Lorient vs Marseille: Preview & Prediction
This Sunday’s Ligue 1 match between FC Lorient and Olympique de Marseille looks promising and exciting as both teams need to be reassured.
This match will be as important for the Hake as for the Marseillais. Indeed, FC Lorient is currently in the position of red lantern, whereas OM must erase his last two humiliations at the Vélodrome.
It is not the clash of extremes, but it may look like this Lorient team is in the depths of the Ligue 1 ranking. Bernard Casoni’s men are 5 points behind FC Dijon, 18th.
FC Lorient can not do it anymore and the Merlus have even been eliminated from the Coupe de France on the lawn of Bordeaux (1-2). The Hornets line up the failures and besides, in Ligue 1, they have just recorded 3 defeats on the last 3 days with no goal scored.
FC Lorient have lost to Rennes, 1 goal to 0, and most importantly, at Moustoir, Benjamin Moukandjo’s partners remain on three counter-performances, a draw in Toulouse (1-1) and two defeats against Dijon (2 -3) and OGC Nice (0-1).
Lorient vs Marseille: Direct Matches
Fortunately for the Marseille reception, FC Lorient will recover some executives, Mr. Peybernes and Z. Touré. These two rocks could allow FC Lorient to regain some solidity.
This will not be the case of Marseille, because Patrice Evra will always be absent, while Rudy Garcia will have no choice but to line up defenders in great difficulty, Rolando, R. Fanni or Doria.
