Lorient vs Lille Match Preview and Team News
Lorient have made a solid start to the 2021/22 campaign, taking five points from their opening four games and losing just once. Though they were 2-1 up with just 20 minutes remaining, a 2-2 draw away from home at Lens last time out represents another solid result, one they’d love to replicate against the champions. FC Lorient has been finding it hard to keep clean sheets lately, but they’ve also done enough to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last six matches, FC Lorient has seen their goal breached in 5 of them as well as managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches. Both Hergault and Mendes return from suspensions, while all Morel, Mouyokolo, and Diarra are likely to miss the game with injuries. Thomas Monconduit has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Armand Lauriente enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
The reigning champions have won just one of their opening four games so far this season, already falling seven points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain. Lille has the same points return as Lorient, but they’ll be far less impressed given their title win last season. Still, Les Dogues have recovered well from their 4-0 thrashing to Nice — managed by their title-winning boss Christophe Galtier — taking four points from Saint-Etienne (1-1) and Montpellier (2-1). Lille have won their last two games against Lorient by an 8-1 aggregate scoreline and will expect more of the same on Friday. Portugal international Renato Sanches is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. In their last meeting at the venue, Lille outplayed Lorient 4-1. Jonathan Ikone is a great player, and many clubs are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football. Jonathan David is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his games.
