Lorient vs Montpellier Prediction: Sportpesa Mega Jackpot Predictions
FRANCE: LIGUE 1 – ROUND 7
Date: 30 September 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:15 EAT
Venue: Stade du Moustoir (Lorient)
Lorient began the Ligue 1 season strongly, going unbeaten in their first three matches (with 1 win and 2 draws). However, their recent form has taken a sharp, yet exciting, downturn, as they have managed only one point in their last three games (with 1 draw and 2 losses). These matches were high-scoring affairs, with a total of 15 goals, culminating in a 5-3 defeat to Nantes in their last outing. Notably, this was the first time since December 2010 that Lorient lost a top-flight game despite scoring three goals.
Manager Régis Le Bris’ concerns primarily revolve around the defensive aspect, as his team has kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 matches. Despite this defensive vulnerability, Lorient has maintained a strong home record, having lost only three home league games throughout the year (with 6 wins and 5 draws).
Montpellier, who are level with Lorient on six points, have also had a poor start to the season, highlighted by a recent goalless draw with Rennes. This marked their first scoreless game in 50 Ligue 1 matches and solidified their joint-worst start to a top-flight campaign since the 2015/16 season when they earned only one point from their first six games.
Montpellier’s visit to Lorient comes at an opportune moment, as they are currently unbeaten in their last 13 Ligue 1 head-to-head meetings (with 7 wins and 6 draws). Manager Michel Der Zakarian has a strong track record against Lorient, having lost only three of his 14 managerial head-to-head encounters with them (with 7 wins and 4 draws).
