After the draw between Olympique Lyonnais and FC Nantes (1-1), followed by Lille’s victory over Toulouse (2-1), the 28th day of Ligue 1 continued this Saturday evening on the lawn of the Bollaert stadium. Delelis, where Racing Club de Lens, on the last step of the podium, but only two units from OM, faced Angers SCO, bottom of the championship and not far from being condemned to relegation to Ligue 2. A victory allowed the Sang-et-Or to pass the dolphin of PSG and take the lead on AS Monaco, being only three points behind.
The start of the game seemed rather balanced between the two formations, the RCL handicapped by its passage to 4 behind.

Danso was not far from sealing the score a few minutes later, brushing against the right post (53rd).
The men of the interim Alexandre Dujeux got themselves some opportunities, but without worrying the rear guard much northerner.

Despite the domination of the premises until the final whistle, the score did not change. With this great success, the RCL temporarily takes second place at OM, traveling to Reims on Sunday evening.
