FC Lorient.  Support in pain in Bordeaux – FC Lorient

Ligue 1 (37th day). Bordeaux-Lorient: 0-0

“You are the shame of our 140 years of history”: it was hot this Saturday in Bordeaux, as in the enclosure of the Matmut Atlantique, where the Utramarines gave a very hostile welcome to the local players, last of Ligue 1, but not yet condemned at kick-off. On the other side, a hundred Lorient supporters were present in the visitor parking lot to support their team, not yet saved but in a much more comfortable 17th position, with three points ahead of the barrage Saint-Étienne. A victory against the Girondins, the worst defense in Ligue 1, ensured the maintenance of the Merlus, who never won in Bordeaux and remained on a sad series of three defeats for ten goals conceded.

The pressure on the people of Bordeaux

In the game of who will be under pressure, it was the shoulders of the Girondins who were the heaviest in the first minutes. But the Hakes did not know how to take advantage of the spaces left by their opponent in the middle, nor of their first situations. There was room, however, against a team at first harmless and harassed by its Ultras, who promised “it’s going to end badly”, before throwing rolls of toilet paper on Matthieu Dreyer’s cage, causing the interruption of the game on the half hour.

Lorient kept control of the ball, most often without knowing what to do with it. The midfielders struggled to find the attackers, like Terem Moffi who was not very mobile in the box. Armand Laurienté and Enzo Le Fée were the most enterprising, but often found themselves isolated. And Dango Ouattara got the clearest chances, without unfortunately putting them in the background (16′, 40′, 59′). By missing the last gesture too much, the Bretons discovered themselves and managed the feat of putting Bordeaux back in the game. The Girondins got several chances through Hwang Ui-Jo and Sékou Mara. And Matthieu Dreyer came close to the correctional on a poorly controlled exit at the feet of Fransergio (59 ‘).

Hakes bend but do not break

In a game never far from football hooray, with a lot of waste on each side, we felt that the match could switch at any time, in one direction or the other. But it was Lorient who felt the pressure in front of their goal, in an end to the match made stifling as much by the tensions between Enzo Le Fée and the Girondin players reduced to 10, as by the smoke bombs of the Ultramarines. The Hakes bent, but did not break. And the Bordeaux Ultras could sing “we are in Ligue 2”.

While the point of the draw is enough for the happiness of FC Lorient, which validates its maintenance in Ligue 1 on Saturday, thanks to the defeat of Saint-Étienne against Reims (1-2). The Hakes will be able to celebrate as it should next week at Moustoir, against Troyes. Without pressure, with a little more play and goals.
