Lille explodes in Troyes, taking three penalties and receiving two red cards!


It’s the end of the nightmare for LOSC! Lille lost 3-0 to Troyes after an eventful game marked by two red cards and three penalties!

ESTAC takes three very important points in the race to keep.

“Resignation of Gourvennec”

“Gourvennec resigns” descend from the visitors’ gallery of Lille fans! Very tense atmosphere!


Tardieu transforms this penalty and allows Troyes to end a match – already sealed!


The three pass for ESTAC!

New penalty for Troyes after this great work by Larouci! Tardieu will try to score a third goal.

Entrance of Djalo

Celik gives way to Djalo for his final ten minutes.

Lille trade short passes

The Mastiffs struggle to get around the block – well in place – of the ESTAC and exchange passes in their part of the field. Minutes are hours for Lille in this nightmare final.


Let’s go back to the little stats mentioned before the game started: it was there six red cards in Troyes’ last nine league games!

Very close to 3-0!

Jardim’s splendid save on this cross from Kaboré!

Lille will be able to breathe but the blue wave is not over!


On a very late intervention by Yilmaz on Tardieu, the referee takes out the red!

The LOSC is reduced to nine!

Three changes on Troyes’ side!

Touzghar, Mothiba and Larouci IN

Dingome, Ugbo and Ripart OFF


Fonte crosses his head too much when he was alone in the penalty area! An error that could have allowed Lille to reduce the score.


The post comes to save the Lille goalkeeper on this point blank shot of Ripart’s helmet! Still 2-0!

Yellow for Gudmundsson!

Lille are very nervous and this tackle is the perfect illustration. Beware of visitors so as not to sink completely.

Gomes comes into play!

The first response from the bench: Zhegrova gives way to Gomes!

Trend change

If Lille had returned with more attention, Sanches’ red sounds like a real downtime for the Mastini. Troyes now dictates the game and manages his advantage with great confidence.

Troyes takes a step towards maintenance!

Difficult to say, but this goal could seal the retention of ESTAC in Ligue 1!

Troyes is provisionally 14th, 5 points from AXIS, the first relegated.


ESTAC leads 2-0 against Lille!

After Sanches is sent off, the penalty doesn’t drag on and Troyes breaks in a crucial match in the race to keep!


There will be a second penalty! After a great counterattack by Troyes, Chavalerin tries to find Ugbo, pushed by Botman!

Shot of Tardieu!

The ESTAC captain does not have an excellent predisposition to strike but tries his luck all the same. His shot flies!

Red for Sanches!

Renato Sanches is completely out of his mind!

After grumbling about a yellow card for the first time, Sanches still insists and collects a new cracker.

Second Giallorossi! Lille will end at 10!

Chance for Lille from a corner!

José Fonte’s head does not find the frame but here is a first reaction from Lille in this return from the locker room.

Here we go again !

Start of the second period at the Stade de l’Aube! No changes !

José Fonte rebounds from a penalty

José Fonte, at the microphone of Amazon Prime Video, plagued against the penalty assigned to Troyes: “I wait to see who touched him, we have to stay calm. I want to see who touched him. I also want to see the other situation (the penalty is not whistled on Yilmaz). “

“It clearly throws me off balance, I don’t know if it’s enough to call a penalty, but luck is turning a bit,” said Dingome, who won the penalty.


For the moment it is certain: Lille says goodbye to European locations!

We will have to show another face in the second half to overthrow a team from Troyes who are well positioned on the defense.

1-0 for ESTAC!

Lilac reacts!

Super center of Zhegrova from my right to left. Behind, Fonte tries to slip into the area but finds no one with his head. Troyes will be able to breathe.

The furious Lille bench!

“Scandalous”, launches many Jocelyn Gourvennec staff members!

The referee of the day does a bit of cleaning and distributes two yellow cards to two Lille leaders.


That was the only thing that could unlock the game!

On a penalty, Tardieu arrives to give Troyes the advantage against a too shy Lille. 1-0!

Penalty confirmed!

Florian Tardieu takes care of it!


Penalty for Troyes! Fonte gives Dingome a push in the penalty area! VAR in progress.


5. This is the number of balls that Ugbo has touched in this game. None of them in the penalty area …

Foul by Biancone

Foul of the Biancone in midfield on David. The technical approximations are numerous and follow the faults on a late intervention.

Tardieu strike

Small event: Troyes tried his luck!

For a good thirty meters Tardieu hits from outside the box, and even if he fails to make himself dangerous, this is a first chance for ESTAC.

30 minutes of boredom

Not much happens in that first half hour. Low intensity, a prolonged observation phase and above all very few opportunities. The Trojans are well organized and prevent Lille from making them doubt.

Eh strike!

Nothing to surprise Moulin but finally one of the two teams tries his luck!

On the left side, Weah enters before trying his luck. Hit on target, but not powerful enough to expect anything.

First strike of the match?

Difficult to say. On David’s powerful cross, Yilmaz took advantage of a favorable counterattack to try his luck with his toe. The attacker barely touches the ball and ESTAC easily repels the danger.

Great comeback from Gudmundsson

Lille’s left returns perfectly to Kaboré to avoid hitting him. A great return rewarded since the ball leaves the goal.

Foul by Renato

The Portuguese is doing very well after this tactical anti-match mistake on Kouamé. No card but last warning.

The VAR confirms the referee’s decision!

No sanctions. And it makes sense.

Yilmaz collapses to the surface!

After a slight contact to the hip, the Lille striker collapses in the area. Approximately compared to the first slow motion.

Always nothing …

Not much happens right now. After a quarter of an hour of play, neither team has tried their luck.

Koné finally leaves his post

Injured, Youssouf Koné leaves his post in N’jo for the remainder of the game;

The game resumes

Troyes evolves outnumbered for the moment and the game resumes.

The game is stopped

The injury looks serious and even if Koné recovers, the replacement seems inevitable.

Koné remains on the ground

Koné holds the adductors and remains on the ground after a bad recovery of support.

Lilac grows!

Super collective movement of the LOSC but Chavalerin remains very alert and deflects a cross from Zhegrova. The ball hit Lille’s will-o’-the-wisp before exiting. Troyes may emerge.

The corner gives nothing

The center of Benjamin André ends in the Moulin niche.

Corner for Lille!

After a good work by David on the left, the center is deflected and goes out for a corner.

Cast iron get out!

The Portuguese defender somehow rejects the danger after a nice detour by Biancone. Small warning all the same.

Free kick for ESTAC!

Benjamin André’s foul on Kouamé ten meters from the Lille penalty area, and already a good free-kick for Troyes to follow!

Troyes begins the game!

The first phase of possession is for ESTAC but Tardieu’s pass is too long.

Let’s go !

The kick-off is in Troyes!

Let’s go!

Entry of the 22 actors on the ground! The Aube stadium isn’t full but the atmosphere is there.


This is the small statistic of the meeting: it was there four red cards in Troyes’ last eight league games!
