FC Lyon vs Lorient Prediction 8 May 2021

Tournament: Ligue 1
Location: Parc Olympique Lyonnais
Match date: 05/08/2021 at 15:00

Lyon and Lorient will form one of the pairs of the thirty-sixth matchday of Ligue 1. Will the hosts be able to confirm their status as favorites?

Fourth position, 70 points and goals 70:37 - with such an excellent performance, Lyon risk missing out on the Champions League zone. The other day, Les Gones dealt with Monaco in a spectacular style (3:2). And before that, with varying success, they played against Lens (1:1), Angers (3:0), Nantes (2:1) and Lille (2:3).

Elite rookies Lorient are predictably fighting to survive. After matches with Brest (1:0), Lens (1:4), Marseille (2:3), Bordeaux (4:1) and Angers (2:0), Les Merlus scored 38 points with a goal statistics of 46:62 and ended up on the seventeenth line of the tournament table. Moreover, their gap from the relegation zone is more or less decent - four points.

The more high-status Lyon are the clear favorites of this pair. However, we traditionally expect attacking football from Lorient. This means that the match will be rich in efficient shots.
