RC Lens striker Loïs Openda retained his Ligue 1 player of the month title against Alexis Sanchez, who was nominated for the second time.
The distance duel between Lens andABOUT again turned in favor of the Northerners. Loïs Openda, on fire for a few months with the Sang et Or, won the UNFP Trophy for player of the month in April after being the winner in April. The Belgian striker has 19 goals before the last 3 matches.

Alexis Sanchez, named just like the Clermontois Grejohn Kyei, is again ahead. The Chilean veteran of OM had been “beaten” by Wissam Ben Yedder for the title of player of the month for January.
We have to go back to March 2019 to see an OM player rewarded as Ligue 1 player of the month. It was Mario Balotelli.
