Après Reims - OL : les chiffres du match
Despite a draw against Reims that was frustrating in more than one way, OL's players reached several important milestones, proof that the club's season has been a good one -- here's a closer look at some of those.

By delivering a perfect cross for Tino Kadewere's header, Memphis recorded his ninth assist of the season. This total sees him to take the lead in the assists table in Ligue 1, before the other matches of the round. While he more often gains notice for his goals (14 this season), the Dutchman has shown since joining the club four years ago that he is also an outstanding passer of the ball. In fact, no one has more assists in the league than his 41 since his arrival in January 2017, despite only making 13 appearances before suffering a serious knee injury last season.

In preventing OL from leaving Reims empty-handed thanks to a superb header, Tino Kadewere scored his tenth goal of the season in Ligue 1. Top scorer in Ligue 2 last season, the Zimbabwean has adapted perfectly to the top flight. In addition to scoring goals against Saint-Etienne and PSG, the striker has also scored many goals which have brought in extremely important in terms of the points they have earned for the club.

OL became the first club in Europe's top five leagues to have three players in their team with at least ten goals: Memphis has 14, Toko Ekambi 12, and Tino Kadewere ten goals. The "KTM" trio has thus scored more than 60% of the club's goals in Ligue 1. By reaching this total on the 29th Matchday, this trio join three legendary players from the club's history: Serge Chiesa, Fleury Di Nallo and Bernard Lacombe, who had also scored ten goals each, at the same stage of the league season, during the 1973-1974 season.
