Lorient’s 3-2 win over Dijon on Wednesday, was hard fought at the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir. Lorient were looking to get back winning ways, following a previous defeat to FC Girondins de Bordeaux whilst Dijon FCO secured a point against RC Strasbourg in their previous match. After today’s result, both teams are on 15 points and occupy 18th and 18th places respectively after 20 matches.

Lorient started the game well, following a goal from Trevoh Chalobah, 30 minutes in. However, their lead was short lived with equalizer from a goal from Bruno Ecuele in the 39th minute brought Dijon FCO level. Later, Dijon FCO scored again and turned the match thanks to a goal from Mama Balde in the 42nd minute just before half-time, which saw the first half end 2-1.

Lorient continued to apply pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with a goal from Terem Moffi in the 58th minute. Later, Lorient scored again and reestablished their lead thanks to a calamitous own goal from Anthony Racioppi in the 90th minute just before the final whistle. The game ended with a 3-2 victory for Lorient.
