Lorient fans will be hoping this will be their time to finally secure an away Ligue 1 victory against Stade Brestois. Their previous four visits here have resulted in a draw and three defeats. However, they are also the only Ligue 1 side yet to win on the road this season and have the fewest away points of all sides this season with five; half that of the next lowest teams Troyes and Bordeaux on ten.

The Pirate Team welcome FC Lorient to the Stade Francis-Le Blé on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Brest have rediscovered their spark at home, winning four of their last six games here. Meanwhile, Lorient are in real trouble having won just one of their last 18 matches.
Stade Brestois come into the match on a run of two home wins in a row. They have picked up seven points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
Les Ty Zefs shared the points in their last league match away to Stade Reims. Expected goals of 1.7 to 0.5 in favour of Brest indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match.
La Team Pirate had a great chance to win the game when they were awarded a penalty just after half-time but Mohamed Youcef Belaïli failed to score the resulting spotkick for his side.
This meant Martín Satriano's first-half goal only secured a point for Brest rather than kickstarting a comeback win. Satriano now has three league goals this season for Brest and is 3/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.
Their opponent on Sunday, FC Lorient, come into the match on a run of 13 away league games without a win and have also failed to score in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
The Merlucciidaes lost their last league match at home to Montpellier HSC. Expected goals of 0.6 to 0.4 in favour of Lorient indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match.
The Les Merlus fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance with their side failing to create any big chances in the match. Instead, they peppered the Montpellier goal with low probability scoring chances, getting just three of 16 on target, then conceded against the run of play. The final score of the match was 0-1.
