France Ligue 1 - Lille vs Lorient Preview

Analysis:

Lille will face Lorient at The Darlington Arena.

Lille
Lille go into this match following on from a 1-1 Ligue 1 drawn result vs Marseille. It has been all too rare in recent games that Lille have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Lille have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 7 goals along the way.


Lorient
Previously, FC Lorient drew 0-0 in the Ligue 1 match with Angers SCO. Over the course of 5 of the past 6 clashes featuring FC Lorient, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and opposing sides. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell is a meagre 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by Les Merlus being 0.33. With no two games being the same, time will tell whether that pattern might persist here in this match or not.

Verdict:
Lorient, the only team not to have won away from home, they should lacked confidence in this game. The 1X2 first odds is 1.50-4.20-6.50, which means support the home team. Lille should win this game.
