Tip Reasoning

  • Only two of Lorient’s 12 home matches this season have contained more than two goals
  • There have been under three goals in ten of Lyon’s last eleven fixtures
  • Lyon have suffered just one defeat in their last seven outings on the road

Lorient look in trouble

Lorient lifted themselves up the table with a 1-0 win over Brest last time out, but they are still only two points above the bottom three and they simply do not score enough goals.

Christophe Pélissier’s side have only netted ten times in 12 home league fixtures, while their total of 21 in 26 outings at all venues is the lowest in Ligue 1.

Their dozen fixtures at Stade Yves Allainmat are averaging fewer than two goals per 90 minutes, with only six strikes across the last five games – and only two of their last nine home or away containing three or more goals.

Lyon enduring a poor season

Lyon sit in mid-table in Ligue 1 and head into this tie having won just three or their 12 matches on the road, with only one of the last six of those containing three or more goals.

Peter Bosz’s outfit have however lost only one of those half a dozen fixtures, despite netting just five times across those outings.

There have been 29 strikes in total in their 12 matches on the road, while only one of their last ten in the league has contained three or more goals.

This looks like a match that will lack quality in the final third, so I predict there will be fewer than three goals. It will be a tight one, but Lyon could nick it, so I select 1-0 to the visitors as a correct score prediction.
