Monaco favourites to win

It has been more than a decade since Lorient bagged a home victory against Monaco. They last won at home against the visitors in September 2010.  And in the last 12 meetings dating back to February 2011, Lorient has only defeated Monaco twice, all of which were on the road. The last victory over Monaco was in September 2015, an away game that Lorient won 3-2.  Moreover, in the last five trips to Lorient, the visitors scored at least two goals, three of which were clean-sheet victories.

Both teams to score

While Lorient scored in only two of their last five home fixtures, the hosts are in the hot form currently. They did not lose in their five pre-season games, recorded three clean sheets in their last six games covering July and early August. Moreover, the hosts scored an average of 1.16 goals in their last six games. Lorient will welcome fans back to their stadium in their first home game this season, an atmosphere that should inspire them to find the net.

Over 2.5: Yes

We are also backing more than two goals in this game. Both teams are in great shape and form to score in this fixture but an away win should push the goals slightly over two. Four of the last five encounters between these teams had at least three goals.

Match Preview: Lorient Looking for First Victory over Monaco in Nearly Six Years

Lorient is in great form coming to their second game of the new season. But can the hosts get their first victory over Monaco in nearly six years? The host last defeated Monaco in September 2015. However, it was a narrow victory on the road that ended 3-2. The fact that Lorient’s last bagged home victory over Monaco in September 2010, or nearly 11 years ago. In their first game of the new season against Saint-Etienne played a few days ago, Lorient grabbed a point on the road. The hosts registered three shots on target and seven off target.

Moreover, Lorient missed two big chances in their first game of this season, hit the woodwork once, and recorded eight shots in the six-yard box and four outside the box. With that, Monaco will face attack-minded Lorient. However, the hosts were poor in ball possession, having kept only 39% against Saint-Etienne. On the other hand, Monaco will have three-day rest heading to this game after a UCL qualifier game that they won against Sparta Praha on 10th August 2021. The visitors also recorded a 1-1 result in their first game of the season against Nantes. It was not the result Monaco expected given they Monaco completed the double against Nantes last season. The visitors had 75% of the ball in their first game, also recorded three shots on goal and missed two big chances.
