Paris FC vs Lorient
French Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 15 April 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Sebastien-Charlety (Paris).
Paris host Lorient in a super exciting promotional six-pointer in the last game of Matchday in Ligue 2 on Monday night at Stade Sebastien-Charlety.
Teams are lock on 53 points sharing the third place in the league ladder with just seven games left to play. They are six points shy of second-placed Brest and still have time to catch up with them in the battle for the automatic promotion to the top tier football (only top two teams in the league get to earn the automatic promotion).
Anyhow, a win here would be required for any hopes of challenging Brest and their second spot. It’s very hard to say which of these two outfits are closer to such accomplishment. The hosts’ ambitions of reaching the much-wanted second place suffered a massive blow with a 1-0 defeat away at relegation-threatened Sochaux last Friday. The defeat ended Paris’ run of three wins and a draw in Ligue 2.
Paris FC vs Lorient: Head-to-head
This will only be the fourth head to head affairs between the two sides.
Lorient were much more successful with two wins and a draw so far.
Nevertheless, we have to say both of their victories came on the home patch, while the only clash played at Stade Sebastien-Charlety ended in a 1-1 draw in November 2017.
Paris FC vs Lorient: Prediction
Lorient had their ups and downs throughout the season. They were on a dreadful thread in March losing three and drawing one of four league games in a month. The lack of defensive stability was the key to such poor streak as Les Hurlus shipped nine goals in these four affairs.
Mickael Landreau’s men did bounce back last weekend, taking advantage of the easier home fixture against relegation strugglers Beziers, but they shipped a goal once again (a 3-1 win).
Paris were much more consistent lately, especially in front of the home crowd. The hosts own league’s best defensive record with only 17 conceded goals in 31 matches. They shipped only 4 in 15 home games, only one of which they lost. The value is enormous with the hosts t net two or more goals at 3.25 odds if we know about Lorient’s recent defensive struggles.
