Reason For Lorient vs Strasbourg Predictions

  • Lorient lost four of their last five games
  • Strasbourg won five of six clashes with the bottom four last term
  • That run included wins to nil at both the bottom two
  • Just four goals have been scored in the last four top-flight encounters between these two

Lorient make top-flight return

Despite seeing last season’s Ligue 2 campaign cut short, Lorient celebrated promotion back to Ligue 1 last term. However, the halt to the season arguably came at the right time for the hosts, as their form was turning the wrong way.

Lorient lost four of their last five league matches in Ligue 2 before the season came to a halt. Lorient also lost their last two home league matches in Ligue 2 last season, which offers a chance for Strasbourg as the visitors look to get off to a winning start.

Strasbourg to pounce

The visitors have seen their away form improve in 2020, as they come into this clash with an improved record on their travels. Strasbourg have won four of their last eight matches away from home (D1 L3), as many as in their previous 24 such matches in the league (D9 L11).

Their overall away form may have been mixed, but the visitors were able to book their 10th place finish in Ligue 1 last term thanks to their clashes with the lower sides. Strasbourg met the bottom four on six occasions last season, winning five of those. They were able to win at both of the relegated bottom two, so we’re confident in them winning at a promoted side in our predictions for this clash.

Strasbourg to edge tight clash

The visitors should see a win at a newly promoted side as key to another good season, while they get the chance to prey on the hosts’ poor record. We think that the visitors have been overpriced for this one following their improvement on the road, so we are backing a Strasbourg win as our first pick in this clash.

Meanwhile, only four goals have been scored between these sides (1 for Lorient, 3 for Strasbourg) in their last four Ligue 1 matches. As a result, this is likely to be a close encounter. Strasbourg won to nil at both of the bottom two last term and in three of their last four away successes in Ligue 1, so a 1-0 away win is our correct score prediction.
