Arrived at the top of the classification of the 2nd national level with one point ahead of … Lens, Lorient was crowned Ligue 2 champion despite a big blow less well before the season ended because the club had been beaten 4 times in 5 meetings. Very active during the summer transfer window, the Merlus negotiated their return to the elite by winning with the manner against Strasbourg (3-1) during the 1st day. Then, Christophe Pélissier’s men could not stand up to Saint-Etienne before the international break (2-0).

Lens, for its part, therefore finished in 2nd place in the standings last March, one point behind the leader from Lorient and one ahead of the 3rd Ajaccian before the season was definitively interrupted. The Sang et Or were therefore able to join the elite after several years of absence. However, the return to the highest level of the Northerners is not ideal for the moment since they were defeated by Nice (2-1) on the 1st day. On the other hand, Thursday evening, they reacted perfectly by winning against a PSG team certainly very diminished but still superior on paper to Bollaert.
