Indicating their predisposition for eventful matches, goals have been celebrated 23 times in the previous 6 matches in which Lille have played. Over 2.5 goals is a must option considering that trend.
Meanwhile, Lorient were one of worst the last season, and they were lucky to have avoided relegation.

However, they have started off this season with a set of unbeaten outcomes. The team is somewhat maintaining their unbeaten consistency except for a defeat against Lens in the past month, with a perfect score of 6 wins.
