LIVE – Troyes-Lens: the Lensois avoid a disappointment but leave the field open to PSG


It’s over ! Lens snatches the equalizer at the end of the match against Troyes (1-1) but lets slip points if PSG wins tomorrow evening. Led from the start of the second period, the Sang et Or saved the point from a draw thanks to Thomasson!

4 minutes more

There will be 4 minutes of added time in this game! The tension goes up a notch in the last few minutes.


Here it is the equalization of Lens! Center at the far post for Said who puts him back in line! Gallon pushes back on Thomasson who finishes the job, 1 to 1!


Rony Lopes goes against and serves Odebert who gives him back! Lopes sends his shot from the right over Samba’s goal. The knockout goal was not far off.

Lens lacks a solution

The ball circles around the Trojan area but Lens still can’t find the solution! Time flies !

Huge opportunity for Lopes

Troyes goes against and offers a goal opportunity to Rony Lopes who sends the ball above the goals of Samba!

Troyes finally comes out

ESTAC puts a little pep in its game and finally brings out the ball! But short-lived!

Said chained the feints, not the strike

Found in the area, Wesley Said chained body feints and strikes but failed to shoot on goal!

Sotoca misses the target

Another opportunity for Lens with Sotoca who did not find the frame on a shot that was too crushed. Openda and Claude Maurice leave the field, Da Costa and Said enter the game.

Lens tries to react

The Blood and Gold are stung and try to come back to score! But Troyes holds the shock and plays the shots well.


Finally it is Troyes who opens the score by Larouci! Well orchestrated by the two Baldés, the ball returns to the far post for Larouci who sends a small opposite net shot! 1 to 0 for ESTAC!


It’s the break ! Without much solution but ultra-dominant, Lens did not find the opening on the Troyes lawn after 45 minutes of play. Difficult to move this ESTAC team very well in place despite some flashes from Frankowski or dangerous moves by Fofana. In short, we will have to do better to find the opening!

2 minutes left to play

Sotoca takes the strike

Found at the entrance to the area, Florian Sotoca takes the shot but it’s way too crushed!

Baldé remains on the ground

Mama Baldé remains on the ground, visibly touched in the foot. He leaves temporarily, limping, not sure that he will take his place again.

Good exit from Gallon

Found on the right, Abdul Samed sends a nifty little cross for Sotoca’s header but Gallon comes out fists!


Although thrown deep, Openda fails to find a space to shoot. It doesn’t matter, it comes back to Claude Maurice who doesn’t cross his shot enough!

Corner shot by Frankowski but it’s sent back in front of the surface… Fofana takes the shot with one touch but it’s way above!

Lens quiet but not too much

Once again, Troyes is trying to overtake Lens with fast counterplay! For the moment, the blood and gold hinge stays the course!

Lens taken against

Lens exposes itself to a lot of counterattacks and fouls Mama Baldé! It’s Fofana this time but he doesn’t take a card.

Card for Danso!

What a job from Chavalerin who pulls off a great bridge over Danso! The Austrian commits a fault and takes a yellow card, the Trojan player could go to the goal.

It’s heating up in front of the Trojan goal

Well launched by Sotoca, Frankowski crosses to the penalty spot but there is confusion! Claude-Maurice tries a shot at the end of the race but concedes the six meters.
