Lille, the incredible black series

Despite a good performance, Lille had to be content with a draw against Wolfsburg (0-0), stretching a little more a dramatic series for Losc.

Little In vain tried everything until the last moments of the meeting, like the penalty that Amadou Onana thought he had obtained at the end of extra time, the Mastiffs could not do better than a draw and virgin (0-0), Tuesday, against Wolfsburg for their entry into the running in the Champions League. A result which already weighs down Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men in the race for qualification for the round of 16.

This draw also blackens the table of Losc on the most prestigious of European stages. The Lille, who finished in last place in their group in their last three appearances in C1, have thus chained a 12th match in a row without a win at home in the Champions League. The worst series of its kind for a French club. We must indeed go back to October 2006 and a success against AEK Athens (3-1) to find traces of a home victory for Lille. A match also played in the rival’s lair, in Felix-Bollaert.

And the Northerners have maintained another bad habit: Lille did not indeed win any of its opening matches in the Champions League, having to settle for three draws and four defeats. While waiting for the entry into the running of the PSG, this counter-performance is to be added to the balance sheet of the French clubs other than the club of the capital and that the Olympique Lyonnais. Since 2017, they have won only one of their last 33 matches, drawing six and losing 26.
