FC Lorient won against Stade Brestois this Sunday, on the 31st day of Ligue 1 (1-0). A precious success in the race to maintain that the Hake celebrated by climbing in one of the stands of the Moustoir, where the Breton ultras had deployed a great tifo.
A derby like no other. There was much more than a regional rivalry at stake this Sunday at the Moustoir. In difficulty in the league, Lorient and Brest engaged in a decisive duel in the race to maintain. And it is the Hakes who emerged victorious from this poster counting for the 31st day of Ligue 1 (1-0).
Christophe Pélissier’s players made the difference thanks to a great foray from Laurent Abergel, just before the break. The 28-year-old midfielder relied on Terem Moffi to score from close range (45th). And the FCL would have even weighed down the score more if Armand Laurienté had not touched the post (73rd).
A big tifo in South Park mode
Thanks to this success, Lorient is giving himself a little air at the bottom of the table. Les Merlus are 17th, 3 points behind Brest, who finished ten after the exclusion of Haris Belkebla in added time. To celebrate this good result, some players decided to go up to the stands at the end of the match.
Yoan Wissa, Andreaw Gravillon or Trevoh Chalobah stepped over the billboards to climb into the southern kop of Moustoir. The usual stronghold of “Merlus Ultras 1995”, who had decorated their turn with a tifo showing characters from the cartoon “South Park”.
Under the large colored tarpaulin, accompanied by the message “Crush them”, the Lorient people jumped and sang for several minutes. Under the amused eyes of their partners who remained on the lawn below. “Can’t wait for your return @ KopSudFCL1926 because we want to keep these guys on the lawn,” the club’s Twitter humorously concluded, posting a photo of the players in the stands.
