Match preview

The Merlucciidaes welcome Montpellier HSC to the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match.

Le FCL’s Lorient’s last league match, away to AS Monaco FC, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.1 in favour of Monaco indicates Lorient were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point. Matthieu Dreyer in Les Merlus’ goal certainly earned his coin making four saves to earn his clean sheet. Things at the other end will be a worry though, with just one shot on target in the match.

Their opponent on Sunday, Montpellier HSC, come into the match on a run of two defeats in a row. They have picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Paladins lost their last league match at home to LOSC Lille. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.7 in favour of Lille indicates perhaps it was a fair result.

Les Pailladins will be getting extra finishing sessions in this week after managing to get only three of 16 shots on target. Téji Savanier was particularly guilty, missing the target with four of his efforts. The final score of the match was 0-1.
