- 1 Wissa the strong man of FC Lorient
- 2 Two-point maintenance?
- 3 unlucky Angers
Very active in the attack of FC Lorient recently, Yoane Wissa appears as the strong man of the Merlus. With two goals and three assists in the last three games, he is with Moffi, the Lorient’s most prolific striker with 9 goals in Ligue 1 this season.
Against Angers, he was again dangerous, especially at the end of the first half by trying to rush into the opponent’s area (38 ‘), then served by Moffi (42’) but countered by the Angevine defense . He delivers FC Lorient by converting the penalty to the 44 ‘.
With this new victory, the 7th at home since the return phase, FC Lorient is once again taking a big step towards maintaining and the 40 points set by coach Christophe Pelissier. With 4 points ahead of FC Nantes (34) who beat Brest (1-4) and 6 over Nîmes following their draw at home against Reims (2-2), Lorient is only one point behind Bordeaux and Saint-Étienne (39). The Lorientais are therefore only one victory away from their goal this season.
The Angevins have accumulated hard knocks this afternoon on the lawn of Moustoir. From the quarter of an hour of play, Stéphane Moulin’s men found themselves outnumbered with the exit of Lassana Coulibaly (red card) 7th after a very dangerous tackle on Laurent Abergel.
Fate then fell on SCO Angers who lost their captain, Ismaël Traoré, to an injury (knee), replaced by the former Lorientais Jimmy Cabot and conceded a penalty just before half-time, for a hand in the surface of Manceaux. A penalty converted by Yoane Wissa (44 ‘). The goal of Fabien Lemoine (48 ‘), his first this season, as soon as the restart sank the Angevins.
