Lyon, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-3 Ligue 1 triumph vs Monaco.

In that match, Lyon managed 53% possession and 17 shots at goal with 5 on target. For Lyon, the goalscorers were Memphis Depay (57'), Marcelo (77') and Rayan Cherki (89'). AS Monaco FC had 12 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Kevin Volland (25') and Wissam Ben Yedder (86') scored for Monaco.

It’s been all too rare in recent times that Lyon have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Lyon have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 10 goals along the way.

Ahead of this clash, Lyon have not emerged victorious against FC Lorient in their previous 3 league matches.

FC Lorient will go into this encounter following on from a 2-0 Ligue 1 win with the defeat of Angers SCO in their previous outing.

In that game, FC Lorient managed 49% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For FC Lorient, the goals were scored by Yoane Wissa (44') and Fabien Lemoine (48'). Angers SCO got 9 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.

Demonstrating their partiality to productive matches, the back of the net has been hit 20 times in the prior six games in which FC Lorient have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals for each meeting. Their opponents have hit 9 of those goals. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this game, however.

Looking at the pre-match facts, FC Lorient:

  • have not lost to Lyon when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 13 league games. They clearly need to do something about it.

↔️ Head to head

Checking on their past head to head clashes going back to 15/02/2015 shows that Lyon have won 1 of them and FC Lorient 2, with the number of drawn games standing at 3.

A total of 14 goals were produced between them in this period, with 6 of them for Lyon and 8 netted by Les Merlus. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.33.

The previous league contest between these sides was Ligue 1 match day 5 on 27/09/2020 when it finished FC Lorient 1-1 Lyon.

That day, FC Lorient managed 31% possession and 4 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. The scorer was Yoane Wissa (63').

At the other end, Lyon had 19 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Léo Dubois (74') was the scorer.

The referee was Clément Turpin.

📰 Team News: Lyon

Lyon boss Rudi Garcia doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy squad available for selection. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Marcelo, Mattia De Sciglio and Maxence Caqueret.

🗞️ Team News: FC Lorient

Out of a mainly available group, there is just the lone fitness issue for the FC Lorient gaffer Christophe Pélissier to contend with. Quentin Boisgard (Muscle Injury) misses out for this game.

✨ Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that FC Lorient have the firepower to breach the defence of this Lyon lineup, although it realistically won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.

Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Lyon by the conclusion of the game. There looks to be little in this one.
