Lorient vs Toulouse Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lorient and Toulouse will square off at the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir on Wednesday evening, with both teams looking to build on their recent victories in Ligue 1. Lorient managed a hard-fought 0-1 victory on the road at Lille at the weekend, with Jeremie Aliadiere scoring the winner in the first minutes of the second half for Bernard Casoni’s side. On the other hand, Lorient picked up an impressive 4-0 home win over Angers thanks to goals from Andy Delort, Martin Braithwaite, Oscar Trejo and Ola Toivonen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Lorient Preview

Lorient managed a 2-3 victory in extra-time on the road at Chateauroux in the Coupe de France a week ago and followed this up with another 0-1 narrow victory at Lille in Ligue 1 at the weekend. Their recent form has been decent, as Bernard Casoni’s men have won four and lost two of their last six games across all competitions. They still sit at bottom place of the league table, but they are now just three points behind safety. Lorient managed a decent tally of 26 goals so far this season, but their defence has definitely been the main reason for their poor performances throughout the season. They have conceded 46 goals in 23 rounds so far this season, which is the worst defensive record in the division. On home soil, Lorient were on a four-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their 2-3 defeat against Dijon in their most recent home league fixture. The most interesting fact is that Lorient have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven home fixtures in all competitions. The bad news is that Lorient are winless in their last three home meetings with Toulouse in Ligue 1, losing two and drawing once in the process. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris are the players to watch here, as the pair bagged 14 goals and 3 assists between them.

Toulouse Preview

Meanwhile, Toulouse have finally returned to winning ways, and they did in style, registering an impressive 4-0 home victory over Angers at the weekend. Prior to this win, Toulouse were on a seven-game winless streak across all competitions, losing four and drawing three in this term. It has to be said that Toulouse failed to find the back of the net in their four Ligue 1 games prior to their recent victory over Angers. The win lifts Toulouse in 10th position in the league table with 29 points under their belts, eight points off the top four. The bad news is that Toulouse aren’t regarded as good travellers, as they have only won once in their last ten away games in all competitions and are currently on an eight-game winless streak. Furthermore, Toulouse have only scored two goals in their last eight away fixtures in all competitions. Head-to-head, Toulouse are unbeaten in the last two meetings with Lorient in Ligue 1, which includes a 3-2 home win in the reverse fixture. Martin Braithwaite has been Toulouse’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 8 goals and 3 assists in his 20 league appearances.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lorient should be able to grab all three points in this one, despite the fact that they are winless in the last three home meetings with Toulouse. Lorient looked very strong in front of their fans over the past few months, winning four of their last five home games in all competitions. In addition, I’m backing Lorient to score a couple of goals in this one, as they have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven home games in all competitions.
