A low scoring outcome

Our first prediction is straight out of previous encounters between these two teams. Strasbourg and Lorient have seen fewer than three goals in four of all their five encounters since 1998. Despite a scoreline of 3-1 in favour of Lorient in the previous fixture, this should be a tense game as both teams battle for safety points. Both teams have 41 points but Lorient is sitting on the edge of the relegation playoff zone, a position that puts them at risk of a prolonged season. However, the visitors have put in some decent performances to survive relegation by a whisker. We expect a spirited fight from the visitors to get at least a point then bet on luck that Nantes loses their last game of the season.

Lorient to get a win or get a point

Lorient has been formidable since March, losing only thrice in the last nine Ligue 1 fixtures. A slip of 4-1 to Lyon two weeks ago is quite understandable. But recovering a week later to beat 10th placed Metz is commendable. On the flipside, Strasbourg has had mixed outcomes since the start of March. The hosts have lost five of their last 9 Ligue 1 games. It is something to worry about coming into this fixture despite a 2-0 away victory last week at Nice.

Draw in First Half

This game is important to both sides. A point will be treasured by either Strasbourg or Lorient. With that in mind, a tense and cautious first half encounter will likely end in a draw at the break.

Match Preview: Lorient to Continue their Survival Quest

A survival quest continues on Sunday 23rd May 2021 when Strasbourg host Lorient in the last game of the season. See more details below.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg has been quite uninspiring, and at worst, unpredictable. The hosts have won only once at home in their last five home fixtures, which was at the start of March against Monaco. They lost the other four home fixtures within that duration. Such a poor record at home should worry Thierry Laurey and his squad, especially in the last game of the season in which they need points.

Lorient

Lorient have been quite impressive in the last ten games. However, losing four of their last five games on the road is worrying for Christophe Pelissier and his squad. The best they have managed on the road since the start of March in a draw. However, we bet the visitors will be keen to defend their victory in the reverse fixture even as they battle for safety points.
