Lyon’s Woes Could Continue

The first of our Lyon vs Lorient predictions is Draw or Lorient at EVENS with Bet9ja. The Lyon vs Lorient odds have the home side as a clear favourite but the Groupama Stadium hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Lyon.

Lyon’s start to the campaign has been nothing short of disastrous. They have failed to win any of their seven matches so far and Laurent Blanc, who was appointed midway through last season, has already paid with his job.


Fabio Grosso, the World Cup-winning Italian defender, has since been appointed but results are yet to improve. They have lost both games with him at the helm and failed to score in either of them.

Home advantage may not have the desired impact for Lyon here. The players have been in the Ultras firing line for a number of weeks. The footage of them berating the players following heavy defeats has been circulated across social media and the pressure is building on the team.

Cagey affair on the horizon 

The next one of our Ligue 1 tips for Lyon vs Lorient is under 2.5 goals scored in the match.

Lyon have conceded a host of chances in Grosso’s two games in charge. They had just six shots compared to the opponent’s 27 in his first match against Brest. The defeat against Reims saw his side concede an xG of 2.05.

They are taking on a Lorient side that has struggled to create chances. Lorient have an xG of 6.37; the 2nd lowest in the league. The team have failed to score in two of their three away games.

Lyon are scoring an average of just 0.43 goals per game and their xG of 7.87 ranks just slightly higher than Lorient’s. This game is a case of two sides with struggling attacks colliding. We should see a cagey start with neither wanting to give an inch as they know coming from behind is a tall order.

Faivre can make the difference

The last one of our Lyon vs Lorient Tips is Romain Faivre to find the net at any point in the match.

The 25-year-old has stepped up in recent weeks and his attacking contribution played a key part in their win over Lille and their draw against Monaco. He excels dribbling with the ball and is an adept finisher when he gets the opportunity in front of goal.

Faivre is averaging 1.8 shots per 90 minutes in Ligue this season; 0.7 of those are finding the target. He has found the net in three of his last five matches and has been a standout performer in a bleak period for the club.

We can back Faivre to score at 7/2 on Bet9ja.
