Valenciennes – Lorient : Preview & Prediction
The League Cup starts this week. For the first round of the competition, VAFC hosts FC Lorient. Both teams are in great form since the beginning of the season. Not necessarily expected before the resumption of the championship, Valenciennes has shown that it will rely on him this year. With two wins and one draw, the VAFC has the same record as its opponent of the day. Indeed, FC Lorient also holds seven points to settle on the podium of Ligue 2. However, the Merlus have a very good record on the outside. It should be known that the men of Mickaël Landreau won their two trips in the league (in Châteauroux and Gazelec Ajaccio). FC Lorient could therefore take advantage of its good form out of his bases to get away with a win. Especially since the VAFC has just been held in check on his lawn against Chateauroux.
