Lyon vs Lorient Prediction, Betting Odds and Free Tips (25/09/2021)

 Goals on both ends

We are tipping goal-goal in the Lyon vs Lorient fixture. Both teams are enjoying a fairly good run since the start of a new season, scoring 8 and 12 goals respectively. Moreover, in four of the last five meetings, both sides found the net.

Draw at the break

This fixture promises a tough duel between teams that have had only one draw in the last five meetings. While Lorient hasn’t scored as much as the visitors in seven games, the hosts have a defence that has leaked seven goals compared to Lyon's defence that has let in 11 goals in as many games. A tough duel in the first half should end with a draw at the break in this fixture.

Under 2.5

Our third pick for this game is fewer than three goals. The visitors come to this game with back to back clean sheets; a win and a draw. They have three clean sheets in seven matches played so far. Lyon has two clean sheets in as many games this season. Since we are tipping a tough duel between Lyon and Lorient, we equally don’t expect a lot of goals on matchday. Our pick is fewer than three goals for a great price of 13/10 on Grosvenor Sport.

Match Preview:  Can Lorient Extend Unbeaten Run to Five Games?

Lorient comes to this match with the hope of extending an unbeaten run to five matches. The visitors have WDWD in the last four matches, a record that came on the back of 3-1 defeat away in Montpellier on 22nd August. While both sides have recorded three wins since the start of a new season, H2H stats show that a fixture between Lyon and Lorient is always a tough one. In the last 18 meetings, there were 6D, 1W for Lyon and 5W for Lorient. The hosts have 2W and 2D after four home matches this season and hope to better the record when they host Lorient on Saturday. Lorient is yet to win away from home after recording 3D and 1L so far. Winning in Lyon is unlikely but Lorient should put in a shift to fight for points in this game on matchday.
