Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Auguste-Delaune will host Saturday’s football game between Reims and Lorient. Reims have been struggling to find their form at the start of the season, but there were some positivities in their performance in a 2-2 draw with Rennes. Les Rouges et Blancs are desperate to record their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Lorient.
Les Merlus, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their five-match winless run in Ligue 1. Lorient experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss at Metz, and given their anything but good away record, we are tempted to put our money on Reims this time out. In their last encounter in a competitive match (Ligue 2) Lorient recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reims, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
