Lorient Money Line
2.02 (min. 1.97)
France - League 2
Lorient – Clermont
Along Metz, Lorient is undefeated after 7 rounds being 2nd in table with 17 points, 4 less than Metz. Seems to be on the correct path to Ligue1 and once again hope they will not collapse in the second part of the season (as happened last year) So far 5 wins but none over top teams. So the actual results can be easy deceiving. Last game they had no problems when travelled at Paris won 3-0 versus new comer Red Star after a game they totally controlled. Their game is working great but once again must wait and see how they will cope versus top teams ( later in October first tough games for them). Worth mentioned that Lorient will play this game on their own pitch.
Clermont came to live thanks to three consecutive wins, all at nil. Scored 7 goals in these games and climbed in the table till 8th spot with 11 points. They had a good first hour versus Auxerre in last home game, taking a 2 goals advantage and stopping the engine. Auxerre coach made some inspired changing and Auxerre dominated the end of the game, missing 3-4 clear chances to score but failed in the end. Remained a 2-0 win for Clermont which are hoping to keep as long as possible this positive series. Perez was recovered and is back in squad.
Returning on their own stadium, Lorient should be able to overcome Clermont and to remains near to Metz at the top of the table. Back Lorient to win. gl
