Lyon to win
We kick off our predictions by backing Lyon to win this match. Lorient have been in really good form across their first five games this season amassing 10 points but their record against Lyon isn’t the best; Lyon haven’t lost to Lorient since 2017 and have won two of the last three head to head clashes; one of those wins was on Lorient’s patch last season as the hosts fell to a comprehensive 4-1 defeat. Combine those head to head stats with Lyon’s form, which shows them to be unbeaten so far this season with four wins and a draw from five games and you’ll probably see where we’re coming from with our prediction!
Going over 2.5 goals
Our next tip for this match is that we’ll see at least three goals. Lorient have seen three of their past five games go beyond that threshold with their game average over that period sitting at 3.2 goals. Lyon’s last five have been even higher scoring; they’ve gone north of 2.5 goals in four of their past five outings with 18 goals seen in total – thats 3.6 per match! We can bring you a head to head stat to close this tip out too with three of the last five meetings going over 2.5.

Can Lyon remain unbeaten?
Both of these sides have made strong starts to the season and are either in or around the European spots. Whoever comes out of this game with the points could well announce themselves as a contender that's likely to stick around the top end of the standings. Let's see how the sides are likely to line up.
Lorient have a few injuries in their squad for this game but, in reality, their strongest XI is likely to be good to go with the players due to miss out only on the fringes of things when fit. The most likely to have been involved if fit is probably Quentin Boisgard.
Lorient Predicted lineup – Mvogo, Kalulu, Laporte, Talbi, Le Goff, Le Bris, Abergel, Le Fee, Ouattara, Moffi, Kone
Lyon have made a solid start to their season but they’ve got a few players absent, which could take its toll as the campaign progresses. Houssem Aouar and Jerome Boateng are the biggest names to miss out here.
Lyon Predicted lineup – Lopes, Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico, Faivre, Tolsso, Caqueret, Tete, Lacazette, Ekambi
