Leading Group A in the Europa League, Lille travelled to Slovan Bratislava on Thursday evening for the fourth matchday of the competition. The Dogues didn’t lose, but the 1-1 draw with n advantage that Fonseca’s men held for a long time, until Cavric’s almost predictable equaliser (1-1, 80th), after the home side had been denied a penalty earlier (68th) and Chevalier had made a save (75th).
