Ligue 1 – Lorient, PSG’s new dauphin against OM, Strasbourg achieves its first victory

Brest-Lorient: 1-2

Lorient, this story is very serious. Les Merlus won a Breton derby marked by incidents in the morning, in the center of the city of Brest between ultra teams, against a well-limited Stade Brestois (1-2) on Francis Le Blé’s pitch. Led on the scoreboard after Romain Del Castillo’s goal (17th), Régis Le Bris’s men could count on their serial goalscorer Terem Moffi (24th, 53rd) to turn the match around. His brace propels FCL to second place in Ligue 1, one point behind PSG. Lorient is on an incredible string of 6 rank wins. Awesome.

Lorient, what is the secret?


  • what we remember : Lorient is a candidate for Europe. Brest is now well last and the concern is great for SB29, adrift.

Angers-Strasbourg: 2-3

Strasbourg finally has it! The only team that has yet to taste victory this season after nine games, the Alsatian team put an end to this annoying shortage this Sunday afternoon, in Angers (2-3). Fair reward for the good performance of the visitors, who made the difference thanks to Kévin Gameiro (0-1, 7th), a “CSC” by Miha Blazic (1-2, 33rd) and Habib Diallo (1-3, 58th) . Adrien Hunou had leveled in a good way (1-1, 11), before Blazic caught up with him late in the match (2-3, 87) and gave the SCO hope. Racing trembled in the final minutes, but held on until the end.

  • what we remember : Already beaten at Raymond-Kopa by Brest (1-3) and Reims (2-4), the Anjou club is still going through at home against a poorly ranked team.

Nice-Troyes: 3-2

Okay, the demo, then the scare. Lucien Favre’s Aiglons dominated Troyes (3-2) in front of their home crowd at the Allianz Riviera and performed well in the standings (13th with 11 points). Ideally launched by the goal from Italian Mattia Viti (2nd), the OGCN players then brought the point home thanks to Andy Delort’s penalty (37th) and a goal from Nicolas Pépé (50th). Everything was going well until the 70th minute and then the Aiglons let loose, conceding two goals signed by Xavier Chavalerin (83) and Abdu Conte (90). Without consequence in the final result.

  • what we remember : If Nice produced play and offered a coherent collective (movements, combinations, defensive effort), their relaxation at the end of the game is not acceptable at this level.

Clermont-Auxerre: 2-1

Clermont did well to persevere. After seeing two goals disallowed for offside in the first half, Auvergnat’s men forced the decision in the second half against Auxerre (2-1). In quick succession, Saîf-Eddine Khaoui (1-0, 55th) and Grejohn Kyei (2-0, 58th) thrilled Gabriel-Montpied and knocked out the Icaunais. Jubal certainly narrowed the gap late in the match (2-1, 90+2), but the Burgundians were generally too timid to hope for better.

  • what we remember : The humorous gesture of Jean-Marc Furlan, expelled at the end of the match and who broke off with an ugly gesture in the direction of the Clermont stands.
