Our Top Free Predictions for Lorient vs Montpellier

Lorient is struggling to break away from the bottom half of the table. This fixture will test their resilience in that fight, especially after losing four of their last five matches in Ligue 1. With the worst away run in Ligue 1 having won no game away from home, the only hope for Lorient is to continue their fairly good performance on home soil. Find out how we have tipped these teams to perform in this fixture below.

BTTS @ 4/5 (1.80)

Both teams are struggling defensively and with that, we expect goals on both ends of the field in this game. Only two out of the last nine meetings did not have goals on both ends. Montpellier has especially been weak defensively away from home.

Lorient to open the scoring 18/25 (1.72)

The hosts have the 13th best home run and have been defensively strong at home. Note that while Lorient has leaked 9 goals in 11 home games, Montpellier has conceded 20 goals in 11 away games.

Here are the latest stats, H2H and the best odds for the Ligue 1 fixture between Lorient and Montpellier.

Lorient vs Montpellier Match Preview and Predicted Lineups

Lorient may have been unable to win a game away from home but their home stats speak of a team that makes the most of it chances in front of fans. The hosts have the 13th best home run wuth 4W, 4W and 3L. In those matches, the hosts scored 10 and leaked 9 goals. From these stats, it goes that Lorient’s scoring chances have been limited to less than 1.00 goal in 11 home matches so far.

On the other hand, Montpellier is ranked 15th on away run. While they have done fairly well in front of goal, scoring 16 and leaking 20, losing 6 games in 11 trips should worry the visitors in this trip to Lorient.

The visitors won the reverse match 3-1. But can they keep that perfect record to bag six points from Lorient this season? Worryingly, Montpellier have a leaky defence and shoring things up in this game will be the main focus of head coach, Olivier Dall’Oglio. The head coaches of both teams have met seven times with Lorient’s Christophe Pelissier bagging  4W, 1D and losing only twice to his matchday opponent.

Lorient predicted lineup: Dreyer, Petrot, Goff, Mendes, Laporte, Innocent, Lauriente, Monconduit, Boiguard, Moffi, Soumano.

Montpellier predicted lineup: Omlin, Souquet, Cozza, Sakho, Ristic, Chotard, Ferri, Sambia, Savanier, Mollet and Wahi.
