Ligue 1: Openda Scores Brace To Move Lens Past Angers Into S

Lois Openda

Belgium striker Lois Openda's sensational form continued as he scored twice to lead RC Lens to a comfortable 3-0 home victory against Angers on Saturday, moving them up to second place in Ligue 1.

After scoring a hat-trick in five minutes against Clermont last weekend, Openda struck twice against Angers, with Sekou Fofana scoring the opener for Lens.

This win takes their points tally to 57 from 28 games, just one point ahead of Olympique de Marseille and nine behind league leaders Paris St Germain.

The victory was Lens' sixth win in their last seven games, as they look to secure their place in the top four. Marseille will be hoping to close the gap on Lens as they travel to Stade de Reims on Sunday.

The result was another blow for bottom-placed Angers, who have now lost 22 games this season and have only collected 10 points. Openda's goals take his tally to 14 goals in Ligue 1 this season, a feat last achieved by Anto Drobnjak in 1997-98, in the colours of Lens.
