FC Lorient.  What to remember from the defeat in Nice – FC Lorient
  • 1. Lorient agreed to undergo

  • It is an understatement to say that the first half of this meeting between Aiglons and Merlus was not very pleasant to watch. The objective of Christophe Pelissier, the FCL coach, then seemed clear: leave the monopoly of the ball to his opponent, wait for him with a very low defensive line, not concede a goal to take a point, and possibly take advantage a counter to trap the Azureans. A strategy undermined after the break by the penalty conceded by Moritz Jenz and converted by Andy Delort (54 ‘). After their quick equaliser, the Lorientais seemed to change tactics and ventured more into the opposing camp, so much so that they were not so far, for a time, from taking the advantage… until the 89th minute .

  • 2. No breath of fresh air in the rankings

  • Despite their setback, FC Lorient is guaranteed to retain its 16th place at the end of the 32nd day of Ligue 1, this Sunday evening, since Saint-Étienne (17th) has already played and the last three, Clermont, Bordeaux and Metz, cannot overtake them yet. But the meeting between the Lorrains and the Auvergnats, from 3 p.m. this Sunday, will certainly be followed with attention by the followers of the Morbihannais club: in the event of victory, Clermont would return to equal points with the FCL, which would only remain in front goal difference.

  • 3. Lauriente, back in shape

  • Four goals between August and October, and then nothing. Like his team, which had started the championship very well before experiencing a serious crisis in results, Armand Laurienté had a very prolific start to the season, building on the momentum of the previous year, which had enabled him to reveal in Ligue 1, then experienced a long period of scarcity: no goals or assists between October 17, 2021 and February 6, 2022! A time injured, the attacking midfielder trained at Stade Rennais was also sometimes put on the bench in the middle of winter. His assist on Enzo Le Fée’s goal against Saint-Étienne last weekend (6-2), and above all his very fine goal, on an individual feat, this Sunday for the Lorient equalizer (61 ‘), ultimately insufficient.
