Lille vs Lorient Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lille will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to five games when they welcome Lorient at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday evening. Lille picked up a hard-fought 1-2  victory on the road at Lyon last weekend, with Yassine Benzia scoring a brace for Patrick Collot’s men. On the other hand, Lorient threw away a one-goal lead to succumb to a 2-3 home defeat against Dijon. Sylvain Marveaux and Majeed Waris scored two second-half goals for Lille, but this wasn’t enough to secure a positive result as they conceded another goal in the stoppage time. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Lille Preview

It seems that Lille have finally found some consistency over the past few weeks, after a terrible start to their 2016/2017 competitive season. Les Dogues have only lost two of their twelve games across all competitions, and enter the fray on the back of a six-game unbeaten run. Lille managed a crucial 1-2 victory on the road at Lyon last time out in Ligue 1 and followed this up with another narrow 1-0 win over Nantes in their midweek Coupe de France tie. The main reason for Lille’s recent good form has been their solid defence, having conceded just 4 goals in their last six games across all competitions. Regarding their Ligue 1 campaign, Lille find themselves in 11th position tied on 26 points with Nantes and Toulouse. Lille can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last six home fixtures in all competitions, winning four and drawing two in the process. Furthermore, Lille are unbeaten in the last seven home meetings in all competitions, winning six and drawing once in this term. Nicolas De Preville and Eder have been Lille’s most in-form players so far this season, as the pair have bagged 8 goals and 4 assists between them.

Lorient Preview

On the flip side, Lorient have suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Monaco and Dijon in their last two league fixtures but bounced back with a 2-3 victory in extra-time over Chateauroux in Coupe de France in midweek. Lorient’s Ligue 1 campaign has been awful, but they still have chances to get themselves out of this mess. Lorient are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just 18 points to their name after 22 rounds, just four points behind safety. Lorient have the worst defence in the division, conceding 46 goals in 22 league fixtures. Their away form has also been a problem, as Lorient are the worst away side in the division with just two points under their belts from their eleven league trips so far this season. The most worrying fact is that Lorient have conceded at least two goals in each of their last seven away games across all competitions. Furthermore, Lorient are winless in their last seven visits to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, scoring just four goals in the process. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris have been Lorient’s most dangerous players throughout the season, having scored seven goals each so far.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lille proved to be a tough nut to crack on home soil over the past three months, and they also hold a near perfect head-to-head home record over Lorient. I’m backing Lille to grab all three points in this one, as Lorient are the worst away side in the division, picking up just two points from their eleven league trips so far this season.
