Free Soccer Pick:
Over the last five matches played between these two Ligue 1 rivals, Lille has won two and Lorient has won three. However, the two have not played head-to-head for almost four years. Lille lost its last match prior to the international break, but is in second place behind only Paris Saint-Germain in the top-flight French league and will be playing on its home pitch. Lille will push forward from the start and put pressure on a leaky backline for Lorient. Final Score Prediction, Lille wins 3-0
