Result: Lorient and Nice play out goalless draw in Ligue 1

Lorient and Nice play out a tame goalless draw in Ligue 1 on Saturday night, with Alexy Bosetti wasting a potentially telling late chance for the away side.

Lorient and Nice have played out the only goalless game in Ligue 1 this evening, with both sides wasting good chances to win the game.

Commanding striker Vincent Aboubakar went close for Lorient in the opening minutes as he saw his shot flash just wide of goal.

Yann Jouffre was next to threaten for the hosts when he shot from outside of the box, but Nice goalkeeper Mouez Hassan was equal to it.

On a relatively quiet night for Nice, perhaps their best chance came in the second half, as Valentin Eysseric struck a shot from distance that crept past Benjamin Lecomte's post.

Lorient looked more likely to claim all three points as the teams headed towards a tight finish, with Aboubakar going close again with a smart shot from the centre of the box.

Alexy Bosetti might have snatched a late victory for Nice, only to drag a good chance wide of the post.
