On 10 September 2021 at 8:00 pm UK time, Lorient will lock horns with reigning champions Lille at home in the 5th round of Ligue 1.
Lorient’s overall performance last season was mediocre, finishing just two points above the relegation zone to stay in Ligue 1.
The team has not done much to attract new players this season, but the team’s record is still good, with one win, two draws and one loss in four rounds of matches, and is currently 7th in the league with five points.
However, it is worth noting that although Lorient’s attacking performance is decent, their defensive mistakes have increased significantly and they have conceded goals in the last 2 matches.
In addition, Lorient’s home field is a major source of points for the team, as it finished 6th in the league last season.
Last season, Lille won the league title against Paris. The new season has started off very poorly due to the departure of a number of key players and poor signings.
After 4 games, Lille have won 1, drawn 2 and lost 1, and are 10th in the league with 5 points. Looking at the stats, Lille have scored 6 goals in 4 rounds and conceded 9, which is one of the most goals conceded in Ligue 1 at the moment, with obvious problems at the back.
Lille’s last home match against Montpellier was a mediocre affair, with 45% possession of the ball. However, the attacking side improved, with 15 shots and 4 on target, more than twice as many as the opponents. With goals from Yagès and David, the team finally took down the opponents 2-1, and also collected their first win of the season, which still gave a boost to the morale of the team.
In their previous meetings, Lorient have won 3 and lost 7 of their last 10 matches against Lille, a clear underdog, and were beaten twice last season.
As for the recent situation, Lorient, as a downstream team in Ligue 1, has been able to perform well in the new season, while Lille, the defending champions, have been in a slump, only getting their first win in the league in the last round.
From the current attitude of all parties, there is no support for Lille, thus it can be seen that Lorient is still expected to grab points at home.
