Lille OSC is getting closer and closer to the French national title. The club from the north of France defeated OGC Nice in its own stadium and only has to win three games to break the hegemony of Paris Saint-Germain.
Lille OSC — OGC Nice 2-0 The French Ligue 1 is going to get a nerve-wracking slot from the competition and thats because of Lille, which keeps winning. This time Les Dogues tied Nice to the victory cart by Turkish hits from the cunning Burak Yilmaz and Zeki Çelik. In between, Jordan Lotomba got red by the guests from the south of France, and as a result the victory of the team of Sven Botman, who completed the ninety minutes, was no longer in danger.
Nice, who played in the rush hour with ex-Ajacied Kasper Dolberg, could not even get a shot and that proves how strong Lille is at the moment. The team plays three more games and defends a point head start over Paris Saint-Germain. Also Monaco, which can come to two points with a victory at Olympique Lyon, is by no means eliminated. Next week Lille will play the loaded Derby du Nord at RC Lens.
Borussia Dortmund — Holstein Kiel 5-0 The number four of the 2 Bundesliga got a unique chance to make it to the final of the German Cup tournament, but was crooked by Dortmund. The top club already put things in order in the first half: at rest it was 5-0 for BVB and the second half was a formality. Giovanni Reyna (twe), Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard and Jude Bellingham made the goals that brought Dortmund to a final against RB Leipzig.
Crotone – Internazionale 0-2Internazionale has almost entered the first Scudetto since 2010. The team of coach Antonio Conte won 0-2 at the demoted Crotone with goals of Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi. The Danish former Ajacied stood in the field for two minutes, when he broke the spell after 68 minutes. Romelu Lukaku thought to turn it 0-2 after 83 minutes, but the Belgian was whistled back because of the offside of Perisic. In injury time, Hakimi made it 0-2.
Inter, where Stefan de Vrij competed throughout the race, has almost got the Serie A title. If Atalanta Bergamo wasts points against Sassuolo on Sunday, the Nerazzurri can already celebrate. Otherwise, the title can be secured at home next week against Sampdoria. At Crotone, Ajax mercenary Lisandro Magallán filled the 90 minutes.
Paris Saint-Germain – RC Lens 2-1Paris Saint-Germain took no risk against RC Lens with Kylian Mbappé, who suffers from mild calf symptoms. Neymar was part of the party. The Brazilian dribbler opened the score after 33 minutes, after Julian Draxler simply conquered the ball. From a corner shovel of Neymar, Marquinhos entered the 2-0 ten minutes after rest. Lens did not return much later through Ignatius Ganago.
Although a goal by Mauro Icardi did not pass in the final phase because of offside play, PSG – where Mitchel Bakker remained on the bench – pulled the three points across the line. The Parisians take over at least a few hours from Lille, which is still taking action against OGC Nice on Saturday night. PSG now has two more points. On Tuesday, the return against Manchester City is waiting in the Champions League. Then Mbappé is probably usable again.
