Le Losc no longer impresses many people in Ligue 1, and especially not its own supporters.
Even striker Burak Yilmaz, so precious last season in the quest for the title, came out under the whistles of the Pierre-Mauroy stadium, going straight to the locker room, visibly recovered.
The Lille had yet opened the scoring thanks to Jonathan David (19th), but they gradually fell apart, and even pitched against the 18th in Ligue 1 (6 pts), who equalized on a badly deflected free kick from Romain Faivre ( 32nd) and even created several opportunities in the second half.
A week after the pitiful defeat in Clermont (1-0), and three days after another draw in the Champions League against Sevilla FC (0-0), synonymous with stagnation in C1, Losc does not take off from the middle of ranking (9th, 15 pts), while he could have joined the top 5 if successful.
La Beaujoire exults
The top 5 on the contrary smiled in Nantes after this 11th day.
The Canaries (17 pts) continued their good streak by winning for the 3rd time in a row at La Beaujoire, delivered by Ludovic Blas against Clermont, 14th (13 pts).
The match, initially very tense with two exclusions in the first period and some spat between the two coaches, then more unbridled in the second, delighted the Nantes supporters, who ended the match in vibrant chants.
Nantes lives again: three victories at home, it is indeed the total of ... all of last season, ended on the verge of relegation.

"We had a huge match", jubilated the coach Antoine Koumbouaré, without forgetting to remind his players to remain "humble", because the program is full-bodied with a series of meetings against Paris SG, Lille then Marseille in three days between November 20 and December 1.
PSG and OM are far from thinking of their future Nantes opponent: they have an appointment Sunday evening (9 p.m.) at the Vélodrome for a Ligue 1 classic with the smell of powder, the first of Lionel Messi under his news colors.
Before that, Lens will try to keep its second place against Metz (3:00 p.m.), and Lyon will challenge Nice (1:00 p.m.) in another shock from the top of the table, with the two teams totaling 16 points.
Friday, at the end of an evening of chaos, between jets of smoke and kickoff delayed by angry Stéphanois supporters, the red lantern Saint-Etienne had snatched the draw against Angers (2-2).
But ASSE risks sanctions: the Disciplinary Commission of the League has planned to meet on Monday to study the incidents.
