Lille vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 22nd November 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
The Sunday evening game will see Lille who have impressed so far against the newly promoted Lorient who have caused some upsets.
Lille come into this game in 2nd place and there is no chance of going top this weekend as they are 5 points behind league leaders PSG. Whilst Lille have been solid they have also gone their last three games without a win.
That trend will be worrying for the home side after such a good start. At home Lille are unbeaten though and have the 3rd best home record in the league. They have also only conceded 2 goals so far and have a mean defence set up in their own stadium.
Lorient have had some good results but have been quite naive at the back and their inexperience in the top flight is telling already. They are down in 17th place and only goal difference is keeping them from being in the relegation zone.
It’s no wins in their last three games and Lorient have lost 60% of their matches so far. Away from home Lorient have lost 3 games from five but the good news is that they are unbeaten in their last two trips.
Lille vs Lorient: Head to Head
The clubs last played here in 2017 when Lorient won 1-0.
Lorient have won the last 2 meetings between the teams.
There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Lille vs Lorient: Prediction
Lille are a very good side who are going through a bad moment, but we think the international break has come at the right time for the club and that they will not continue their poor form anyway.
The added bonus for Lille is being at home and they have been strong here this season. There is a pressure to keep on winning and staying with PSG and Lyon will be right on their tails too.
Lille really have no excuse and should be able to earn all three points against Lorient and we will back them to be winning at half time and also full time to get more value from the price.
