Valenciennes vs Lorient (By: Alcuni)
Valenciennes – Lorient
I think Valenciennes had a decent start of the year, in their 3 games played so far, they took 1w1d1l, 2 of the games being on the road. They beat Sochaux who gave them a good morale for the postponed game at LeHavre. Even they lost 3-4, after a thriller game, they let a good impression versus a better opponent. But some defensive mistakes and some good finishing of LeHavre made they lost this game where were in lead twice 1-0 and 3-2. Also, at Chateauroux they opened the score thanks to new coming Julan and missed some chances to increase the lead, but were punished in second half and ended 1-1(despite Chateauroux missed also some chances to claim the win). Roudet is missing again being injured.
Once again Lorient disappointed their fans as they hosted GFC Ajaccio, a team in deep trouble, and lost 0-1 even GFC played since 32 mins in 10 men. And with 2 defeats in last 3 games (both 0-1, both versus low ranked teams as Sochaux and GFC) Lorient lost some important points in their tentative to stay close to 2nd spot who will go direct to Ligue1. They are close to the top 5 (6th actually one point behind 5th). But what is matter is their display which is far away from what their fans expect. A single win in last 7 games versus another low ranked Chateauroux and still yet they are favorite in this game too (also worth to mention they lost 4 games out of last 6 trips, wining only at Beziers in this time). Is way to less for a team Lorient with declared promotion ambitions. Sarr who saw red card in previous game is suspended while Rose left the team today. New player Sissoko is making first apparition in the squad.
Lorient is nothing specials this period especially on the road where didn’t scored in last 5 trips (in all competitions). Valenciennes, in their days, can beat anyone (see Lens) and in front of their fans even better. They shown some increase in shape lately and I rate them with more chances for a win.
