Lorient vs Bordeaux: Preview & Prediction
This duel between FC Lorient and the Girondins de Bordeaux is looking explosive, as the Hake and the Bordeaux people need a victory over this last day of the Ligue 1.
In the position of barrist before this encounter in front of Bordeaux, FC Lorient must imperatively win to escape, because it seems difficult to imagine a feat of Caen at the Parc des Princes.
Unfortunately, FC Lorient will be deprived of Ciani and perhaps two important elements of the device of Bernard Casoni, striker Benjamin Moukandjo and midfielder Sylvain Marveaux.
On the last days of Ligue 1, FC Lorient recorded only one victory, it was at home in front of FC Metz (5-1). Since that success, the Merlus have been beaten in Nantes (0-1) and Fos sur Mer in front of SC Bastia (0-2), but mostly they lost valuable home points in front of SCO Angers (1-1 ).
Since the end of January 2017, FC Lorient has been beaten 4 times at the Moustoir. The partners of Waris (9 goals) had a delicate calendar on their lands with the receptions of OGC Nice, PSG or Marseille.
Faced with these 3 “cadors” of the Ligue 1, FC Lorient did not take the least point, so it may be difficult to win in front of the Bordeaux Girondins, forced to win.
In 2017, no team of the top 8 was beaten at Moustoir, so Bordeaux must enjoy. The Girondins must win to hope to get a ticket in the Europa League, but they will not have their destiny in their hands because OM must be hooked by SC Bastia.
The Girondins de Bordeaux have been undefeated for 6 days in Ligue 1, but they remain 3 draws, in Dijon, Saint Etienne and Marseille.
