Lorient – Rennes Predictions

  • Currently enduring the same 15-game start (W3, D2, L10) that they recorded in their 2016/17 top-flight relegation campaign, it’s safe to say Lorient are finding things tough so far. Their 2-0 loss at PSG last time out continued a recent trend though, as their last six Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures have now witnessed only one side score, emphasizing the importance of scoring first here.
  • At home, ‘Les Merlus’ can be slow starters, as seen by the fact that they failed to score before HT in 71.43% of their L1 home matches to date. However there has been an average of 1.0 match goals per fixture witnessed from the 71st minute onwards across their seven home league games this term (W2, D1, L4), so this game may feature a late twist.
  • After suffering an eight-game winless run in all competitions (D1, L7), Stade Rennais have turned things around and are now on the verge of registering three L1 victories in a row. Even if they concede the opener here it may not be a disaster, as Rennes have rescued a league-high 1.32 points on average when conceding first since the beginning of the 2019/20 L1 campaign (W8, D5, L9).
  • On the road, the visitors have lost just one of their last seven L1 away matches (W3, D3), whilst scoring first in four of those six won/drawn games. Furthermore, Rennes have lost just one of the last 13 L1 road trips that they entered as betting favourites (W7, D5, L1).
  • Players to watch: Lorient top scorer Yoane Wissa has scored all five of his L1 goals this term after HT, with four coming at home. Similarly, Rennes’ Adrien Hunou has been the game’s last goalscorer in six of the previous seven L1 matches he’s scored in.
  • Hot stat: Just one of the last ten L1 H2Hs held here featured a goalless first half.
