Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at The Stade du Moustoir comes in the form of a Lorient victory, with over three goals scored between the two sides.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £75 with Bet365.
Two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting seasons to date are set to lock horns in a Ligue 1 clash at The Stade du Moustoir on Saturday, October 15th.
The matchup at hand will see a Lorient outfit continuing to defy expectations play host to struggling Stade de Reims.
The head-turning form of Regis Le Bris’ Lorient, as regular viewers of France’s top-flight will be well aware, has proven one of the headline talking points of the season to date.
En route to a place in 2nd in the table, the Merlus have remarkably notched wins in eight of their ten fixtures thus far.
The latest of these came last weekend, when a trip to Brest ultimately culminated in Lorient emerging on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
Terem Moffi, meanwhile once more proved the star of the show, notching both goals for Le Bris’ troops to join Paris Saint-Germain superstars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at the top of the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts.
Lorient, in turn, will no doubt be confident in making it seven wins on the spin this weekend.
This comes with the upcoming visitors to the Moustoir, in contrast, enduring a season to forget to date.
Reims, to their credit, have secured back-to-back points hauls over the course of the last couple of weeks, the latter of which came courtesy of a hugely credible stalemate with champions PSG.
All told, though, the club have struggled, en route to just a solitary victory across ten attempts, enough to see boss Oscar Garcia sent on his way earlier this week.
One shining light amid an otherwise underwhelming opening to the term has come in the form of Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun’s endeavours, with the English youth international having been directly responsible for half of the goals netted by Les Rouges et Blancs thus far.
With Reims remaining in the thick of the relegation dog-fight, though, we at 101 are backing Lorient to emerge comfortable victors come the full-time whistle on Saturday evening.
