      Tip Reasoning

      Monaco and Lorient have each been involved with a high number of draws through their respective seasons so far. Monaco because they’ve been unable to finish off games in which they have controlled, Lorient because they are very capable of battling to draws in games which they shouldn’t be in based on possession and chances.

      A 1-0 win over Gazalec Ajaccio last weekend gave Monaco their first win of the season since the opener. It wasn’t much of an achievement either, Ajaccio are newly-promoted, have just one point and are still seeking their first goal in the top flight this season.

      This young Monaco side is undoubtedly talented, but they are missing something in the cutting edge department. Maybe it will come with time, but this is a difficult opponent.

      Lorient are perennial battlers against relegation and it seems like they are destined for a similar challenge in 2015-16. They’ve picked up one win and two draws in their first five games, but it’ll be a shut up shop sort of a day on their trip to Monaco Sunday.

      It’s worth noting that Lorient have gotten away from their game plan in recent weeks. It worked to their advantage last weekend when they scored three goals to beat Angers, but the game before that they suffered a 4-1 hammering at the hands of Stade Reims.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Who will score for Monaco?

      No names come to mind. Anthony Martial sure looks good in a Manchester United uniform and that could be a serious short-term blow to Monaco’s results. They’ll have the ball but we’re not convinced they’ll be able to put it into the net too often.

      2. Lorient resilience

      After two off weeks, we expect a Lorient squad with decent athleticism and good size to bounce back with a strong defensive performance when they need it.

      3. Not an open game

      Neither team will play in a way that is conducive to lots of goals and we think the Under 2.5 Goals bet is a pretty decent offering here.
