Nancy vs Lorient Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nancy and Lorient will be facing each other at the Stade Marcel-Picot on Saturday evening, with both teams looking to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track. Nancy were beaten 1-2 at home by Lille last weekend despite the fact that they had the lead at halftime following Issiar Dia’s goal just after the half-hour mark. Meanwhile, Lorient lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, with their consolation goal being scored by Michael Ciani.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Nancy have enjoyed an excellent run of form at home between the end of October 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but they are now on a four-game winless streak. On the contrary, Lorient have only won two of their 17 competitive away fixtures this season. Nancy are favourites to win here due to their home advantage and because they hold an impressive head-to-head home record over Lorient, losing just two of their 13 home meetings. It’s hard to predict the outcome of this tie, but I’m expecting a low-scoring match, as both sides have struggled to find the back of the net throughout this campaign.

Nancy Preview

Nancy are in shocking form at the moment in time as they enter the fray on the back of a seven-game winless streak in Ligue 1, losing six and drawing once in the process. Last time out, Nancy lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Lille despite the fact that they had the lead at halftime. Scoring goals has been Nancy’s biggest problem throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they hold the worst attacking record in the division, scoring just 19 goals in 29 league outings. Nancy's first-half goal against Lille last weekend was their sole goal in their last seven games in Ligue 1. Issiar Dia has been Nancy’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as the 29-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals in his 23 league appearances. On home soil, Nancy are currently winless in four league outings, but prior to this negative run, they were on a six-game winning streak across all competitions. Furthermore, Nancy are undefeated in their last six home meetings with Lorient in Ligue 1, winning four and drawing two in this term. Despite their abysmal run of form, Nancy still sit in 18th spot in the standings tied on 28 points with the first team above the drop zone, Dijon.

Lorient Preview

Lorient, on the other hand, are winless in their last seven games across all competitions, registering six defeats and one draw in the process. They have suffered defeats in each of their last six competitive fixtures, including a 2-1 loss at Bordeaux in the Coupe de France towards the end of February. Lorient are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just 22 points to their name after 29 rounds, already seven points behind safety. They have scored more goals than their Saturday’s opponents, but their back line record has been awful throughout this Ligue 1 campaign. Lorient have conceded 59 goals in 29 league outings this season, which is the worst defensive record in the division. Their away form has also been a problem as Lorient have only collected five points from their 14 league trips so far this season. They are currently on a three-game losing streak in all competitions on the road, scoring just once in this term. In addition, Lorient are winless in their last six visits to the Stade Marcel-Picot, losing four and drawing twice in the process. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris have been Lorient’s most prolific players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 15 goals and four assists between them.
