Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an enjoyable Ligue 1 showdown on Saturday afternoon, Lorient will welcome Lyon to the Stade du Moustoir.

Starting with the hosts, while Lorient might still be looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap, Regis Le Bris’ side are in the midst of a real Ligue 1 flurry. Making an immediate return to winning ways last week as they secured an eye-catching 2-1 victory away at Rennes, the Brittany-based outfit find the mood in their camp at a real high. In fact, including a 3-1 romp against Strasbourg last month, Les Merlus have collected 12 points from their previous five top-flight appearances. Likewise, suffering just a single defeat from any of their previous six outings, Lorient are seeking some crucial stability on home soil. Mustering just a sole victory from any of their previous seven domestic showdowns at the Stade du Moustoir, Le Bris’ men have recorded just a single clean sheet in front of their own supporters since returning from November’s international break. It should also be highlighted, Saturday’s hosts have seen four of their last six Ligue 1 matchups finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Lyon might have turned a much-needed corner on either side of opening the New Year, Les Gones are seeking an immediate response here. Last seen putting in a nightmare performance on home soil as they eventually fell to a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Lens, Pierre Sage’s men will be desperate to prove that display was nothing more than a minor blip. Nevertheless, winning each of their other six domestic appearances across all competitions and skyrocketing out of the drop zone, Saturday’s guests have also gained a reputation for their recent success away from the Groupama Stadium. Including a 2-1 victory against Metz in their last appearance on the road, Lyon have won all of their previous three away fixtures by an aggregate score of 6-3. It should be noted, with Sage’s men seeing all of their previous four showdowns on the road finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.
