Our St Etienne Lorient prediction
Lorient snatched a good draw against Andy Delort’s Tefécé but did not move quickly to the accounting level. The Merlus will probably not be ridiculous to Geoffroy Guichard and can even score but in the end, the victory should return to the Greens if they make the same commitment as against the OL.
