- Angers have failed to score in each of their last four fixtures
Can Lorient secure a priceless win this weekend?
Lorient thrashed Bordeaux 4-1 last weekend and moved onto 35pts for the season. Angers suffered their fourth straight defeat as they went down 1-0 at home to Monaco but sit 10pts clear of the relegation places and could secure their safety this weekend, even if they lose.
Angers claimed a 2-0 win over Lorient when the two sides locked horns in December but it is the hosts that head into Sunday’s clash as the form favorites with wins in each of their last two home matches. Not only have Angers lost their last four games in all competitions, they have also failed to score in each of those matches.
The hosts have scored in each of their last six matches and look good going forward right now, which will concern their goal-shy guests. Lorient certainly have more motivation for the 3pts this weekend given the fact that they sit 4pts above both Nantes and Nimes who currently occupy places in the relegation zone.
We’re predicting a home win for Lorient on Sunday and have backed a final scoreline of 1-0. We’re expecting this game to be nervy for the hosts but they should have enough to condemn Angers to a fifth straight defeat in league and cup.
