Lorient vs Marseille Prediction & Match Preview

Lorient vs Marseille
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 24th October 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustair (Lorient).

Lorient are starting to feel the pressure build as they have lost 4 games from seven already and come into this game in 17th place. The newly promoted side have a real chance of going straight back down if they continue this form. At the same time it is early in the season but the signs that we have all seen do not look good.

However maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel given that Lorient did win their last game which came against Reims away from home in a 3-1 victory. At the same time Reims are having one of their worst starts ever to a season and are currently in 19th place.

Marseille are in sixth place but have been inconsistent and really haven’t taken the opportunity to grab maximum points. They did get a good and much needed victory last weekend when they beat Bordeaux 3-1, and that ended 3 games in a row where the club had drawn each game.

Currently L’OM are 5 points adrift of league leaders Lille and their last away game ended 1-1 against Lyon.

Lorient have not beaten Marseille at home since 2012.

Lorient vs Marseille: Prediction

On paper this is a game that Marseille should have little trouble with and should win. But this is Marseille. A club who over the past few seasons can make heavy weather of games.

The key problem is that this is an away game and Lorient will have some confidence back after beating Reims. We should avoid the winner and look into different markets. We expect a fast paced game with lots of goals and there will be a lot of value backing these type of markets for this game.

Marseille can win but we wouldn’t be surprised if this is another game where they struggle in.
