Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After suffering a shocking loss to Brest before the international break, Lille will be looking to return to winning ways in the Ligue 1 when they host Lorient at Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Les Dogues aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the league, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Lorient on Matchday 12. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced Turkey international Buruk Yilmaz, who scored a brace in the 3-2 loss to Brest.
Les Merlus, on the other hand, sit in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Lille, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous three league fixtures. Even though midfielder Quentin Boisgard returns from suspension for the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on les Dogues, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
