Lorient – Lille Predictions and PREVIEW
- The international break perhaps couldn’t have come at a worse time for Lorient, who were in the midst of their best ever start to a top-flight campaign (W6, D1, L1) after winning each of their last four fixtures. Manager Régis Le Bris refuses to get carried away with his dream debut season though, saying “we are only on the eighth day” after Lorient’s 3-1 win over Auxerre last time out.
- But it is on the seventh day that Lorient have shown real improvement, as after losing their last five Ligue 1 matches played on a Sunday last term, they’re currently undefeated in all five this season (W4, D1). Three straight wins at the Stade du Moustoir so far this campaign should add to their already oozing confidence, as Lorient could now open a Ligue 1 season with four consecutive home wins for the very first time.
- Lille find themselves six points off their hosts after alternating wins and losses over their last six matches (W3, L3), ending on a positive note with a 2-1 win over Toulouse in their last outing. Reverting once again to a loss would harm Lille’s hopes of getting back into European contention, while adding to their tally of nine Ligue 1 losses this calendar year already, their most since 2018.
- It seems victory or defeat are the Mastiffs only option here, as none of the last 15 H2Hs have also ended in stalemate. Lille have enjoyed most of the success though (W10), and may fancy their chances of adding to that tally if they can rediscover the form which saw them remain unbeaten in their first three matches on the road this season (W2, D1), until a 2-1 loss to Marseille in their last away outing.
- Players to watch: Lorient’s Terem Moffi scored the decisive goal in this fixture last season, and has netted the game winner in three of his last four goalscoring outings, while Lille’s Jonathan David has scored four of his five domestic goals this season before half-time.
- Hot streak: Lille’s last 11 Ligue 1 matches have seen both teams score.
