Lorient vs Paris FC (By: Joey)
It’s the start of a new Ligue 2 season and Lorient will hope to keep their unbeaten Ligue 2 record against Paris FC intact. The hosts are unbeaten in four Ligue 2 games (W2, D2) against Paris, scoring exactly two goals in the last three matches in this division. They had a mixed pre-season, though, winning two and losing two friendlies. Lorient finished last season sixth in the table and had a five-match unbeaten run (W2, D3) to end the division. It was a poor finish to their home season, though, with Lorient winning just one of their last six Ligue 2 fixtures (W1, D3, L2). Thankfully, though, they have won both their home H2Hs in the division, scoring four goals and conceding just one. Paris FC finished fourth last season and were unlucky to have missed out on promotion, losing to Lens on penalties in the playoffs. The regular season, though, saw them finish with a five-match unbeaten run (W3, D2) managing four clean sheets. Their away form has been impressive too, with Paris winning six of their last ten Ligue 2 trips (W6, D1, L3).
Lorient are unbeaten in four H2Hs in Ligue 2 (W2, D2), scoring exactly two goals in three of those.
Lorient have failed to win five of their last six Ligue 2 home fixtures.
Both teams scored in just three of Paris FC’s last ten Ligue 2 away fixtures.
Both Lorient and Paris FC will have high hopes of promotion this season after managing to stay so close in the playoff race. Recent form suggests that Lorient have an edge over their opponents, especially in this division. That doesn’t take anything away from the fact that this could be a tight game.
