RC Lens lost their first Champions League game of the season to PSV Eindhoven (1-0) at the Philips Stadion on Wednesday, in heavy rain and with a lot of tension on the pitch (8 yellows and 1 red). The defeat could prove costly for the Sang et Or, who also lost their second-place position in the Champions League group. xcluded for a second caution (90th+2), leaving his team-mates outnumbered.

Lens thus leave PSV in second place in the group, with their fate now in their own hands. Brice Samba and his team-mates will need a result at Arsenal on the next and penultimate day of the C1 group stage to have any hope of reaching the last 16.
