There is a battle at the bottom of the Ligue 1 standings, when the 20th Lorient will play host to the 18th Dijon on Wednesday. Lorient had their previous match postponed due to numerous coronavirus cases among their ranks, but it’s not like they were in any good form. Both teams will fight for the three points here, in a do-or-die match.
Lorient (3-13-3) lost by 1-2 in Bordeaux in their last match, dating back to January 9th. They are win-less in their last five (0-4-1) and have won just one of their last 12 matches in league play (1-9-3). They even failed to score in 7 of those 9 losses. It is no wonder they are stuck at the bottom of the standings with 12 points, scoring 20 and conceding 38 goals in the process. They haven’t been any better at home (2-6-1), scoring 11 and conceding 17 goals in the process.
Dijon (2-9-9) are coming off a 1-1 draw at home against Strasbourg that was actually their third consecutive. They have really tried to pull themselves out of the red zone lately, losing only to Monaco and Lille in their last 9 matches (2-2-5). They are now sitting at the 18th spot of the league table with 15 points, scoring just 13 and conceding 27 goals in the process. Oddly enough, they have done a much better job on the road (2-4-3), scoring 9 and conceding 16 goals.
Free Soccer Pick:
The two teams split the points in a goal-less draw when they met earlier in the season, while Dijon won both matches when the two teams last met in the 2016/17 season. I am going to side with Dijon here, they are undefeated in their last five on the road (2-0-3) and they mustn’t lose this match if they wanna crawl out of the red zone.
