Lorient and Angers to both hit the back of the net

Lorient and Angers will face off at the Stade Yves Allainmat on Sunday afternoon in the French Ligue 1 with both teams eager to pick up all three points for differing reasons.

Lorient currently sit in the relegation play-off spot third from bottom in the French top flight following a disastrous sequence of results which has seen the hosts lose seven out of their last eight matches overall.

Indeed, Lorient have actually failed to win any of their last 12 games overall and you have to go back towards the end of September for Lorient’s last victory in Ligue 1 which came in the form of a 1-0 home win over Nice.

Lorient had made a solid start to this Ligue 1 campaign as the hosts had lost just one of their opening nine games but the rot has well and truly set in since and they now face another tough prospect in the shape of Angers on Sunday afternoon.

Goals could feature though as five of Lorient’s nine home games have seen goals for both teams.

Angers dropped down to 12th place on the Ligue 1 ladder following a second loss on the trot just before Christmas as they were handed a heavy 4-1 loss away from home at Montpellier which was after a 1-0 loss at home to Clermont.

Form and results overall have been fairly disappointing and inconsistent where Angers have been concerned as the visitors have picked up just two wins out of their last 10 matches overall which were victories over Lorient (1-0 at home) and a 2-1 win on the road at Reims.

However, five defeats within this 10-match sequence suggest that Angers could find this upcoming trip to the Stade Yves Allainmat a tricky outing to navigate especially as the visitors have managed to collect just two away wins throughout the whole of this season’s Ligue 1 campaign.

Angers have also been involved in no fewer than six stalemates as well, each of which ended in a score-draw, while goals for both teams have featured in nine of Angers’ 10 away games so far this season.

Angers have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 outings on the road while Lorient have kept just two in their nine home matches to date so both teams scoring looks likely here.
