Lorient vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st February 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustair.
Lorient of course beat PSG at this ground and that is something that Lille we be very weary of when they visit on Sunday early evening.
Lorient have played some good matches but the club could be set to go back down to Ligue 2 and they are in 17th place and just 1 point ahead of the bottom three.
The good news for Lorient who have struggled most of the season is that their form is very good and they have no defeats in their last five games. Last weekend Lorient drew 2-2 at Monaco and that was a very impressive result.
Lille are top of the league and that is incredible to think because PSG has dominated for so long. Lille are only 1 point in front because last weekend they dropped points as they drew 0-0 at home to Brest.
Lille has the best away record in Ligue 1 and they have won 8 from their 12 games and only lost once. They have also won their last 5 in a row. With only 8 goals conceded on their away trips that is also the best record in the league.

Lorient vs Lille: Prediction
We could see the most entertaining game of the weekend. This is because we know the qualities of Lille and how well they have played this season.
But we also know that Lorient are in good form and are fearless and they won’t be afraid to host this match, they have already caused big upsets this season.
The value is with Lorient but of course we know that if Lille click they can score a few goals. But Lorient are going to play a good game and with a good account of themselves. Lille has the added pressure of PSG and Lyon right behind them too.
