Strasbourg vs Lorient
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13 November 2022
Kick-off at 16:05 UK/ 17:05 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Lorient might be going through a rather poor streak at present, but make no mistake that they are one of the best teams in the Ligue 1. Meanwhile, Strasbourg are actually one of the weakest, and are even a contender to get relegated at the end of the campaign.
They are placed 18th in a table of 20, and secured a single win all through the campaign. And of course, that sole victory came against the dead-last placed Angers.
All through the campaign the team let in goals in huge numbers, and they did so even at home. Barring four draws, they have a perfect losing record, and only a handful of teams let in more goals than them in home games.
Meanwhile, Lorient might have lost their last two games. But take note that the defeats came against current champions PSG, and titans Nice. If not for their tough schedule, they might still be on an unbeaten run.
In fact, their third and final loss this season in the Ligue 1 came against another top-tier squad, Lens.
It is clear that the team has made it a habit to perform well against teams in the lower half of the table. And they have got a great opportunity this weekend at the Stade de la Meinau.
Count on them to make the most of this chance, against the struggling Strasbourg.
