FC Lorient. What to remember from the defeat against Nice – FC Lorient

Dango Ouattara, logical realization

And five for Dango Ouattara! Very active on the front of the attack and often at the initiative of Lorient’s good shots, the Burkinabé scored his fifth goal of the season, against Nice (18′, 1-0). Well placed, from the head, on a corner, he came to concretize a very clear domination of the locals at the start of the match. Even if, paradoxically, the people of Nice lit my first fuse, with a failed close range recovery from Barkley (3′).

An expensive first half hour

Hakes can bite their fingers! Hyperactive during the first half hour, the men of Régis Le Bris spoiled a lot. So that with a little success or inspiration in the last gesture, the Lorient people could have led 3-0 and afforded a much more serene match. When Schmeichel did not impose himself in his cage in front of Théo Le Bris (8′), then Stéphane Diarra (22′), it was against Nice, as in front of the same Diarra (13′), who prohibited the Hakes. Following this frustrating half-hour, the Lorient people never regained their fluidity, while conversely, Nice took advantage of a personal exploit by Atal (61 ‘, 1-1) to come back, then a successful counter that lobbed Yvon Mvogo, on a strike from Laborde (1-2, 71′) to take a goal lead. Les Merlus didn’t deserve to lose overall, they could even have grabbed a draw without Lotomba’s rescue on a strike from incoming Adil Aouchiche (84’), but failed to build on their strong moment.

A series that stops

After the euphoria, the Hakes seem to be making landfall since mid-October. Without gravity, since a fourth place on the 13th day of Ligue 1 remains an exceptional passing time for the club, but against Nice, the Lorientais conceded their first defeat since the end of August, after this spectacular setback in Lens (2- 5). Defeated for the second time this season against Nice, and without a win for three days, the Lorient people showed two faces in this match. The one, player, creative and surprising which allowed them to garner 27 points in the league, during the first half hour of the match, then the more tired, less incisive one which let Nice believe in it and create its own success.
