Ligue 1, 7th day: Lorient beats Nantes (3-2) and keeps in touch with PSG and OM, Nice, Angers and Toulouse win

Lorient-Nantes: 3-2

Lorient continues to seduce. A few days after their success against Lyon (3-1), Les Merlus signed a new victory, the fifth of the season, by winning on their lawn against FC Nantes. If the Canaries opened the scoring thanks to Ignatius Ganago (0-1, 13th), the players of Régis Le Bris reversed the situation with achievements from Dango Ouattara (1-1, 19th), Yoann Cathline (2-1, 60th) and Ibrahima Koné (3-1, 74th). The goal of Moses Simon in the 85th for the FCN did not change anything. With 16 points in 7 days, Lorient finds itself fourth while Nantes is 15th with only one victory on the clock…

Le Bris, like a hake in the water


What we remember: Confirmation of the excellent start to the Hake season.

Angers-Montpellier: 2-1

That’s it, Angers has unlocked its counter. The SCO won its first success of the season. After four setbacks in a row, the Angevin club found the way forward to finally launch its 2022-2023 exercise thanks to Adrien Hunou (9th) and Sofiane Boufal (69th sp). Beaten in Lille last weekend, Montpellier, which had nevertheless opened the scoring thanks to Arnaud Nordin (0-1, 7th), lost for the second time in a row and still has not recorded a single draw this season.

What we remember: Angers will be able to consider the rest of the season more calmly.

Ajaccio-Nice: 0-1

Second victory away from its bases for the Gym, a laborious winner from Ajaccio. Lucien Favre’s proteges waited a long time before finding the fault. It took an inspiration from Andy Delort to unblock the situation, scorer on a splendid return from the right after a control of the chest (65th). The Corsican goalkeeper, Benjamin Leroy, could not do anything, as on these attempts by rookies Ross Barkley (71st) and Nicolas Pépé (87th), each time returned by the post. The dynamic is far from linear for the Aiglons, but they give themselves some air in the standings (12th), unlike their opponent of the day, stuck in last place (20th), with still only one small point in the counter.

What we remember: Despite his desire, Ajaccio does not succeed in Ligue 1.

Toulouse-Reims: 1-0

At the edge of the red zone before facing Stade de Reims (16th), Toulouse ended a series of three consecutive defeats and pocketed a second success this season, the first at home. The “Pitchouns” won by the smallest of margins in front of the Rémois thanks to the young Zakaria Aboukhlal (22), author of his second pawn of the season (31st) on a school finish (a cross shot from the left in the small opposite net). To make matters worse for Oscar Garcia’s men, Alexis Flips saw red on the hour mark (61st), after a failed intervention on the striker of the day in front of his own area as the last defender. Téfécé goes back to 10th place, six positions ahead of Reims (16th).

What we remember: Toulouse finds colors at home.
