The French Ligue 1 is back in motion with a number of interesting matches, one of which is the duel between Lorient and LOSC Lille which will take place at the Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir on Sunday (27 August).
Both teams have different ambitions this season. Lorient hopes to stay in the top flight of French football, while Lille wants to return to competing at the top and win a ticket to European competition.
Lorient are yet to taste victory this season, having drawn two and lost once in all competitions. The home side played out a goalless draw against defending champions Paris Saint-Germain in their Ligue 1 opener on August 12. These results were quite impressive, considering that Lorient played with 10 players from the 36th minute.
However, Lorient failed to maintain their good performance in the next match. They lost 2-0 to Bournemouth in their last pre-season game on 5 August before being held 1-1 by Lorient on 20 August. In that match, Lorient took the lead through Thomas Monconduit’s goal in the 14th minute, but had to be willing to share the points after conceding a goal from Yoane Wissa in the 66th minute.
Lorient is currently ranked 14th in the Ligue 1 standings with two points from two matches. They are only one point ahead of the relegation zone and five points behind the European zone. Lorient need to improve their productivity in front of goal, as they have scored just one goal in two league games.
Meanwhile, Lille appeared impressive last season by finishing in second place in Ligue 1, only losing on goal difference from Paris Saint-Germain. The visitors also made it through to the UEFA Europa League group stage after eliminating Rijeka 4-2 on aggregate in the playoffs. Lille won 2-1 in the first leg on 17 August, and won another 2-1 in the second leg on 24 August.
In Ligue 1, Lille is also unbeaten this season. They started the season with a 1-1 draw against OGC Nice on 11 August, before a 2-0 win over Nantes on 20 August. In that match, Lille scored two goals through Jonathan David and Burak Yilmaz in the second half.
Lille is currently third in the Ligue 1 standings with four points from two matches. They are only one point behind leaders Lyon and Monaco. Lille have a solid back line, as they have conceded just one goal from their two league outings.
Lille has a better record in this meeting, having won 16 of the last 33 matches. Meanwhile, Lorient only got 10 wins in that period, while drawing seven times. Based on the data above, Lorient have shown their class on the defensive end and they can at least secure a point in tonight’s clash.
