first team / OL - Lille D-3

Notes on… LOSC

Published on the 20 September 2007 à 12:30 by R.B

LOSC is moving slowly and steadily this season, proving to be draw specialists, with 6 draws from 8 matches. The Dogues are less incisive at the moment than they have been in the past… The recent arrival of Kluivert should add a little sting to the Nordistes’ attack…

1 win: 2-1 in Metz.

1 loss: 1-0 at home to Monaco.

6 draws: Lorient 0- 0, Sochaux 1-1, Le Mans 1-1, PSG 1 -1, Rennes 2-2 and Bordeaux 1-1.

The Lillois are undefeated on the road. They have won 6 of their 9 points away from home.

8 goals scored: Bastos 2, Maric 1, Dumont 1, Fauvergue 1, Makoun 1, Franquart 1 and Cabaye 1. 1 goal from outside the area; 5 headed goals; 2 goals after corners, including one directly from a corner (in Metz); 2 goals after free kicks; 2 goals after crosses. 6 goals in the first half. 112 shots.

8 goals conceded: 3 from outside the area; 2 after crosses; 1 after a throw-in. 101 shots.

22 players used. Beria has played all 8 matches in their entirety. Dumont and Plestan have played in all 8 matches.

17 yellow cards: Beria 2, Makoun 2, Lichsteiner 2, Plestan 2…

1 red card: Obraniak.

In their 10 most recent visits to Gerland, the men of LOSC have won twice (the last time being 3-1 in season 2005-06); drawn 3 times and lost 5, including last season’s 4-1 drubbing.

Patrick Kluivert is Lille’s newest recruit. He played his first minutes against Bordeaux when he replaced Fauvergue in the 64th minute.
