Monaco vs Lorient Predictions

  • Monaco won by a 2+ goal margin and without reply in four of their last five home games.
  • Lorient lost by a 2+ goal margin in four of their last five away games.
  • Only three sides picked up fewer points than Lorient across the last five rounds.

European dreams for Monaco

A 2-0 win over Lyon last time out saw Monaco keep pace with the top-five ahead of this easier looking clash on paper at home to relegation-threatened Lorient. That momentum is key if they are to bridge the gap as there was a mere four points separating fourth from eighth prior to the weekend round.

Scoring goals hasn’t been a problem for Monaco of late, they have bagged at least twice in eight of their last nine competitive clashes, including each of the last five.

Monaco have often been convincing favourites as well, going unbeaten in 16 of their 21 applicable Ligue 1 games across the season, with eight of the ten victories therein seeing a 2+ goal margin.

Relegation looms for Lorient

Lorient could send a message to their relegation rivals with a victory here as they are the first team to play, but anything other than victory could see them end the day in the bottom-three if results transpire against them as it is only goal difference currently keeping them afloat.

Aligning nicely with Monaco’s commanding victories, Lorient often lose badly when they end up on the wrong side of a Ligue 1 result. Eight of their 11 league defeats this term eclipsed a -1 handicap and that includes six of their seven away defeats, suggesting this will be another tough afternoon.

Overall, the trends point perfectly towards a convincing Monaco victory. I predict a handicap-busting victory for Monaco as they strengthen their European push while damning Lorient to vulnerability. As for the correct score, I think this could be a straightforward 3-0 home success.
