Lille vs Lorient – Match Preview and Prediction

Lille vs Lorient – The opening match of Sunday’s Ligue 1 schedule takes place at Decathlon Arena – Stade Pierre-Mauroy, where Lille will host Lorient.

Having only two points from their last three Ligue 1 games, the hosts will be hoping to get back on track in the league.

Due to their current run, they are now five points behind Monaco in third place in the rankings (the top three Ligue 1 teams advance to the UEFA Champions League).

At the beginning of their Coupe de France campaign, Lille gave themselves a confidence boost last Saturday when they defeated half-amateur side Golden Lion 12-0.

Conversely, Lorient concluded their cup journey with yet another disappointing display last weekend, losing 1-2 to lower-division Sochaux.

Lorient hasn’t been uprooting trees lately. In their last nine games across all competitions, they have lost seven and drawn two; in their last four losses, they have given up at least two goals.

With 35 goals given up in just 17 games this season, Regis Le Bris’ team has the worst defensive record in Ligue 1, sitting second from bottom in the league rankings.
