Expert Betting Tips
No much analysis is needed here. Angers are there for the taking and Lorient should not really be dropping points against such a poor side. So, I will back Lorient to get all 3 points in this match or atleast pulling a draw, which would be very poor considering the standards of Angers team. Lorient can use this match as a wakeup call for their pursuit of 5th place.
