Result: Valenciennes smash Lorient for six

Anthony Le Tallec and Vincent Aboubakar score twice each to inspire Valenciennes to a 6-1 comeback victory over Lorient at home.

Valenciennes have come from behind to defeat Lorient 6-1 at home in Ligue 1.

The visitors were the first to get off the mark, as Benjamin Corgnet headed home Alain Traore's delivery in the seventh minute.

However, that lead lasted for just four minutes as Carlos Sanchez equalised with a headed goal from close range.

It became 2-1 to Valenciennes in the 14th minute when Anthony Le Tallec shot home from the centre of the Lorient penalty box with his left foot.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors minutes later when Arnaud Le Lan was dismissed for a bad challenge.

That gifted the initiative to Valenciennes, who virtually wrapped up the points seven minutes into the second half, Gael Danic successfully converting a penalty conceded by Wesley Lautoa.

Lorient were reduced to nine men in the 76th minute when Innocent Emeghara was sent off and conceded thrice in the match thereafter.

Vincent Aboubakar was sent through by Le Tallec for his first goal on 81 minutes before Le Tallec added his second six minutes later.

Aboubakar rounded up proceedings at Stade du Hainaut in the final minute of normal time with his second goal of the evening.
