Reims Lille 2-1, goals and highlights from Ligue 1

Reims managed to obtain a precious and suffered success. García’s men imposed themselves with the slightest gap but, to be honest, they never found themselves at a disadvantage. After 32 minutes of play, the initial balance is broken by Munetsi’s goal. Lille, who have put down an initial line-up that had the aim of being able to defend with order but also to hurt at the restart, is already in pursuit of a draw, paying attention not to grant big doubling opportunities. A possible double disadvantage would mean an ever-climbing race. The draw becomes reality in the 57th minute. Both teams must therefore start from scratch thinking about how to bring the match home. The seal on the victory of Reims is set by Abdelhamid who gives his team the final victory for 2-1.

Thanks to Marshall Munetsi’s goal in the 32nd minute, Reims closed the first half with a 1-0 lead. Lille responded in the second half with Renato Sanches in the 57th and equalized the match, Abdelhamid’s final goal in the 92nd ended the result and brought the three points to him.

Despite the result, the match was in balance. Lille had more ball possession (59%), while Reims prevailed in terms of total shots (10-20) and had more corners (6-2).

The guests have successfully completed more passes than the opponent (477-303): Renato Sanches (79), José Fonte (71) and Benjamin André (65) stood out. For the hosts, Azor Matusiwa was the most accurate player with 44 successful passes.

Marshall Munetsi was the player with the most attempts for Reims: 2 times, both on goal. For Lilla it was Renato Sanches who tried harder, shooting 5 times, including 2 on goal.
In Reims, midfielder Jens Cajuste was the best of his opponents in terms of tackles won (7 but there are also 9 lost duels). Midfielder Edon Zhegrova was the most effective in Lille’s ranks with 10 tackles won (13 played in total).

Reims’ success today has the obvious consequence of putting three points on the farm, raising García’s team to 40 points in the standings. The setback of Lilla leaves J. da Rocha Fonte and his companions at 48 points
