The visitors went into the match on the back of three straight wins and took an early lead against their recently promoted hosts with a superbly worked goal which ended with Julien Pansot’s clearance and Ouattara scoring.
Lorient stopped the game before the end of the half. Moffi headed home Montasar Talbi’s cross at the back post to make it 2-0 in the 36th minute, before Le Fie got his name on the scoresheet by reacting quickest to Ouattara’s parried shot to make it 3-0.
Larjan thought he had made it 4-0 shortly after the restart when Ouattara slotted past Castile from close range, but his effort was ruled out for offside.
Asser reduced the arrears when Gauthier Heine followed up Mathias Autre’s deflected shot in the 52nd minute, but failed to capitalize after that.
Moffi could have doubled his tally soon after but shot wide when a goal looked easier, but Lorient were guilty of the same late on, with Nunu da Costa and Lassin Sinajoko both missing great chances in stoppage time.
Lorient now have 19 points in Ligue 1, level with PSG and Marseille, who have a game in hand and could go straight to top spot by the end of the weekend.
