Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In what could be a lively Ligue 1 showdown on Sunday lunchtime, Lorient will welcome Lille to the Stade du Moustoir.
Starting with the hosts, last seen heading into the international break with another thumping display, Lorient have continued to shock many across France since opening the 2022/23 campaign. Eventually breezing their way to a 3-1 victory away at Auxerre, Les Merlus mark their return to action this weekend sat third in the table and with a European charge at the top of their agenda. Losing just one of their opening eight Ligue 1 contests and gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays, Lorient have now won each of their last four top-flight contests. Likewise, along with bagging a trio of strikes in their previous three consecutive appearances, Régis Le Bris’ side have also collected 12 points from just their last five domestic showdowns. Holding the second-best attacking tally so far this season, the Brittany-based outfit could be smelling another chance here.
As for the visitors, managing to make an immediate return to winning ways before heading into September’s international break, Lille will be desperate to find some stability. Missing out on a European finish last season and appearing that they could face another uphill struggle this time around, Paulo Fonseca’s side have also been seeking some much-needed resolve at the back. On a run that is highlighted by a 7-1 drumming at home against PSG back on August 21st, the former Roma boss is yet to see his inconsistent side record a single clean sheet since opening the 2022/23 campaign. Making the trip to Brittany knowing that they could face a real test on Sunday lunchtime, it should be noted, with Lille seeing each of their opening eight Ligue 1 contests finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Lorient vs Lille 7/10 for Sunday’s Ligue 1 matchup @ 888sport
