Brest fell to a home defeat at the hands of FC Lorient at the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Sunday. Brest arrived with the intention of improving their league position following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Auxerre in their previous game. Lorient were coming from consecutive wins against Lille and Auxerre. Brest and Lorient sit 20th, (6 points) and 2nd, (25 points), spots respectively, after 10 matches.

The Pirates started the match strongly, when Romain Del Castillo gave them the lead on the 17 minute mark. However, their lead was short-lived, as Terem Moffi equalised for The Merlucciidaes, 24 minutes in, ending the first half 1-1.

Lorient started the second half with an intensified spirit, when Terem Moffi found the net once more, 53 minutes in. The match ended with a 2-1 victory for the visitors.

Substitutions for Brest included Hugo Magnetti, Mathias Pereira Lage, Axel Camblan, Karamoko Dembele and Jean-Kevin Duverne for Mahdi Camara, Franck Honorat, Islam Slimani, Romain Del Castillo and Noah Fadiga, respectively. Lorient brought on Quentin Boisgard, Chrislain Matsima, Ibrahima Kone, Bonke Innocent and Sirine Ckene Doucoure for Laurent Abergel, Stephane Diarra, Yoann Cathline, Julien Ponceau and Terem Moffi.
