A record attendance, a touching goodbye, a last day of the championship… This long-awaited RC Lens-Monaco punctuates in a beautiful way an exceptional and historic 2021/2022 campaign!
A European market in sight. The objective is difficult for the Blood and Gold who do not have all the cards in hand. If they have the obligation to win to reach it, they must also deal with certain results of other teams. In a full Bollaert, supporters have the opportunity to pay tribute one last time to their heroes who have shown their qualities, their character and their collective strength throughout this season.
Faced with a Monegasque team in search of qualification for the Champions League, the Lensois presented an irreproachable face and dominated the start of the match, like many clear chances. For visitors, their task is made difficult by a very compact block.
It was on a cross from Jonathan Clauss, poorly cleared by Monaco, that Przemyslaw Frankowski made the difference. His recovery in stride is countered then hits the Monegasque upright before finishing in the net (1-0)! But the artesian joy was short-lived since, five minutes later, Badiashile reduced the score with a shot from close range (1-1).
Back from the break, ASM continued their momentum and dominated the start of this second period. The Lensoise defense remains solid at first against the onslaught of the opponent, but folds after the hour mark. the area (1-2). Everything has to be done.
Tempers flared as the final whistle approached, with both teams not losing sight of their respective goals. On the last free kick of the game, Ignatius Ganago inherits the ball and comes to crucify the Monegasques by equalizing in the 90e+5 from a powerful strike (2-2)!
Even if Europe slips through the fingers of the Lensois, Bollaert explodes with joy in front of so much self-sacrifice, bravery and team spirit!
The Sang et Or celebrate with their supporters a season which ends with an exceptional series of eight consecutive games without defeat, but also the last game of his career as Captain ‘Cahuzac!
Congratulations and thank you gentlemen!
