FC Lorient offers Stade Rennais


Under the eyes of new recruit Bamba Dieng, made official during the meeting, FC Lorient was keen to win in the Derby de la Bretagne. But beyond the regional issue, it was above all necessary to stay in the race for Europe and win against Stade Rennais, which remained on a big victory against PSG (1-0). Without Kalimuendo and Terrier, injured, Bruno Genesio trusted Gouiri, ahead of Doué and Bourigeaud. On the Lorient side, Ouattara and Moffi, awaiting departure, were absent.

But despite these absences, the Hakes did not panic. Perfectly entered this match, the Lorient people were offensive and Le Fée offered a first strike, deflected by Mandanda (11th). But on the following action, Talbi, alone at the far post on the corner, could take the ball with a header to open the scoring (1-0, 13th). Powerless, Stade Rennais failed to prove dangerous and then logically gave in. After a sublime solitary rush, Le Bris snuck into the box to unleash a shot from the left, right in the top corner (2-0, 31′).

Lorient still impresses

A considerable lead at the break, while the Orange and Black thought of scoring the 3-0 goal, but Ponceau was caught by the VAR and signaled offside (47th). The Rennais then finally showed themselves to be dangerous. After a good breakthrough from Traoré, on his side, the side could transmit back for Tait, who could then reduce the score (2-1, 73rd). But the Rennes highlight was too weak and Genesio’s men seemed to lack the juice to equalise. On the only clear chance at the end of the match, Mannone was exceptional in front of Gouiri (90th +1).

A week after their victory against Paris Saint-Germain, Stade Rennais fell on the lawn of FC Lorient, with a much less flamboyant face. In the standings, the Hakes are two points behind their evening rival and will have to confirm in Reims, during the next day, probably with new recruits. The SRFC therefore temporarily retains its fifth place, but will have to return to success against Strasbourg, on the occasion of the 21st day.
