Lorient are in an active struggle for survival this season. Ahead of this round, Les Merlus are not in the relegation zone, but they are only one point ahead of it - they are on the 16th line with 28 points. After beating Clermont 2-0, Lorient failed to lose to a tough Strasbourg side (0-0), but last time round PSG beat them 1-5. It should be noted that the team have scored only 25 goals in 30 games - their worst result in Ligue 1.
Saint-Etienne are also having a dismal season, where they are struggling to keep their place in the elite. At the moment, the picture is sad, as the team are in 18th place with 27 points under their belt. Recently, though, the Greens have improved noticeably. In nine rounds, they have lost only twice. One of their defeats came in the past, when St Etienne lost 2-4 to Marseille.Watch Free Live Stream
Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers' analysts consider Lorient to be the favorites for the match, but we wouldn't write off Saint-Etienne. The visitors have only lost in the last nine rounds to Marseille and PSG, which speaks volumes about their good form. Since this is a battle of the outsiders, with every point being worth its weight in gold, no one will take any unnecessary chances. In this case, we're inclined to bet on a double-chance for the visitors and Total Under. Prediction: Saint-Etienne will not lose + Under Total (4.5).
- X2 + Total Under (4.5) for 1.71;
- Total Under (2) for 2.09;
- Correct score 0-1 for 8.50.
