Lorient - Dijon

PICK: Lorient team totals over 1,5 @1,884 PINNACLE 4/10

Match between 20th and 15th placed teams in Ligue 1 will be played on Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir in Lorient and it will start at 20:00 on Saturday.


Lorient is coming to match after disappointing defeat in Monaco (4-0), but I believe that this result won't affect their atmosphere too much, as they won 4 matches in row at home. Moukandjo and Toure are still away with national teams, but Waris & co. are here and with their attacking approach I believe that we'll see goals from Lorient.

Dijon didn't lose in last 4 matches, but that doesn't change the fact that they are poor away team, winning only 4 points in 10 away matches this season. They are still without important defender Chafik (ACN), Riviera and Kwon are injured, while midfielder Gastien left the club. 

I expect opet match from both sides, as only 3 points are separating them on league table. It's statistical fact on which I am not paying too much attention but I will mention it in this time. Last time that Lorient won points and score less than 2 goals was on 24/9/2016. After this match they won  1 or 3 points only when they scored at least twice. Even if that's statistic, it is prove for their shaky defence and on the other hand Dijon is team who can play really defensively, but they are doing it in this way only against top teams. I believe that against last positioned team in league, they will try to play offensively and to win the match. In my opinion Lorient will win the match, but I decided to take this option which covers also 2-2 draw.

FT: 2-3
