Lorient vs Nice Prediction 18 February 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade du Moustoir
Match date: 18.02.2017 at 19:00

On February 18 2017 at 19:00 in the regular game of the 26th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade de Moustoir the local Lorient play against Nice.

Lorient are the absolute outsiders of the French elite division, yet they still have chances to stay in it after the end of the season. Today, after 25 games played since the start of the championship Lorient managed to gain only 22 points with the horrible 27:51 goal difference. Moreover, Lorient are still in some kind of a crisis situation and only gained 3 points of 15 possible in the latest five games.

As for Nice, they had a brilliant first half of the season in the national championship. They left all the others competitions to concentrate on the elite division. Anyway, in the second half Nice made a few serious mistakes and lost their first position in the standings. In fact, they take the third position 5 points below the leaders of the league. We must also admit that Nice haven’t won in the away games for five matches in a row already where they drew four times and lost once.

The history of the latest games played between the teams show the advantage of Nice. We must remind you that the teams have already met in the current season. In the first round game of the national championship and Nice won 2:1 at home. As for the cup game, in that competition Lorient won with that same score. Lorient haven’t lost to Nice in the home matches since 2010 for six matches in a row. Anyway, we think that Nice will be trying to be the leaders of the game from the very beginning of it and will manage to score at least once.
