Lorient vs Reims French Ligue 1 Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Lorient vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: 1 May 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir.

Lorient suffered a tough 5-0 defeat to third-placed Rennes last weekend. They have conceded three goals with an extra man on the pitch since Naif Aguerd’s red card was not much of a help for Chris Pelissier and his troops on the occasion.

Lorient will be hoping to rebound from such a painful loss at Roazhon Park on Sunday afternoon when they play host to bottom-half rivals Reims in the 35th round of Ligue 1.

The team led by Christopher Pelissier have done very well on the home patch lately, clinching seven out of nine possible points from the previous three league outings at Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir.

Lorient are, however, yet to secure survival in the top flight of French football being only four points above Saint-Etienne in the relegation playoffs spot with four games left to play.

Their Sunday counterparts do not have such worries being six points above them in the league table.

Reims have established themselves as a strong defensive side throughout the season. Only two of the last ten matches they played on the road thus produced three or more goals.

We saw just two goals in total in the last three games Reims played away from home. Will their style dominate here against Lorient?

Lorient vs Reims Head-to-head

  • Reims have rarely been successful in the away fixtures with Lorient over the course of history.
  • Lorient thus won six, drew three, and lost just one of the previous ten home encounters with Reims.
  • Three of the last four head to head meetings between the two teams ended with fewer than three goals scored.

Lorient vs Reims Prediction

Lorient are in a bigger need for points but Reims have been more consistent throughout the season and we can hardly see them as underdogs on Sunday at Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir.

After all, Reims lost only three of the previous twelve away outings in all competitions. We will back them to avoid a defeat here against Lorient at the odds of 1.57. The Under 2.5 goals FT is another bet worth backing at the 1.61 odds.

Lorient vs Reims Betting Tips

  • Reims to Win or Draw @ 1.57 (4/7)
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.61 (8/13) odd.
