Olympique de Marseille vs FC Lorient Prediction 17 October 2021

Tournament: Ligue 1
Location: Stade Vélodrome, Marseille
Match date: 10/17/2021 at 18:45

The tenth round of Ligue 1 will end on Sunday evening, with a match between representatives of the upper part of the peloton, Marseille and Lorient.

With 14 points, a 14:10 goal difference and one game left, Marseille are in fifth position, which is already much better than in the previous campaign. However, after more or less successful games with Monaco (2:0), Rennes (2:0) and Angers (0:0), the Provençals were weak against Lens 2-3 and 0:2 against Lille.

Over the past month, Lorient had not known the bitterness of defeat. They dealt with strong Lille (2:1) and Nice (1:0), and also had a 0: 0 draw with Reims, 1:1 with Lyon and 1:1 with Clermont. Thus, Les Merlus rose to seventh place, having in their asset the same 14 points with a more modest statistics of goals of 10:9.

Exactly a year without victories in official away matches is a sad statistic for Lorient, which predictably remain in the role of underdogs. We are sure that with the support of their native fans, Marseille will not hesitate with their opponents and will confidently defeat them.
