Already under the spell of their new coach Régis Le Bris, the Lorient supporters were now able to cheer on his nephew, Théo Le Bris, who scored the winning goal in the final minutes.

In a lively match despite gusts of Breton drizzle, Lorient had quickly taken the advantage on an error by Lucas Chevalier, who let a shot from Stéphane Diarra bounce off Bafodé Diakité (1-0, 9th).

The Lille then started intense pressing, and created many chances, strong in duels and in sprints, but they stumbled for a long time on a fierce defense and lacked success, especially since Yvon Mvogo did not let nothing pass.

The exclusion of Dango Ouattara for a second hourly warning further increased the pressure in the Lorient camp and Lille finally found the fault: launched in depth by Adam Ounas, Jonathan Bamba served Jonathan David, who concluded alone in front of goal (1-1, 78th).

Motivated even more, the Lille residents continued to push, but were surprised behind their backs, when Le Bris, whom his "


" had brought in in the 69th minute (in place of Stéphane Diarra), found himself on the left when landing a long cross.

With skill, the nephew of the coach, one of the revelations of Lorient at the start of the season, got rid of his defender to strike between the legs of the goalkeeper and score his first goal in the elite (87th).


It's no coincidence that we scored this goal, we made a lot of effort

", concluded the hero at the microphone of Prime Video, welcoming "

the victory of a whole team, very connected guys, with strong ties between us


And even family ties.
