Reims vs Lorient
Reims – Lorient
Last game of 23rd round brings face to face two teams used with the Ligue 1 air.
Was a difficult to predict round, a round with 8 games ended ( in 1, x, 2 terms) with odds higher than 2.85 ( as an average) with 4 draws and 3 away win in the games played Friday night. Also the 9th game was 5-6 mis away from a draw so…
Now with 2 games remained in Ligue 2 for January let’s try to hit the winner no. 300 here on betshoot.
Reims is in a great shape with 7 wins in a row and 10 points over 2nd spot in table occupied by Nimes (who lost last 2 games). But, in all last 3 games they had problems to win – well the true is they didn’t forced too much. In last game played at home they were dominated, large period, by rock bottom Tours having a lot of luck not to concede. Also on the road at 2nd rock bottom, Bourg Peronnas made a poor game, Bourg missed couple of huge opportunities prior to Reims open the score with 15 mins to go. Nevertheless, the results remains and Reims is not the team with higher chances to promote in Ligue 1, why not winning the title in Ligue 2. 2 important missing for this game as main GK Mendy and def Kamara are both injured.
Lorient is not anymore a trustable team. Despite didn’t played so bad as results suggest, they aren’t able to collect points in order to climb in the table. They lost 2 important points in last game at home versus Clermont, being leveled in injury time, after missed 2-3 good chances to increase their fragile 1-0 lead. And thanks to this result they are on 6th spot, 5 points behind the play-off spot. So, in order to stay close to the promotion battle, they must not lose points especially at home. Cause on the road they were quite poor – last win came late in October versus Orleans. Is a team with huge defensive problems, conceding too much for a Ligue1 pretender. Some changes in Lorient squad lately: Wissa came in few days ago while Melsoub, Waris and Selemani left the squad. Playmaker Cabot will miss here.
Should be an open game and keeping in mind the above expect an overish game. Why not a Lorient win? 1-2 for me. Back the over. gl
