Match Preview

The Eaglets welcome FC Lorient to the Allianz Riviera on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Les Aiglons have the upper hand in the head to head, with eleven wins to Lorient’s six, from their 25 encounters. However, they have struggled to win matches in this head to head in the last five years with just one win in five matches since the start of 2017.

OGC Nice come into the match on a run of four league games without a win. They have picked up six points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Le Gym lost their last league match away to RC Lens. Expected goals of 1.4 to 0.8 in favour of Nice indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match and certainly didn’t deserve such a one-sided scoreline. Les Aiglons were playing from the 15th minute with a man advantage after a red card for Lens, yet went two goals down just after halftime. The red cards for to Mario Lemina and Dante killed whatever little hope they had of getting back into the game. The final score of the match was 3-0.

Amine Gouiri is OGC Nice’s top scorer with ten goals in Ligue 1 this season and is 2.625/1 to score against FC Lorient on Sunday.

Their opponent on Sunday, FC Lorient, come into the match having picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Merlucciidaes handed out a beating in their last league match at home to AS Saint-Etienne. Expected goals of 4.1 to 1.2 in favour of Lorient indicates it was likely a fair result. The result was all the more impressive given that they were 0-2 behind after 40 minutes of the match. Ibrahima Kone’s performance stood out in particular for Les Merlus. He had the most chances created in the match with three and also bagged a brace of goals. Kone now has five goals this season in the league for Lorient and is 4.33/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 6-2.

OGC Nice team news

Red cards to Mario Lemina and Dante against Lens means Nice will be without the pair for this match due to suspension.

Alexis Claude-Maurice (Ankle Surgery) will also be unavailable for The Eaglets due to injury on Sunday.

FC Lorient team news

Les Merlus have a full squad to select from with no injuries or suspensions for the trip to the Allianz Riviera.

They are unlikely to make any changes to the side that beat AS Saint-Etienne in their last league outing. Although, Quentin Boisgard will be hoping his goalscoring cameo earns him a recall to start in midfield.
