Lorient to win

Lorient manager has a better H2H against his Sunday opponent. Three wins, against one and a draw in five meetings between the two managers. Both teams have seven wins each and four draws against each other in the previous 18 fixtures. We are, therefore, looking at two teams that can sway results either way. However, the hosts have a better form against the Sunday opponents and will be banking on that to pull a win at home. Lorient sits above relegation zone with only one point and we see them winning against Brest that has mostly seen inconsistent results in the last six fixtures.

Lorient to win 2-0

Before a barren draw on the road against Angers two weeks ago, Brest conceded an average of two goals in their previous fixtures since 19th February, 2021.  They have not beaten the hosts on home ground since September 2010, save for an international friendly which the visitors won 3-2 in July 2018. An impressive home record for Lorient against Brest, a porous Brest defense and the fact that the hosts have not lost in the last four league games is why we predict a 2-0 victory.

Total goals under 2.5

While this should be a goal fest fixture given 8 out of 10 last fixtures between the two teams have seen more than two goals, we are expecting Lorient to be more defensive as they fight for safety. Thus, apart from backing the hosts to win with a clean sheet, we also predict less than three goals. A barren draw in their last home fixture against Angers is likely to play significance here as they hope to equally fight for safety. The visitors are only 6 points from relegation zone with only 8 matches to go.

Match Preview: Lorient vs. Brest

We have also prepared match preview for the two teams as follows:

Lorient

Lorient has recently rediscovered their form, going undefeated in four consecutive league games. That is enough to fire them in this fixture against a team that has defensive worries. Brest has the worst away record in the league so far, having conceded 28 goals, one more than the hosts. Brest are better off at home as they currently sit eight in the regard while Lorient are tenth placed based on their home form.

Brest

Brest travels to Lorient with only one win in the last five league games. They have conceded ten goals in their last six games in all competitions. Playing against a team that has conceded four goals less in the last five games is, therefore, a tall order for the visitors. They must improve defensively on face a side that is fighting tooth and nail for survival. Having failed to beat the hosts on the road since September is why we feel the hosts have a home advantage in this fixture.
