Lille vs. Strasbourg (1-0): Player Ratings 

Man of the Match: Rémy Cabella (7) – The strong start by Lille was partly thanks to the playmaker of the team. With intense pressure, accurate passes, and a good understanding of the game, he helped his team go into halftime with a slim lead. Unfortunately, he missed a chance to make it 2-0 with a shot just wide five minutes before the break.

Lille Formation (4-2-3-1)

Lucas Chevalier (5) – Not tested much, but came up big towards the end of the match by intercepting a cross from Strasbourg in the 94th minute and a header from Ali in the 95th minute.

Ismaily (5) – Did his job without much trouble. He was substituted in the 62nd minute for Gabriel Gudmundsson.

Bafodé Diakité (6) – A solid performance overall from the young defender, who is likely to feature in the Olympics with the French team in July.

Alexandro (4.5) – Perhaps still feeling the effects of Thursday’s elimination against Aston Villa, the Brazilian received the first yellow card of the match for a foul on Gameiro in the 22nd minute. He missed a chance to score in the 91st minute from a free-kick taken by Zhegrova.

Tiago Santos (5) – Took advantage of a gift from Strasbourg in the 35th minute to take a shot from close range, but Bellaarouch was alert to save. The commentator humorously summarized the first half for the Portuguese player.

Angel Gomes (6.5) – Played a crucial role in Lille’s victory this afternoon. With a passing accuracy of 97% (68/70), he created many opportunities and movements. He was replaced by 16-year-old Ayyoub Bouaddi in the 92nd minute.

Benjamin André (6) – Reliable as always. André won the most duels (12) in the match.

Rémy Cabella (7) – Refer to the above description.

Hakon Haraldsson (5.5) – Less prominent than his attacking partners, he was substituted in the 63rd minute for Ivan Cavaleiro.

Yusuf Yazici (6.5) – Once again delivered a strong performance, scoring just days after his goal in the win against Aston Villa. He was substituted in the 63rd minute for Eden Zhegrova.

Jonathan David (6) – In great form in 2024, he found the back of the net again: following a good press by Cabella on Sow, David scored his 17th goal of the Ligue 1 season in the 13th minute. With Strasbourg making offensive changes, Fonseca opted for defensive changes, leading to David being replaced by Lenny Yoro in the 87th minute.

RC Strasbourg (3-4-2-1)

Alaa Bellaarouch (4): Started the match strongly, making a good save against Yazici’s aerial attempt. However, he couldn’t do much to prevent the only goal of the game later on. His passing was a bit inconsistent, and overall, it wasn’t a standout performance.

Frédéric Guilbert (6): The team captain put in a solid effort throughout the match, trying to secure points on the northern pitch. He almost scored an own goal while attempting to clear a low cross from Haraldsson but managed to deflect the ball for a corner. Strasbourg was close to conceding a second goal at the 30th minute mark. Guilbert was substituted in the 71st minute for Moise Sahi Dion.

Saïdou Sow (2): Had a disastrous performance, making a costly error that led to the opening goal. He consistently put himself in risky situations during the first half, receiving a yellow card just before halftime. Marvin Senaya (Rating: 5) replaced him after a tumultuous first half and made a decent impact.

Lucas Perrin (4): Had a quiet game but managed to win all his tackles (2) and 75% of his duels (3/4).

Abakar Sylla ( 3.5): Playing his first match since scoring against Reims, Sylla seemed off his game. He struggled with ball retention and passing accuracy, failing to win any of his duels (0/3).

Thomas Delaine (5.5): Tasked with marking Yazici, Delaine did well in the first half. With Lille tiring in the second half and Strasbourg pushing forward, he had less defensive work to do. Delaine made crucial interventions, including blocking a dangerous cross from Haraldsson early in the game. Despite missing a chance to equalize with a header from a Sahi cross, he was one of Strasbourg’s key players.

Andrey Santos ( 6): On loan from Chelsea, Santos quickly adapted to Vieira’s tactics and proved to be a key player for the team.

Habib Diarra ( 4): Lacked coordination with Bakwa and made some poor decisions. He received a yellow card for a foul on Cabella.

Ibrahima Sissoko (4): Had a quiet game and was substituted in the 85th minute for Boubacar Ali Abdallah, who came close to scoring a crucial goal.

Dilane Bakwa (3.5): Had a below-par performance, lacking in work rate and effectiveness. He was substituted in the 71st minute for Jérémy Sebas.

Kevin Gameiro ( 4): Took until the 20th minute to register his first shot in the game, marking his milestone of over 100 goals in Ligue 1.
