Whatever the weather, bright sunshine shines over northern France as spring approaches. The two Ligue 1 clubs from the Hauts-de-France region are in a really good mood after their respective outings on Saturday 18 March, during the 28th day of Ligue 1.

Contrary to the Angevin red lantern at the Bollaert stadium, Lensois didn’t make it in the lace. Big winners (3-0), the Artésiens temporarily move up to second place in Ligue 1, one point ahead of Olympique de Marseille, who travel to Reims at the end of this 28th day.

Lois Openda strikes again

To temporarily regain this dolphin spot, which has been theirs for a long time this season, RC Lens was able to count on its strong men. Captain Seko Fofana opened the scoring first, before Loïs Openda scored twice. The young Belgian prodigy thus remains on five goals in two games, following his record hat-trick on the Clermont pitch on matchday 27.

Just before the afternoon, and after an interruption caused by a violent storm, Losc won in Toulouse (2-0), thanks to the goals of Alexsandro Ribeiro and Mohamed Bayo.

Lille took the opportunity to take fifth place, qualifying for the Europa League conference, at the expense of Rennes, who moved to the Parc des Princes on Sunday afternoon.
