Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba Dieng did not have a dream start in his new colors with his club FC Lorient, which lost this Wednesday in the league against Reims (4-2). The teammates of the new Hake striker were knocked down by the Reims.
Lorient lost top scorer Terem Moffi during the winter transfer window and it still shows. The Merlus, who are coming out of an important victory last Friday against Rennes, bowed down against the Stade de Reims this Wednesday on the lawn of Auguste-Delaune on the sidelines of the 21st day.
The teammates of Bamba Dieng who started on the bench had nevertheless taken the lead thanks to Enzo Le Fée (10e) and Ibrahima Koné (35e) who deceive the vigilance of the Franco-Senegalese porter Yehvann Diouf. But Lorient will show a first sign of weakness by conceding a penalty just before halftime. Folarin Balogun will take the opportunity to reduce the score before the break (1-2).
So the second half will be a whole different game. Reims will simply overthrow Lorient. First Doumbia sets the record straight five minutes after the resumption of the second period before giving way to the show Balogun who will sign a double in three minutes (61e and 64e) to restore the advantage to Reims (4-2). Came in the wake, Cheikh Bamba Dieng could not do anything to avoid the defeat of his people who bowed heavily against Reims.
