Lille: David (5th), Ounas (53rd)
Toulouse: Chaibi (48th)
On the eighth day of Ligue 1, Lille earned a victory at home against Toulouse by a score of 2-1 on Saturday evening at the Pierre Mauroy stadium. A match that was highlighted by Lille’s domination despite the lack of reality displayed by Toulouse.
The first period is distinguished by a mastery of LOSC, which caused the visitors of Pierre Mauroy to get disappointed. After a solid triangle game from LOSC, Jonathan David was excellently served in the depth on a rapid counter from Lille. The shot taken by the Canadian was delayed on the right side of the playing field before it was wrapped up in the skylight (5th). In this first act, Toulouse did not receive what it deserved but yet struggled to be effective. Despite having a higher percentage of possession (54%), or a greater amount of shots on goal, the TFC’s offensive animation was woefully inaccurate and unrealistic (9 shots). Angel Gomes also missed the goal of the interval after putting three purple defenders in the wind with a dribble, but his shot was too crushed to deceive Maxime Dupé. On the other hand, the Mastiffs got fewer chances, but all of their opportunities were open and threatening (26th).
Immediate responses and activities.
In the second half, Toulouse immediately tied the game by capitalizing on a significant error made by the Lille defense to fool Chevalier in the wake of Chaibi (48th). But in the minutes that followed, LOSC was able to get back on track thanks to Adam Ounas, who volleyed the excellent chance that Benjamin André had provided (52nd). Bamba, who was served in the middle, failed to score the goal of the break under a situation in which there were three players against one because he hesitated too much between the shot and the pass (58th). The Toulouse was not nearly as dangerous in the second half, as seen by the fact that they only framed one strike out of a total of five opportunities in the final act. On the other hand, Lille maintained their concentration to secure a vital victory despite making some mistakes defensively.
Lille leapfrogs Toulouse in the rankings by claiming three valuable points and moving into the sixth position, while Toulouse continues to languish in the bottom half of the table in the twelfth spot.
