Lorient vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 17th January 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustoir (Lorient).
Lorient have lost 4 from their last five games and have fallen to 19th and the reality of just how hard Ligue 1 football is seems to be sinking in. The newly promoted team could be relegated this season on the evidence that we have seen so far.
Lorient are 5 points from safety though if they finish in 18th they would be in a play-off but that is a big risk to keep their Ligue 1 status. The clubs last game ended in a 2-1 defeat at Bordeaux.
Overall Lorient’s form at home has seen 2 wins but only seven points earned from a possible 27 and their last home match saw them concede five goals as they lost 5-2 against Monaco.
Dijon are in 18th place so this is a huge game and the club could move 5 points clear of Lorient with a win. Dijon have been in good form and have gone their last 3 matches without defeat.
Dijon pulled off an impressive result when they last played as they drew 0-0 with Marseille. The club have lost 4 games away from home this season but more impressively have gone their last 5 away games without defeat.

Lorient vs Dijon Prediction
Lorient are at home and will fancy their chances but the problem is they come into this match with no confidence.
It’s interesting to think that Dijon were in Lorient’s place just a few weeks ago but they have powered on and this is a huge chance for the club to move away from the bottom three.
We will back with some risk Dijon to win the game. They have a good record over Lorient and are in very good form. There is a good unity about the team and they don’t seem to be looking backwards anymore.
