Lorient Vs Lyon Betting Tips
Regis Le Bris, who advanced through the managerial academy ranks at the Stade du Moustoir, could not have asked for a better debut as the head coach of the senior team, as his team left Roazhon Park with a 1-0 victory to show for their efforts.
Arthur Theatre extended a leg in the 65th minute of the game to block Gedeon Kalulu’s cross from the danger area, but the Rennes rookie could only watch as the ball sailed into his net over Steve Mandanda’s head.
Jeremy Doku was stunningly denied by the Lorient rookie, and Les Merlus are now unbeaten in their last three Ligue 1 games thanks to Yann Mvogo’s wonderful acrobatic stop of the score at 1-0 in the dying minutes.
While Christophe Pelissier’s achievements shouldn’t be quickly forgotten, 46-year-old Le Bris has already had a successful debut with Les Merlus. However, the visit of a reenergized Gones team will serve as a true test of their mettle.
Despite allegations of a falling out between the ex-Arsenal player and coach Peter Bosz, which he vehemently disputed, the return of Lyon’s favorite son Alexandre Lacazette heralded immediate success for Les Gones as Lyon opened the new season with a 2-1 victory over Ajaccio.
Tete scored the game’s first goal after Lacazette set him up, and Tete later earned a penalty that his captain converted. However, Les Gones were forced to play the majority of the game with ten men after Anthony Lopes cleanly dispossessed Mounaim El Idrissy.
After Romain Hamouma committed two bookable offenses, Thomas Mangani stepped up to score from 12 yards, but Bosz’s team relieved some of the weight of their boss with a narrow victory.
A third victory from four away games this weekend would quell the rumblings of unhappiness for the time being. Bosz’s chances of staying in the managerial hot seat, in the long run, haven’t been helped by the team’s failure to qualify for Europe and a mixed bag of pre-season results.
In their last four meetings, Lorient and Lyon have had two 1-1 draws, with the other two ending in convincing 4-1 victories for Les Gones, as they did at the Stade du Moustoir just five months ago. However, the visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet against their less prestigious opponents since 2015.
Prediction: Lorient 0-2 Lyon

Bosz may have some admirable attacking options in his squad if Lyon can get all of their injured players back in time for the match on Sunday. Lacazette already presents the impression of being rested and eager to perform in his native country.
Although Lorient had to rely on their own goal to defeat Rennes, they displayed great defensive tenacity. Thus, Lyon could not expect to penetrate the Merlus backline easily.
Lorient vs Lyon Team News
Lorient shouldn’t have any new injury worries going into the game on Sunday, although Julien Ponceau’s knee problem could keep him out for a few more weeks.
Armand Lauriente and Enzo Le Fee’s fates are still up in the air, but it’s likely that they’ll both join Terem Moffi in the final third of their first home game of the year.
Leo Petrot and Loris Mouyokolo are both available to bolster the defense if necessary, but Le Bris shouldn’t feel the need to make any adjustments on matchday two.
Starting lineup for Lorient might include Mvogo, Kalulu, Talbi, Laporte, Le Goff, Innocent, Abergel, and Ouattara, in addition to Le Fee, Moffi, and Laurente.
As a result of Lopes’ clattering of El Idrissy and consequent red card, Lyon’s starting goalkeeper will miss the next three games, giving 35-year-old Remy Riou the chance to prove his mettle in goal.
While Maxence Caqueret and Corentin Tolisso, a midfield combo, should have a decent chance of being available from the opening whistle, left-back Henrique, who is making his comeback from a suspension, will find it difficult to replace Nicolas Tagliafico.
Despite being close to returning, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Romain Faivre, and Moussa Dembele may play. Lacazette will also need to be evaluated after pulling up a calf issue during training earlier this week.
Starting lineup for Lyon: Riou, Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico; Paqueta, Lepenant, Aouar; Tete, Lacazette, Toko Ekambi
