      Lille vs Lorient Predictions

      Lille managed just two wins through their 15 games and were languishing near the bottom of the table. They’ve now their last two games, holding serve with a 1-0 win at home against St Etienne and then picking up a hugely important 2-1 away victory over Caen.

      Scoring two goals in one game was especially impressive. Lille still only have 11 goals in 17 games, so three goals in two matches represents a significant outburst. It certainly looks a lot better in the standings.

      Lorient have performed pretty well all season long after barely escaping relegation last season. They’re currently placed eighth after picking up six wins and seven draws from 17 games. Last weekend, they displayed that new found ability to get results securing a 3-2 away win over Toulouse.

      Neither of these sides are going to go all out and open up, but it’ll be interesting to see whether Lorient can bother Lille’s defence with their side and play off set pieces.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Lorient find a way

      They’ve been getting results when they need to get them and we just quite like this match-up from Lorient’s perspective. Lille are not going to come at them and they’re going to have their opportunities to attack from set plays and set pieces in the final third of the field.

      2. Odds on Double Chance

      We’re getting 23/20 on a double chance bet for a Lorient side that are playing good football and in a game that involves a Lille, that despite recent form, still have only hit the back of the net 11 times this season.

      3. Lille due a defeat

      As well as they’ve played, Lille’s run of form has been at least based a little on the swing of luck and we see that being a factor in this match-up.
