Lens won, this Friday, at home, Strasbourg by 2-1, in a game of the 30th round of the French League, and provisionally isolated itself in second place, three points behind leader Paris Saint-Germain.
Goals from Poland’s Frankowski, in the 11th minute, and from Argentina’s Medina, in the 64th minute, gave victory to the team led by Franck Haise, who launched the Portuguese David Pereira da Costa in the 78th minute.
Kevin Gameiro still reduced for the outsiders, at 84, but no longer avoided defeat, which leaves them in 16th place, with 26 points, a second consecutive defeat that leaves no room for the relegation places of the group that ended today reduced to 10, by expulsion from Diallo (90+4).
At the opposite extreme, the home triumph leaves Lens with 63, three more than Marseille and three less than Paris Saint-Germain, when both historic players from France still have to play in this round.
On Saturday, the team from the capital will try, in Nice, to end a series of two defeats in a row, with the Marseilles playing on Easter Sunday in the Lorient field.
