Lorient – Paris FC : Preview & Prediction
Lorient, who has recruited the former coach of Amiens, Christophe Pélissier, plans to find the elite of French football at the end of this season. The Merlus have recruited the former Olympics Nimes striker Umut Bozok to achieve this goal. The pre-season games were mixed with victories over Concarneau (2-0) and Laval (1-0) against defeats against Guingamp (1-3) and Brest (1-2). The Lorient, who remain on 2 draws in Ligue 2 at Moustoir against Auxerre (2-2) and Sochaux (0-0) at the end of last season, will want to start strong this new year. The arrival of Paris FC which has always declined in Brittany could offer the first 3 points to FC Lorient. The Paris club, eliminated during the play-offs of accession by Lens (1-1, 4 tab 5) May 21, has a negative balance on its friendly meetings. Thus, Pitroipa’s teammates failed against Le Havre (0-4), Le Mans (0-2) and Dijon (0-1) but had a happy spell against Quevilly (2-0) and Orleans (2- 0). With two losses on his last four trips in Ligue 2 last season, Paris FC knows the difficulty of this trip to Brittany.
Lorient is undefeated against Paris FC: 2 wins and 2 draws.
Lorient has always won the Parisian club at Moustoir: 2-0 in April 2018 and 2-1 in November 2018.
Les Merlus have 3 wins in their last 5 matches.
Paris FC have suffered four setbacks in their last six outings.
The Lorientais remain on 1 success in front of Laval (1-0) in friendly on July 20th.
FC Lorient, with strong ambitions, should be able to pocket his first 3 points at home against an opponent who succeeds rather well.
