FC Lorient vs RC Lens Prediction 9 February 2023

Tournament: Coupe de France
Location: Stade du Moustoir, Lorient
Match date: 02/09/2023 at 20:00

In one of the most interesting matches of the French Cup round of 16, Lorient and Lens will measure their strength.

A year ago, Lorient fought desperately for survival, and now, even after misfires in confrontations with Reims (2-4) and Angers (0-0), they are holding the seventh place in Ligue 1 with 36 points in the asset and goal statistics of 35-34. In the Cup, Les Merlus successfully overcame the barriers in the form of AS La Châtaigneraie (6-0) and Bastia (2-1).

Triumphs over ESA Linas-Montlhéry (2-0) and Brest (3-1) allowed Lens to advance to the Cup round of 16, where there are not so many truly strong opponents left. Let us remind you that in the league, the Blood and Gold are actively fighting for the Champions League spot, slightly aggravating their standings against the backdrop of a 0-1 defeat by Nice and a 1-1 draw with Brest.

Lens’ level is slightly higher, but with the active support of the home crowd, Lorient will try to prevent the guests from succeeding. Since this match is very responsible for both teams, we do not expect a bright game with high performance here.
