Fixture: Lorient vs Saint-Etienne
League: Ligue 1
Venue: Stade du Moustoir
Date: Saturday 17th December

Lorient enter the weekend sitting at rock bottom of Ligue 1 with only three wins from 17 matches. While they’ve been underwhelming all season, their best stretch has come over their past four games where they’ve been able to collect a meager five points.
The visitors Saint-Etienne on the other hand, have had a decent campaign thus far. They don’t have a high scoring attack but their defense has let in the third least amount of goals which has allowed the team to come out on top of those tough games.
Better yet for Saint-Etienne, this weekend shouldn’t offer up a very tough game. The hosts have let in a league-high 32 goals and have not found a solution to their defensive problems.
When Les Verts travel to Lorient they will be the clear favorites, but luckily there are still decent odds for a Saint-Etienne victory.
Lorient has lost their last six matches to the visitors and they have failed to score in each of those matches. Considering the current form and recent history of both of these sides, a similar result is the most likely outcome for this weekend.
