Lorient vs Bordeaux Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Bordeaux will be aiming to seal their place in next season’s Europa League group stage when they travel to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir to take on Lorient. Lorient were beaten 2-0 by SC Bastia last time out, in a game in which they delivered just one shot on target. On the other hand, Bordeaux were held to a 1-1 home draw by Marseille last time out at the weekend, although Diego Rolan gave them the lead after just two minutes since the first whistle. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams are in dire need of three points here, but for different reasons. Lorient need to win in order to avoid relegation while Bordeaux need a victory and Marseille to lose against Bastia if they are to play in the Europa League next season. I’m expecting a tight and well-contested game with at least three goals scored.

Lorient Preview

Lorient suffered a 2-0 defeat at Bastia in their relegation decider last weekend, and they are now in a very dangerous situation. They sit in 18th, which is the relegation play-off spot, with 35 points under their belts, just one point behind safety. Lorient can avoid this by winning here and if the other results go their way. Lorient managed a decent tally of 43 goals in 37 rounds this season, but they haven’t been that well-organized at the other end of the field. They have conceded 69 goals this term, which is the second worst defensive record in the division. Furthermore, Lorient are the 4th worst home team in the league, collecting just 24 points from their 18 home league fixtures. Although, they looked decent in front of their own fans recently, winning two and drawing once in their last three home games in Ligue 1. Furthermore, Lorient are unbeaten in their last three home meetings with Bordeaux in Ligue 1, scoring three goals in two of these. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris are the players to watch for Lorient, as the pair bagged 22 goals and six assists between them.

Lorient Team News

Benjamin Moukandjo and Pierre-Yves Hamel are both doubts, but Sylvain Marveaux is still out through a hamstring injury.

Bordeaux Preview

On the contrary, Lorient have enjoyed a solid run recently as they enter the fray on the back of a six-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1. They looked pretty good at the back during this run, conceding just three goals in the process. Les Girondins currently sit in 6th in the Ligue 1 table, just one point of the 5th-placed Marseille. This means that they need to win here and Marseille to lose against SC Bastia if they are to play in the Europa League next season. Bordeaux’s decent campaign was largely based on their solid defence, as they have one of the meanest defences in the division with just 42 goals conceded in 37 league outings. Furthermore, Bordeaux have been a strong side on the road throughout the season, losing just five of their 18 league trips. Actually, they have only lost four of their last 15 games across all competitions, and are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak. In addition, Bordeaux have won their last five meetings with Lorient in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Diego Rolan is Bordeaux’s top scorer with just nine goals under his belt, but Malcom has also helped the team with seven goals and three assists.

Bordeaux Team News

Thomas Toure and Jeremy Menez are both doubts ahead of this trip.
