Lorient vs Nantes Prediction & Match Preview

Lorient vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th November 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustair (Lorient).

Lorient come into this game in 16th place and some of their recent results have been encouraging but their main problem has been inconsistency.

In their last game they drew with Dijon which was not seen as a good result but they are trying to pick up the points and the newly promoted sides objective has to be survival and nothing else this season.

At home Lorient have only won 1 game from the 4 played and that was their first match when they beat Strasbourg, they haven’t won at home for 3 games in a row with their last match here finishing in a 1-0 loss against Marseille.

Nantes have nose dived into 17th place and have lost 3 of their last four games. Last weekend they were defeated 3-0 at home to PSG but that was probably expected. On the road though they are yet to win and from a possible 12 points they have won only 1, that is the worry for the club.

Lorient vs Nantes: Head to Head

  • Nantes have won the last 3 league meetings against Lorient.
  • There is a 60% chance of seeing both teams to score.
  • Lorient haven’t beaten Nantes when at home since 2013.

Lorient vs Nantes: Prediction

This could be Nantes chance to start their recovery but in truth there isn’t much between the clubs. Nantes need to impose the fact that they have been a staple Ligue 1 team and show Lorient what it takes to survive in Ligue 1.

But Nantes are an inconsistent team and in fact we have two clubs here who share the same traits.

We don’t expect to see many goals and under 2.5 could be the way to here. Because Lorient have struggled in the past games with Nantes and have a poor record at home we will back the away side to win but stakes should be kept to a minimum in match that can swing both ways fairly easily.

Lorient vs Nantes: Bet Tips:

  • Nantes to beat Lorient at 3.00 (2/1)
  • Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13).
