Match Preview

The Merlucciidaes welcome Olympique Marseille to the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Lorient have moved out of the relegation conversation for now with two wins in their last five matches but could easily get sucked back into the drop zone with a poor run in. Marseille’s defeat means they are now only three points ahead of the chasing pack for the final guaranteed Champions League Group Stage place and need to keep winning to secure it.

FC Lorient 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.

Le FCL lost their last league match at home to Stade Reims. Expected goals of 1.7 to 1.4 in favour of Lorient indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match. Les Merlus will be getting extra finishing sessions this week having hit the target with eight of their shots yet only scored one goal despite 1.7xG worth of chances. Terem Igobor Moffi grabbed their only goal and now has eight league goals this season for Lorient. He is 3.3/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. the final score of the match was 1-2.

Their opponent on Sunday, Olympique Marseille, come into the match having picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Phocéens lost their last league match at home to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 2.7 to 1.3 in favour of Lyon indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Les Olympiens dominated the first half and Arkadiusz Milik will be rueing the two big chances he missed to give his side a comfortable halftime lead. Instead, they collapsed in the second half once the first goal went in. The final score of the match was 0-3.

Milik has seven goals in Ligue 1 this season for L’OM and is the 5/1 favourite to score the first goal of the game against FC Lorient on Sunday.

FC Lorient team news

The Merlucciidaes are fortunate to come into Sunday’s match without any injuries or suspensions to worry about.

However, FC Lorient may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against Stade Reims in their last league match. Although, none of the substitutes showed anything in their cameos against Reims to suggest a promotion to the starting eleven is deserved.

Olympique Marseille team news

Pape Gueye received a booking around the hour mark against Marseille for dissent. As he has now accumulated five yellow cards this season, Gueye will be unavailable for Marseille here due to suspension. Injuries will rule out Konrad de la Fuente (keyhole surgery) and Leonardo Balerdi (shoulder injury) for the trip to the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir.

Olympique Marseille may look to a few additional changes to the side that lost against Olympique Lyonnais in their last league match.
