Lorient vs Bastia by Kamlesh

Lorient are currently on a bad run and they are winless in their last 5 league matches, drawing 2 and losing their last 3 consecutive games. Injuries to important players is one of the factor to explain their poor form. Main Goalkeeper Audard (13/0), defender Gassama (13/0), midfielder Jouffre (24/6) and midfielder Coutadeur (9/1) are injured while defender Bourillon (19/0) and midfielder Traore (11/1) are suspended.


Conversely, Bastia are also suffering from a dip in form and they have lost their last 2 matches but these were against strong opponents (Monaco, St Etienne). Their performance lacks consistency and again, they are not helped by injuries to important players in their squad. Main Goalkeeper Landreau (22/0), defender Palmieri (22/0), defender Cioni (9/0), midfielder Ba (12/3), midfielder Cahuzac (21/0), midfielder Raspentino (11/2) and midfielder Krasic (17/2) are injured while midfielder Yatabare (6/0) is suspended.


I wanted to go for a home win due to the fact that Bastia are missing more important players and they play badly on their travels but the poor form of Lorient does not inspire me to back them. For this reason, I prefer to look for value on the goal market.


With both teams missing key players in defensive positions (including their main goalkeeper), I expect the match to have lots of goals given the fact that they both have a terrible defence. 3 of the last 5 home matches of Lorient ended over 2.5 goals while the 6 last away matches of Bastia ended over 2.5 goals. The last 3 encounters between these teams also ended over 2.5 goals.pin
