Lorient emerge victorious over Guingamp in seven-goal Ligue 1 thriller

20 February 2016 09:23

Lorient came out on top in a seven-goal thriller with a 4-3 win against Guingamp.

L'EAG raced into a two-goal lead, thanks to a first-half double from Yannis Salibur, before the hosts turned the game on its head.

Firstly, Majeed Waris deflected Jimmy Cabot's first-half effort beyond Jonas Lossl before Benjamin Jeannot levelled at the second attempt on 48 minutes and Waris grabbed his second just sixty seconds later to hand Lorient the lead.

Jimmy Briand restored parity for the visitors, netting from Nicolas Benezet's cutback, but Raphael Guerreiro broke Guingamp hearts in added time when he sealed all three points for Lorient with a perfectly weighted free-kick that left Lossl with little chance.
