Lorient vs Lyon: Free Predictions by Football Whispers

The last four meetings between Lorient show that these teams have always competed for supremacy. In those encounters, two games ended 4-1 in favour of both sides and the other two resulted in 1-1 draws. Our best picks for this game are as follows:

One-sided scoring game @ 19/20 (1.95)

The fact that Lorient and Lyon drew 1-1 in the last encounter means we should expect a tough encounter on Friday when these teams meet for the second time this season. Both teams have also had ups and downs in scoring goals lately and have seemed to focus more on defending than scoring goals. We expect a less entertaining game as both sides have failed to score lots of goals lately.

Under 2.5 @ 9/10 (1.90)

As Lyon aims to narrow the gap to top four, the hosts look to be in top half of the table. It is a long road for Lorient to make it to the tenth position as they currently sit 16th, 14 points adrift of tenth place. Defensive improvements should hand Lorient some confidence in this game and so is the fact that Lyon is ranked the 16th worst away from home in Ligue 1 after 12 trips. However, by virtue of their positions, the hosts will be more predisposed to defending more than they will attack. A 1-1 draw in the reverse game is a factor in this game, and with that, we expect a game that will not have more than two goals.

Lorient vs Lyon: Ligue 1 Round 27 Preview, Team News and Lineups

Lorient vs Lyon mark our preview of French Ligue 1 previews this weekend. This fixture plays on Friday 4th Mach 2022. Both teams are in desperate needs of points, especially the hosts who are only two points above the red zone. For Lyon, two more wins could see them break into the top four. However, that could be impeded by inconsistencies that have condemned the visitors to just two wins and one draw in the last five matches.

Seven draws between Lorient and Lyon in the last 20 meetings also signals a hard-fought match between familiar foes that recorded two draws and one win each in the last four meetings. And while Lyon boasts 8 wins, three more than Lorient in the last twenty meetings, the visitors are struggling away from home.

In 12 trips so far, Lyon has only three wins and four draws. The hosts have 4 wins and 4 draws in 12 home games. These stats indicate that this will be a close call. Backing few goals and the possibility of having goals on one end of the pitch makes sense.

Lorient predicted lineup: Dreyer, Mendes, Petrot, Le Goff, Laporte, Innocent, Ouattara, Abergel, Monconduit, Lauriente and Moffi.

Lyon predicted lineup: Lopes, Dubois, Mendes, Lukeba, Palmieri, Caqueret, Ndombele, Faivre, Paqueta, Ekambi and Kadewere.
