Lorient vs Marseille Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lorient and Marseille will be facing each other at the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Lorient were beaten 1-0 on the road at Rennes last time out, with Bernard Casoni’s men conceding an early goal. Meanwhile, Marseille were thrashed 1-5 at home by Paris Saint-Germain last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Rod Fanni. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although Marseille have enjoyed a much better campaign than Lorient this season, the hosts have been a tough nut to crack in front of their own fans. I’m expecting a close game, but I’m backing both teams to get on the scoresheet as four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen goals at both ends of the field.

Both teams to score - Yes at 8/13

Lorient Preview

Lorient are on a shocking run of form which has seen them winning just two of their last nine games across all competitions over the past month. They are currently on a five-game winless streak in all competitions, including a narrow 1-0 loss on the road at Rennes last weekend. Lorient followed this up with another narrow 2-1 defeat on the road at Bordeaux in their midweek Coupe de France tie. They are now out from the Coupe de France, and they should start focusing only on their Ligue 1 campaign. They are rock bottom of the league table with 22 points under their belts after 27 rounds, already six points behind safety. Lorient managed a decent tally of 27 goals throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, but they have been awful at the other end of the field. They have conceded 53 goals in 27 league outings, which is the worst defensive record in the division. On home soil, Lorient were on a four-game winning streak across all competitions between the end of November 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but they have failed to win a single game since then. Lorient are currently on a three-game winless streak in Ligue 1 at home, losing two and drawing once in this term. Furthermore, Lorient are winless in their last four home meetings with Marseille in Ligue 1, scoring just two goals in the process.

Marseille Preview

On the contrary, Marseille were humiliated 1-5 at home by the reigning champions Paris Saint Germain last weekend in Ligue 1, and followed this up with a 3-4 defeat in extra time at the hands of Monaco in their midweek Coupe de France tie. Their recent form has been awful as they have lost four of their last six games across all competitions. Despite this poor run of form, OM still sit in a comfortable 7th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on 39 points with the 6th-placed Saint-Etienne, already seven points off the top four. The most worrying fact is that OM have lost their main striker Bafetimbi Gomis, who got injured in Marseille’s 2-0 home win over Rennes three weeks ago. The former Swansea City forward has played a crucial role in OM’s performances throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 16 goals in his 24 league appearances. Florian Thauvin has also been in fine shape so far this season, helping the team with seven goals and three assists. Marseille aren’t regarded as good travellers as they have only won three of their last ten away games across all competitions. In addition, OM are currently on a three-game losing streak on the road, conceding seven goals in the process.
