Lorient Vs Nice – Sports Mole previews Wednesday’s Ligue 1 match between Lorient and Nice, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Lorient Vs Nice
The visitors remain unbeaten after five games, while their hosts sit two places below them in the table, having played one game.
Monaco Vs Lorient
Lorient finished 16th last season, just two points from the relegation play-offs, so they can be pleased with their start to the campaign.
Les Merlus have lost just one game so far – away to Montpellier in the third game of the season – and, more impressively, have beaten two title contenders along the way.
A first-half penalty won and later converted by Terem Moffi – along with a solid defensive display – was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Monaco, and Christophe Pelissier’s side went on to beat defending champions Lille 2-1. goal from Moffi and one for Armand Lauriente.
They were held to a rather dull 0-0 defeat at the weekend against midfield side Reims, but Pelissier will be delighted to see a second clean sheet of the campaign and another point added to their tally.
Lorient Vs Psg Prediction And Betting Tips
Nice will probably be a tough opponent to break down, but another giant-killing performance will go down well with the home faithful.
While it is too early to discuss potential top-four contenders and European contenders, the former Lille boss has used all his title-winning success since last term to make Nice a team to reckon with in 2021-22.
However, the crowd trouble in their postponed match with Marseille represented an early mark on their copybook and was the reason why this weekend’s Cote d’Azur derby against Monaco was played behind closed doors.
It was the visitors who opened the scoring, with Aleksandr Golovin the first to find a way past Nice goalkeeper Walter Benitez this season. Two second-half goals from Andy Delort and Hicham Boudaoui turned the game around, only for Monaco to equalize and Amine Gouiri then missed a crucial penalty late on to make the final score 2-2.

Winning their game in hand would still lift Les Aiglons into second place behind Paris Saint-Germain, and Galtier can be very pleased with the impact he has had on his new side.
Lorient have had some injury problems – Quentin Boisgard, Jeremy Morel and Loris Mouyokolo are all sidelined with heel, thigh and ankle problems.
Captain Fabien Lemoine has also been given personal leave due to his father-in-law’s funeral, with teenager Redwan Bourles potentially given a chance to shine in midfield.
Nice have just two players out through injury, with defender Robson Bambu struggling with a shoulder problem and midfielder Alexis Claude Maurice ruled out with a broken leg.
Moffi Goal Vs Monaco Earns Lorient First Ligue 1 Win Of The Season
However, Galtier will bring back former Southampton and Fulham player Mario Lemina from suspension. Which midfielder will make way is in the balance, with the manager rotating some of his scoring side this season.
Lorient’s good performance and giant killing could end here against a strong Nice side.
Their two most impressive scalps – Monaco and Lille – have started the season poorly and Pelissier’s side are likely to struggle with the expansive style of their opponents.
