Victory Likely for Lorient

Lorient bagged an all-important victory of 4-1 at home against Bordeaux last weekend. The hosts are now four points off the relegation zone and hopes for more points on Sunday. Meanwhile, Angers has been struggling, losing all their last four fixtures in all competitions. The visitors are 12th in the League and two points will keep them from worrying with four games to play. In this fixture, we are backing Lorient to keep their good record at home against Angers with a victory on Sunday. The hosts are in dire need of points and have a better form than Angers going into this game.

A low-Scoring Game

Only four of the previous 10 encounters between Lorient and Angers have had more than two goals. And while Angers has let in at least three goals in three of their last four games, losing 1-0 at home to high flying Monaco could be a motivation coming into this fixture. On the contrary, the home team hasn’t been letting in a lot of goals in the last six games, save for the previous 3-2 defeat to Marseille and 4-1 loss to Lens. Lorient 4-1 win against Bordeaux last weekend and another home advantage should give them an edge, albeit, we expect fewer than three goals.

Lorient Win Both Halves

While we are predicting few goals in this game, Lorient should win both halves. Angers are better placed in the 12th position. Lorient is 17th and any slip with four games to play could be catastrophic. Thus, we are backing the hosts to the net early in the first half and carry that win through the second half.

Match Preview: Can Lorient make another Safety Leap on Sunday?

This fixture is about Lorient’s chances of survival. But can they build on their 4-1 victory last weekend?

Lorient

The hosts desperately need points. They have the 9th best home record this season of eight wins, two draws and seven losses in 17 fixtures. While Lorient manager, Christophe Pelissier is yet to defeat Angers manager, Stephane Moulin, the hosts have not lost at home to Angers. Moreover, home advantage in an important fixture like this should provide Lorient players with the right atmosphere even without cheering fans in the stands. A win for Lorient means they extend their victories over Angers to four games. Angers have defeated Lorient only twice in the previous ten meetings.

Angers

Angers have a worrying form stretching back 11th April when they lost 3-0 to Monaco and registering another 3-0 loss thereafter to Rennes followed by a heavy thrashing of 5-0 in Coupe de France by PSG. Angers again lost 1-0 to Monaco last weekend and playing on the road could compound their misery. However, Christophe Pelissier can inspire Lorient players to keep five-game unbeaten against Lorient manager, Stephane Moulin. It would, however, take improved defense for Angers to bag points in this fixture.
