The Ligue 1 defense which has conceded the most goals since the start of the season, in great difficulty facing the Lens attacks throughout the match, was able to resist until the end of the match. Souleymane Toure, Montassar Talbi and Formose Mendy fought like lions to counter the northern offensives, very often led by the very leggy Florian Sotoca and Massadio Haidara. Several times on the verge of breaking but solid and very well regrouped, the Breton backs pulled together to pick up a point this Saturday at home.
The Lorient goalkeeper was perfect in each of his interventions and knew how to keep his clean sheet this Saturday. Mvogo made seven saves on… seven shots. 100% success. FC Lorient can thank him.
The Lensois striker was in all the northern good moves this Saturday. The Frenchman brought constant danger to the Breton defense, combining well with his comrades Fulgini and Guilavogui. The No.7 of RC Lens shot twice on goal, including a monumental strike in the 47th minute of play from 30 meters, which finally crashed into Mvogo's crossbar. Not rewarded.
Like Sotoca, who, despite these good inspirations, did not manage to score a single shot in this meeting, the Lens offensives were cruelly lacking in realism. Fulgini and Guilavogui also had chances, scoring three shots between them, but each time came up short against Mvogo.
The weather conditions clearly did not help the 22 actors this Saturday. The gusts of wind increased shortly before the end of the match and the rain continued to fall harder and harder as the minutes passed in Lorient. The players returned to the locker room, soaked, after the match. Welcome to Brittany.
