Ligue 1: Dijon returns to victory, bad operation for Lens … what to remember from the multiplex

RC Lens
The multiplex offered six goals Sunday, April 18, including three from the penalty spot.

Four meetings were on the program of the multiplex this Sunday, April 18 at 3 p.m. Lens snatched the draw on the lawn of Brest (1-1), while Dijon was comforted with a 2-0 victory against Nice. For its part, Nîmes drew at home (1-1) against Strasbourg and Reims and Metz left without a goal (0-0).

The DFCO received OGC Nice this Sunday, April 18 to hope to end the black series of twelve consecutive defeats in Ligue 1. It is done. The Dijonnais won at home 2-0 thanks to the achievements of Fouad Chafik (50th) and Yassine Benzia from the penalty spot (76th). A victory that puts a little sun in the dark sky of the men of David Linarès, still last in the championship with 18 points, and destined for relegation.

The Lensois traveled to Brest in the hope of bringing back three points and further consolidating their lead in the race for Europe. But the Sang et Or left almost empty-handed with only one point in the bag, thanks to a penalty converted by Gael Kakuta (72nd), and two red cards (Franck Haise and Steven Fortes) after the 1-1 draw against the Brestois. An insufficient operation since they only have one point ahead of Marseille who won against Lorient on Saturday April 17th. The Lensois will have to hang on in the coming weeks if they want to keep this fifth place synonymous with European qualification.

The Nîmes could have done better since they led in the score thanks to a penalty from Renaud Ripart (55th) until Strasbourg equalized by Dimitri Liénard ten minutes before the final whistle (82nd) ​​forcing the Crocodiles will have to be content of the draw (1-1). A bad operation for Pascal Plancque’s players who remain in the red zone with 31 points and risk seeing FC Nantes return to equal points in the event of victory against Olympique Lyonnais (9 p.m.). The suspense remains maximum at the bottom of the table.
