Monaco vs Lorient: Best Predictions by Football Whispers

We are tipping Monaco to get their revenge.

Monaco hopes to get a deserved revenge against Lorient in this second Ligue 1 encounter of 2021/22 season. The hosts lost through a penalty in the reverse match but after some impressive results in recent games, it is hard to rule out Monaco from bagging all points in this fixture.
With the third-best home record of 7W, 3D and only 2L, Monaco will be hard to beat. You could say Lorient have a difficult task ahead in their survival quest. The visitors are ranked the worst on home record in Ligue 1 so far. Lorient is yet to win away from home after bagging 4W and 8L in 12 trips. Defensive challenges have rendered the visitors unreliable, especially away from home.
The hosts have four wins out of the last five outings, three of which were clean sheet victories. With such an impressive defensive, Lorient will have to do more work to break down Monaco in this game.

After all, getting all points from Monaco in the reverse fixture was good enough and the main mission in this game is to get a point or focus on avoiding relegation by defeating weaker opponents.
