📊 Form Guide

FC Lorient LWLLWL

FC Lorient will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-0 Ligue 1 loss in their previous game against St Etienne.

In that game, FC Lorient managed 48% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, AS Saint-Etienne had 13 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Romain Hamouma (19', 51') scored for St Etienne.

It’s not been often in recent games that FC Lorient haven’t conceded. In fact, Les Merlus have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 7 goals during that time. Even so, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might be maintained in this upcoming match.

RC Lens LLWWLW

RC Lens head into the encounter following on from a 1-0 Ligue 1 win with the downing of Paris Saint-Germain in their most recent game.

In that match, RC Lens managed 21% possession and 7 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for RC Lens was Ignatius Ganago (57'). For their opponents, Paris Saint-Germain had 9 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.

Over the course of their last half-dozen outings, RC Lens have amassed the sum of 8 goals. Les Artésiens have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. Over that period, they have seen 9 goals go against them.

Looking at their past form shows that RC Lens:

  • haven't won against FC Lorient when they have played them away from home in the previous 7 league games. Not the best of away records.
  • haven't been beaten by FC Lorient when having played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A glance at their most recent head to head meetings stretching back to 12/04/2015 shows that FC Lorient have won 2 of these games and RC Lens 1, with the tally of drawn matches being 3.

A combined sum of 13 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 7 from Les Merlus and 6 being from Les Artésiens. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.17.

The last league fixture between the two was Ligue 2 match day 13 on 02/11/2019 which ended up with the score at RC Lens 1-0 FC Lorient.

The match was refereed by Benoît Millot.

📰 Team News: FC Lorient

FC Lorient manager Christophe Pélissier does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash owing to a fully healthy group to choose from.

In all likelihood, Les Merlus will probably use the 4-2-3-1 formation for this one, utilising Paul Nardi, Vincent Le Goff, Jeremy Morel, Julien Laporte, Houboulang Mendes, Fabien Lemoine, Laurent Abergel, Yoane Wissa, Enzo Le Fée, Quentin Boisgard and Adrian Grbic.

📰 Team News: RC Lens

Lens manager Franck Haise has not got a full squad to pick from. Cheick Traoré (Achilles tendon rupture) and Charles Boli (Muscular hairline crack) are those who can’t be considered.

There’s a good chance that Les Artésiens appear most likely to make use of a 3-4-3 formation, giving starts to Jean Louis Leca, Jonathan Gradit, Loïc Badé, Facundo Medina, Clément Michelin, Manuel Perez, Cheick Doucouré, Issiaga Sylla, Ignatius Ganago, Gael Kakuta and Simon Banza.

✨ Prediction

Here is a game where RC Lens could find themselves up against it to score goals against this FC Lorient outfit who we think might well get a goal themselves and run out victorious.

Our tip is therefore for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 winning score for FC Lorient at the end of this game.

We’re expecting it to be that close.
