Lorient vs Grenoble Prediction

Lorient were on the road the last match-day, against Chateauroux, and were trailing 1-0 at half time. However, in the second half, in the four minute-span from the 58th minute onwards, the visitors scored three goals in a row, and reversed the scoreline 1-3, in their favor.

Grenoble had to bow down to a last-gasp effort by Nancy, as the former’s home advantage amounted to not much the prior game week. The hosts were on course to record the win but conceded in the 90th minute to let that advantage go.

As things stand, understand that Lorient are one of the best teams in the competition, and are placed second in the table, just a single point below Lens. They are on a winning streak of three games and have scored thrice or more in all three. On the other hand, they are welcoming a Grenoble squad that have stayed winless in 20 of their last 25 away fixtures.

Moreover, Lorient have been unbeaten against this opponent in the last 14 years, and on top of all that, they have the home advantage.

Taking these factors into account, expect a win for Lorient this Friday.
