Lille to End Lorient’s Fine Form
Lorient claimed a 2-2 draw at Monaco last time out and remain unbeaten in their last five league games, a run that has pushed the relegation battlers out of the drop zone. Lille played out a goalless draw with Brest last weekend and then lost 2-1 at home to Ajax in the Europa League, so the aim on Sunday is to return to winning ways.
Lille smashed Lorient 4-0 when the pair met for their reverse league fixture in November and have won three of the duo’s last five meetings in Ligue 1. each of those Lille victories were accompanied by a clean sheet and the visitors look strong in defence right now, which could lead to another win-to-nil on Sunday.
Lille have won four of their last six matches and have kept five clean sheets during that period, so the Lorient attackers are going to have to be at their very best to penetrate the visitor’s defence this weekend.
We’re predicting a win for Lille on Sunday and have backed a final scoreline of 2-0. Lorient have made a habit of conceding exactly two goals in recent matches, with three of their last five league games seeing the bottom half of the table side let in two goals.
