Unlike the goals, strong gusts of wind and downpours were very present this Saturday in Lorient. The latter saw Lorientais and Lensois separate in a messy draw (0-0), a result which does not suit anyone.
The Sang et Or can blame themselves for having lacked realism as they dominated the majority of the match. After a sluggish start to the match, the Northerners gained strength physically and technically to corner the Merlus in defense at the end of the first period. At the restart, Franck Haise's players started on the same bases but often came up against Breton goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo, author of a very good performance, and a solid and very well grouped Lorient defense.
The entry of Wahi added danger to the Breton goal but Mvogo was perfect until the end of the match. The Lorientais were far too lax in attack to worry the northern goalkeeper Brice Samba. With this draw, both teams stagnate in the standings. Before its trip to Eindhoven on Wednesday in the Champions League, RC Lens grabs two places and climbs to 8th place, while the Bretons climb to 14th place in Ligue 1.
