The wind blew only on one side in the Breton derby. Brest largely dominated (3-0) a weak team of Lorient Monday night at Stade Francis-Le Blé. Gaëtan Charbonnier, who had not scored in three months, opened the scoring (24th). Jason Berthomier, entered in the first period in the place of his captain Gaëtan Belaud, was the other great architect of the victory. He first scored on a big error recovery of Fabien Lemoine (48th) before recovering a dangerous ball and serve Edouard Butin (87th). The Finishers return two points behind their opponent in the evening and only one from Clermont, the first jumper for the accession in Ligue 1.
Lorient shot only one shot and could have come home with a heavier score if Habib Diallo (16th) and Charbonnier (47th) had not touched the crossbar and the post. The evening will leave traces on Merlus side: Yoane Wissa, for two rather severe yellow cards (39th), and Jimmy Cabot, for an uncontrolled tackle (80th), were expelled.
