Matchday 22 in Ligue 1 showed how tight the French top flight can be this season. None is dominating and the title race is even more intense. Mauricio Pocchettino had to taste his first defeat in French soil when they were travelling to Lorient, the team at the bottom three of the table. They lost 2-3 against the inferior but motivated home side. Lorient’s skipper Laurent Abergel opened the scoring but Neymar’s double penalty managed to bounce Le Parisien back. However, the last ten minutes of the game was the true nightmare for Pocchetino’s men. The home side managed to respond twice by Youane Wissa on the 80th minute and Terem Moffi on the 91st minute. Lorient’s historic moment was captured last weekend at last. Meanwhile, Lyon and Lille did not waste the opportunity to climb back to the top of the table. Les Gones thumped Bordeaux 2-1 by Karl Toko Ekambi’s strike and Leo Dubois’s stunner though Samuel Kalu was able to find the equaliser beforehand, whereas Lille leads the table after a narrow 1-0 win over Dijon through Yusug Yazici’s goal.
