RC Lens had 42% of the game’s possession and two of its nine shots on goal were successful. Seko Fofana and Los Openda scored goals for RC Lens in the 42nd and 60th minutes, respectively.

Marseille had a total of 13 shots on goal, but they could only muster up a single goal. Dimitri Payet scored the goal for Marseille in the 88th minute.

In their previous six games, RC Lens had little trouble scoring, hitting the goal each time they took the field.

In that time, they have amassed 10, while also giving away a total of five. Naturally, this trend won’t necessarily continue.
