Lille, unheard of since 1964

Reigning French champion, Losc is struggling to keep its rank.

Attractive, Tuesday, on the occasion of his entry into the running in the Champions League, the Losc was much less inspired on Saturday during the derby in Lens. So much so that the Mastiffs saw their streak of 12 unbeaten matches against the Sang et Or stop dead, the Lensois winning 1-0 thanks to a Frankowski goal scored at the start of the last quarter of an hour .

This defeat darkens a little more the table of the champion of France since the beginning of the season. After six day, the Northerners have only 5 points. It is nothing less than the fourth lowest total of points in the history of the championship behind FC Sète in 1934/35 (2), FC Nantes in 2001/02 (2) and Stade de Reims in 1955 / 56 (3).

For many in the coronation of Lille last season, the defense is much more sore this season with already no less than 12 goals conceded in six matches. To find such a permeable champion, we have to go back to the 1964-65 season when Saint-Etienne also posted 12 goals conceded after six days.
