On Sunday at Stade Francis-Le Ble, Lorient, which is in excellent form, should be able to give Brest a lot of trouble.
Brest are hoping for a better outcome after a 1-1 draw with Auxerre in the previous match. With the exception of one game, they have a winless record of 100% this season. Their place in the rankings was impacted by such a terrible stretch. At the moment, they are third from the bottom.
Lorient have a string of unblemished victories to start this season. Except for a loss against Lens, they have largely maintained their undefeated streak for winning last five league games. The team has scored a total of 12 goals over that span. Their offensive line breached in four of the five victories.
Lorient have their sights set firmly on a spot in Europe, so they will be eager to maintain this excellent form for as long as possible. Brest shouldn't pose much of a challenge for Lorient, who will probably keep up their winning streak this weekend with another victory away from home.
