Lorient vs Brest Prediction

In Ligue 2, Lorient had their previous encounter with Valenciennes on the road which ended in a 3-0 defeat for the former. Meanwhile, Brest will be visiting with a 4-0 defeat on the road against Montpellier in their previous league clash.

At home, Lorient has been strong. The host had won four of their last five home matches in major competitions. On the other hand, Brest is on a four-game consecutive losing run in their respective league away fixtures.

Also, the visitor has recorded only one win in their last ten away games. Besides that, Lorient has only three losses in their last ten overall fixtures. Meanwhile, Brest has only two wins in their recent ten fixtures in major contests.

Since Lorient is playing at home, they will have the home ground advantage. Even though the host is playing in Ligue 2, they will be a tough opponent for Ligue 1 contingents.

Also, since Lorient has a good form at home, the host has a better chance in the game. In addition to that, Brent has been taking a dip in form at their away fixtures.

Hence, we can expect Lorient to advance to the next round of the tournament as they have more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes.
