Free Predictions for Lorient vs Saint-Etienne by Football Whispers

Lorient and Saint-Etienne are currently locked in a survival battle at the bottom half of Ligue 1 table. Lorient is currently 16th while the visitors are 18th after last weekend’s fixtures. Here is how we have tipped these teams to perform this Friday.

Saint-Etienne will be the first team to score @ 19/20 (1.95)

Saint-Etienne is our pick to score the first goal in this game. The visitors haven’t looked worse than Lorient defensively in recent games. And so, despite playing away from home, two clean sheets and three goals leaked in the last four games is a fairly good defensive record to bank on. The hosts have as many clean sheets from the last four games but leaked nine goals, six more than Saint-Etienne, in the last four Ligue 1 games.

Both teams will be on the score sheet @ 6/5 (2.26)

Our second tip for Lorient vs Saint-Etienne back goals on both ends. Both teams have defensive worries ahead of this duel. Our second prediction goes ahead H2H stats which show that five out of the last 8 duels failed to register goals on both sides.

Match Preview: Lorient and Saint-Etienne locked in Survival Battle

The battle for survival has started in Ligue 1 with eight matches to go. Both Lorient and Saint-Etienne are staring at an eminent drop unless the two teams come up with a working survival plan.

Lorient is 16th with 28 points, only a point ahead of 18th placed Etienne. Looking at the previous duels between Lorient and Saint-Etienne, we expect a difficult game. There last twenty encounters saw three games end in a draw. Within that time, Lorient bagged eight wins while Saint-Etienne had nine victories. Only three draws in the last twenty meetings, means a draw is the least expected outcome in this fixture if we premise our prediction on H2H stats.

One of the three draws was in the reverse encounter this season, so we look forward to a second meeting of the season between two struggling outfits. We could have another draw in this duel as both sides are wary of defensive struggles and will, therefore, avoid going too deep into the final third.

Lorient predicted lineupDreyer, Petrot, Le Goff, Mendes, Laporte, Ouattara, Moncounduit, Aberel, Le Fee, Moffi and Kone.

Saint-Etienne predicted lineup-Bernadoni, Camara, Mangala, Nade, Thioub, Youssouf, Gourna-Douath, Kolodziejczak, Nordin, Boudebouz and Bouanga.
