RC Lens held their rank this Saturday during their opposition against Angers in the league (3-0). Lois Openda scored twice.
Third in Ligue 1, Franck Haise’s RC Lens enforced the hierarchy this Saturday during their opposition against the bottom of the championship, SCO Angers. In their stronghold of Bollaert, the Artésiens won without too much difficulty 3 to 0.
Openda double goalscorer
Author of a hat-trick last week against Clermont, the Belgian Lois Openda was once again illustrated. This time, he offered himself a double (30e and 46e). The nugget of Blood and Gold showed a lot of realism in the last gesture to allow his team to seal the fate of this tussle fairly quickly.

Before Openda made the powder speak, Seko Fofana had opened the mark for the RCL. The Franco-Ivorian midfielder unblocked the situation with a crossfire (26e). Once the worst was done, there was only one team on the field. Fofana could also have offered himself a double (66e), except for the intervention of Paul Bernardoni.
14 – Loïs Openda scored his 14th goal in Ligue 1 2022/23, the highest tally for a Lens player in a single season in the top flight since Anto Drobnjak in 1997/98 (also 14). Devil. #RCLSCO pic.twitter.com/rPTaYb6scK
