Marseille – Lorient Predictions and Preview

  • Despite having their lowest points tally after 31 games in any full Ligue 1 season since 2015/16, Marseille has a chance to qualify for a fifth consecutive European tournament, especially if PSG wins this month’s Coupe de France final and transfers their Europa League group stage ticket down the table.
  • Marseille has a busy week ahead as they will play three games in eight days to make up for a league fixture that was postponed due to their Europa League commitments.
  • Their current Europa League campaign ended during the week after a 3-0 loss to Atalanta in Bergamo. Now they can focus on making the most of their game in hand to climb up the Ligue 1 standings.
  • Marseille has had an impressive home record this season, winning 9 games, drawing 6, and losing only once. They lost at home only to PSG, the champions. This puts them in an excellent position to earn a fifth consecutive home win against upcoming opponents Lorient.
  • Lorient has far greater issues than retaining a place in European football after a sixth consecutive league defeat, this time 2-0 away to Lens. This left them three points and a goal difference shy of the promotion-relegation play-off that comes with finishing in 16th place.
  • Head coach Régis Le Bris insists the team has worked tirelessly without reward, but even he cannot deny the club has serious defensive issues after conceding 13 goals in their last five outings. Most of these goals came against clubs ending the weekend alongside Marseille in the top half of the standings, so they may find this assignment difficult.
  • Players to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang delighted the away section with a brace in Marseille’s 4-2 win at Lorient in December. He has scored five goals in his last four Ligue 1 home and away games against Lorient. Benjamin Mendy, who recently returned from injury, scored one goal and assisted on that day.
  • Hot stat: Seven of the last nine Ligue 1 matches involving either club produced over 2.5 total goals.
