Match preview

The Lancers welcome FC Lorient to the Gabriel Montpied Stadium on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. These sides met for the first time in the French top-flight back in October with the sides sharing the points with a 1-1 draw.

Clermont Foot come into the match on a run of two league games without a win. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Lanciers lost their last league match away to LOSC Lille. Expected goals of 2.0 to 0.5 in favour of Lille indicates perhaps it was a fair result even if the scoreline was a touch harsh.

The Lancers fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance as they managed to get only one of their nine shots on target. The final score of the match was 4-0.

Mohamed Bayo is Clermont Foot’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is the 2.37/1 favourite to score against FC Lorient on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, FC Lorient, come into the match on a run of two away league games undefeated and have kept a clean sheet in both matches. They have picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Merlucciidaes lost their last league match at home to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 2.6 to 1.3 in favour of Lyon indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Terem Igobor Moffi goal just after halftime looked like it would be the start of a comeback. However, Lyon reclaimed their two-goal lead almost straight from kick-off. Moffi now has four league goals this season for Lorient and is 3.1/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-4.
