      Lorient vs Monaco Predictions

      It’s difficult to say that a team is doing badly or well in French Ligue 1 this season. A couple of wins or defeats can move a team either into Europa League contention or towards the relegation scrap. Lorient encapsulate that pretty well, but there are signs that the traditional relegation battlers might enjoy a much safer campaign in 2015/16.

      They do have a tricky run to overcome heading into Sunday’s match-up with Monaco. They were knocked out of the Coupe de la Ligue in midweek action against Bordeaux and they’re without a win in their last three Ligue 1 matches.

      Monaco are where they want to be in the table. They’re currently fourth place and just one point behind second. Dreams of competing for the domestic league title may have vanished, but there are still very definite Champions League places on the line.

      Recent form hasn’t been spectacular, they finished 2015 with a 0-0 draw with last place win-less Troyes and they then started 2016 by failing to beat Gazelec Ajaccio at home. Now is the time to make a move in the table for this club, but can they string a set of results together?

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Neither team has executed their game plan

      You’d probably say that both Lorient and Monaco generally set themselves up to be effective defensive units and neither club has been overly effective. Monaco have conceded 25 times in 20 games, while Lorient have given up 28.

      2. Monaco win urgency

      A couple of poor results back-to-back will surely necessitate a re-focus for Monaco and we just think that they’ll push the pace and urgency in the game a little more as a result.

      3. Lorient are a good side

      Preseason expectations and the club’s recent history might bias bettors against Lorient a little bit, but those who have watched them this season will know that they are a good bet to pick up a win here and they’ll cause Monaco problems.
