Leading 1-0 for Troyes in the first round of the Coupe de la Ligue, Lens was able to reverse the situation (2-1) to qualify.
It would be a little over two months. At the end of May, Lens managed to win Troyes (2-1, ap) in the Ligue 2 dams. Except this time, Blood and Gold made the difference in regulatory time.
The Trojans led the score via Kouyaté, completely forgotten by Ducrocq, who seized the opportunity for a close acrobatic recovery (1-0, 10). Defeated by this action, however, Desprez allowed his training to remain in the game with great savings in the reboot of Mambo's head (43).
Always eliminated at the beginning of the last quarter of an hour, Lance then knew how to reverse everything. From a free kick by Robail, Sene evened (1-1, 75th). Then Banza, after a great job by Charles Boli, offered to qualify Lensois (2-1, 84th), who will face Clermont in the second round.
