Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Lorient draw no bet
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a stellar purple patch, Lorient will make the trip to Stade the Francis-Le Blé on Sunday afternoon when they meet Brest.
Starting with the hosts, while Brest might be marked their return from the international break last weekend with a 1-1 draw away at Auxerre, it doesn’t cover what has been a worrying run of form for Michel Der Zakarian’s men. Although Les Pirates might have only just missed out on clinching a shock-top half finish last season, it appears that the Reds are now destined to be part of a relegation scrap this time around. Still battling it out in the drop zone and collecting just six points from their opening nine Ligue 1 outings, the former Reims boss will know that his downbeat squad should face a real test on Sunday afternoon. Likewise, on a run that is underlined by a woeful 7-0 drumming at the hands of Montpellier on August 28th, Brest have now failed to win any of their last six domestic showdowns.
As for the visitors, making their return from September’s international break with another stellar display, Lorient are enjoying what has been a remarkable purple patch. Eventually picking up a 2-1 victory at home against former champions Lille, Régis Le Bris’ men now have their sights firmly set on clinching a European finish this season. With it looking like the mood around Brittany is at a red-hot high, Les Merlus have now won each of their last five Ligue 1 showdowns on the bounce. With that run highlighted by a 3-1 romp against Lyon last month, Lorient should rightfully be smelling the chance to lay down another marker on Sunday afternoon. Likewise, picking up a deserved 1-0 victory in their last trip to Brest back on February 27th, an away draw no bet can be found at appealing odds this weekend.
