The Lille is champion of France. He had to wait until the last day but his victory against Angers (1-2) has confirmed him as the best team in a Ligue 1 that had not raised for five years, even with Eden Hazard in their ranks (2010/11 season). His fifth ever.
It was a victory of pure merit. Whenever a team wins a league it is fair, but more so considering that the Lille has ousted the almighty Paris saint germain, with Neymar Y Mbappe in the lead, and with an absolutely monstrous budget in comparison. A spectacular feat.
The secret of the team Christophe galtier It has been none other than knowing how to make the perfect mix between quality players with experience and new wisdom. The under-25-year-old average says it all for a team that has had veteran players as pillars in two of its four lines Jose Fonte (37) has rejuvenated in the center of the rear and in the area it has been decisive Burak yilmaz (35) and his 16 goals. They, mixed with the talents of Botman, Celik, Renato Sanches, Bamba and Jonathan David, have been fundamental to the success of the team.
Regularity has been the basis of this Lille, which already attacked the leadership at the beginning of February and has remained there, taking advantage of a PSG that he did not gain much with the change of Tuchel for Pochettino on the bench. In fact, in the direct duels between the two, Lille tied the first, but came out as the winner in the second (0-1), in a duel that ended the patience of Neymar, expelled, and that this season he will have to settle only with the French Cup.
