His absence was felt at Lorient when he was suspended, but Mario Lemina's return got Le Gym back to winning ways at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. Forming an effective pairing with Khephren Thuram, the defensive midfielder's reading of the game and industry were crucial.

Going forward, he joined Melvin Bard with the most passes attempted (36), and he completed the most (26).
Just behind Lemina comes Delort, who scored his second goal for the club (and has two assists to boot).

Calvin Stengs completes the podium after also finding the net, the Dutch international scoring his first goal for the club early in the second half (54').
Sent clear by Thuram, he beat Stefan Bajic with a measured left-foot shot.
