It was at 3 p.m. local time on October 1 that the RC Lens match against Stade Reims began at the Bollaert-Delelis stadium. 90 minutes later it ended on a two-goal score for RC Lens. As the first half was about to end with a zero all over, Lens got a corner that quickly changed to a shot on goal after the foul in the box by opposing player Hugo Ekitike in the 45th minute. Arnaud Kalimuendo turned that chance into a goal before heading to the locker room to prepare for the second half.
The start of it will only widen the gulf that separates the two teams. Indeed, because in the 52nd minute it was Arnaud Kalimuendo, who will repeat the feat of putting the ball in the back of the net with a very nice assist from Florian Sotoca. Despite Lens being on the power play, the score will not move and the match will end with a possession of more than 61% for Lens and 39% for Reims. Note that JMG Academy player Cheick Doucouré played more than 89 minutes on the green lawn and gave a performance worthy of this great match!
