Lorient: Another win to escape the relegation zone?

With two wins in the last couple of rounds of Ligue 1, which is the same number of wins Lorient had in the previous 19 rounds, they are now in the 16th place in the standings and tied in points with the first team outside of the relegation zone, which greatly improved Lorient's odds of avoiding relegation. Benjamin Mendy and Quentin Boisgard are out with injuries, while Formose Mendy is suspended.

Player to watch: Eli Junior Kroupi

After Romain Faivre ended his loan spell with Lorient to return to Bournemouth, the top scorer for the team at the moment is the 17-year-old Eli Junior Kroupi. The youngster impressed with four goals and three assists in Ligue 1, so we'll pay attention to him in this match.

Kroupi to score in the first half?

The young French forward has scored four goals in the top flight this season, which also means his career, and three of those four goals have come in the first half. In fact, they were all scored within the first 22 minutes, so we might see another early goal by the teenager.
