Manchester United were drawn to play LOSC Lille Metropole in the Champions League. Unfortunately Lille decided that they could not play the game at their small stadium and so decided to switch the game to nearby Lens. As Lens is short trip from Calais, we decided to arrange for a coach trip just for the day, heading back after the game. Unfortunately this left no time to see the delights of Lens, other than the slag tips that we saw from the motorway.
My visit to Lens was for the UEFA Champions League First Group Stage, Group G Match.
Manchester United played LOSC Lille Metropole in the Stade Felix Bollaert on 31 October 2001. We drew 1-1.
My second to Lens was for the UEFA Champions League First Knockout Stage, First Leg.
Manchester United played LOSC Lille Metropole in the Stade Felix Bollaert on 20 February 2007. We won 1-0.
- Pros:A short trip from Calais
- Cons:Not too much to sightsee!
- In a nutshell:Played Lille three times now and stayed in Lille only the once!
