Meanwhile, Lorient won 1-0 at home over Caen, with Benjamin Moukandjo scoring the winner just before the half-hour mark.

Lyon Preview

Lyon have finally returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 thanks to a comfortable 0-3 victory on the road at Metz. They still sit in 4th spot in the Ligue 1 table with 54 points under their belts after 31 rounds, already 13 points of the third-placed Nice. Les Gones looked very good in front of goal so far this season, as they are the division’s second topscorers with 64 goals in 31 league games. Alexandre Lacazette has enjoyed an excellent Ligue 1 campaign, as he is the division’s second topscorer with 24 goals in his 26 league appearances. Corentin Tolisso and Mathieu Valbuena have also been in fine shape throughout this campaign, as the pair bagged 14 goals and eight assists between them. On home soil, Lyon have won nine of their last ten home fixtures across all competitions, and are currently on a six-game winning streak. The most impressive fact is that Lyon have scored at least four goals in each of their last six home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Lyon have won eight of their twelve home meetings with Lorient in Ligue 1. Head-to-head, Lyon were on a four-game unbeaten run against Lorient in Ligue 1 prior to their 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture.

Lorient Preview

After a seven-game winless streak across all competitions between the beginning of February to the middle of March, Lorient bounced back with two narrow victories over Nancy and Caen. Despite their recent good run of form, Lorient are still second from the bottom in the Ligue 1 table tied on 28 points with the 18th-placed Nancy, just one point behind safety. Lorient’s main reason for their struggle throughout this Ligue 1 campaign has been their sloppy defence, as they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 61 goals conceded in 31 rounds. They also struggled at the other end of the pitch, as they only managed 33 goals in 31 league games. Despite this poor record, Benjamin Moukandjo has enjoyed an excellent Ligue 1 campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals in his 21 league appearances. Away from home, Lorient were on a three-game losing streak across all competitions prior to their 2-3 win at Nancy in their most recent league trip. Lorient should feel confident ahead of this clash, as they did well to beat Lyon 1-0 in the reverse fixture. The bad news is that Lorient have only won once in their 13 visits to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
