  • Winner Thursday on the lawn of Sparta Prague, Lille has started its Europa League campaign well.
  • The only French club to win this first week of the European Cup, Losc has still shown great things.
  • Thanks to a hat-trick from Turkish Yazici, the northern club finally put an end to their black streak of seventeen straight games without a win in the European Cup.

Le Losc did not doubt against the Czechs. Large winner Thursday evening (1-4) on the lawn of Sparta Prague, Lille will therefore have been the only formation of France to win during this first week of the European Cup. Paris, Marseille and Nice beaten, Rennes held in check, France’s salvation finally came from the leader of Ligue 1 who took the lead of Group H at the outset before receiving Celtic Glasgow on Thursday beaten at home by AC Milan ( 1-3).

Lille changes but always wins

The turnover expected has taken place. With five changes from the team that started Sunday against Lens (4-0), Christophe Galtier took advantage of this first Europa League match to revive players lacking playing time (Xeka, Soumaré, Ikoné , Yazici, Foot). Well it took him because Lille has just won thanks to goals from the usual substitutes like Yazici (45th, 60th, 75th) and Ikoné (66th). If doubt invaded Losc a little when Dockal equalized just after half-time (46th), the fear was short-lived for a Ligue 1 leader sure of his strength and still undefeated this season.

Yusuf Yazici’s big night

In numerical superiority following the rapid expulsion of Krejci (23rd), the leader of Ligue 1 however took time to worry the Czech defense. Salvation came from a splendid strike from 25 meters from Yusuf Yazici (45th). The Turkish international once again put on the savior’s costume by giving the Mastiffs the advantage thanks to a good recovery of the head (60th) before carrying the blow at the end of the match (75th). Arrived last season in the North, the midfielder, victim of a cruciate ligament rupture in the knee in December 2019, had a complicated first year. Already a scorer on Sunday in the derby, the Turk has finally found confidence.

The end of an incredible black series

By winning in Prague, the Losc stopped a sad series. It has been six years since the northern club had won the European Cup (Champions League and Europa League combined). In the meantime, Lille had gone on 17 games in a row without a win on the European stage. Quite simply the worst series in history for a French club.
