Lorient vs Caen Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lorient will be aiming to build on their recent victory in Ligue 1 when they welcome Caen at the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir on Sunday afternoon. Lorient fought back from two-goal down to secure an impressive 2-3 victory at Nancy last time out thanks to three second-half goals from Benjamin Moukandjo, Wesley Lautoa and Arnold Mvuemba. On the contrary, Caen lost 0-3 at home at the hands of Monaco despite the fact they had a better ball possession than the visitors. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as conceded bagged 112 goals between them so far this season. Both are fighting for survival in this Ligue 1 campaign, so I’m expecting an entertaining affair with both getting on the scoresheet.

Lorient Preview

Lorient finally returned to winning ways prior to the International break and they did it in a good fashion, as they fought back from two goals down to earn a 2-3 victory at Nancy. Prior to this win, Lorient were on a seven-game winless streak across all competitions, including a 2-1 defeat against Bordeaux in the Coupe de France towards the end of February. Despite their recent victory, Lorient still sit on the bottom of the Ligue 1 table tied on 25 points with the 19th-placed SC Bastia, three points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Lorient’s main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 61 goals in 30 rounds. At the other end of the field, Lorient managed a decent tally of 32 goals this season, which is one of the best-attacking records in the bottom half. Benjamin Moukandjo is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with nine goals under his belt, while Majeed Waris has helped the team with seven goals and five assists in his 27 league appearances. On home soil, Lorient are winless in their last five home games in Ligue 1, conceding at least two goals in three of these. The good news is that Lorient are undefeated in their last four home meetings with Caen across all competitions, conceding just one goal in this term.

Caen Preview

Caen have also struggled for fluency recently, having won just three of their last ten games across all competitions. Caen enter the fray on the back of a three-game winless streak, which includes a heavy 0-3 home defeat at the hands of Monaco prior to the International break. The most worrying fact is that Caen have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three league outings. Actually, Caen have one of the leakiest defences in the division with 51 goals conceded in 30 league games. Caen currently stand in 16th spot in the league table with 32 points under their belts after 30 rounds, just four points clear of the bottom three. Away from home, Caen have only lost one of their last four away league games and kept a clean sheet in two of these. In addition, Caen should feel confident ahead of this clash as they did well to beat Lorient 3-2 at home in the reverse fixture. The only bad news is that Caen are winless in their last four visits to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir, scoring just one goal in the process. A player to watch for Caen is Ivan Santini, as the 27-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 12 goals in his 27 league appearances.
