On January 27, the Stade du Mustoire will host the match of the 20th round of Ligue 1 of France, in which Lorient will meet with Rennes. The start of the fight is scheduled for 22:00 Kyiv time.
The team at one time, in 2002, managed to reach both cup finals, and managed to win one of them. But still, the “hake” do not belong to strong teams, and even when they play in League 1, they are fighting for survival there. They finished 16th last season. Against this background, the wards of Regis Le Brie have noticeably improved. In autumn, there were 6 victories in a row, which allowed us to rise to the European Cup zone. Then, however, already from mid-October, there was a noticeable decline. It turned out to win only once, in early January, against the modest Angers – it is clear that Lorient was gradually falling in the standings. After 1:3 with Marseille, they have already rolled back beyond the European Cup zone. In the cup, Bastia were also not beaten during playing time, but still went through on penalties.
The club also suffered from Marseille. On January 20, due to the only goal of Guendouzi, Olimpik was able to knock the Red-Blacks out of the national cup at home. But in this way, Bruno Genesio and his wards got rid of 1 more load, because they already have enough where to spend their energy. The French have passed the group stage in the Europa League as usual, and in February they will face Shakhtar Donetsk in the 1st round of the playoffs. But at the same time, I also want to habitually compete for maximum goals in Ligue 1 of France. Last season there, due to additional indicators, they won the dispute for 4th place against Nice. And now, by the same principle, they are inferior to Monaco, but, of course, the Red-Blacks intend to get to the 3rd, Champions League position. It interferes with the fact that, while consistently winning at home, on the road, at first there was a draw with Lille, and then a couple of defeats.
Rennes had 3 wins in a row. But in August, Lorient managed to win on the road due to Teat’s only own goal.
Bookmakers are waiting for revenge from Rennes, and it is worth agreeing with them. We recommend betting on this – the guests will win with a coefficient of 1.93 according to Parimatch.
