Team News

  • With a sub appearance last week and an international goal this week maybe Joel Campbell will be in Christian Gourcuff’s plans for a surprise selection.
  • With some defensive mistakes against Valenciennes you’d think the manager would make some changes if he had any other options. Perhaps Pedrinho or Falette could come into the back four.
  • Another option is defender Gregory Bourillon. Recovered from his injury could he make his return to the back four?
  • After a further scan it seems that Yann Jouffre has suffered a hamstring tear and will miss the next three weeks.
  • Mathieu Coutadeur is still out, so Arnold Mvuemba and Alexis Romao will play in the centre of midfield.
  • Wesley Lautoa, Jeremie Aliadiere, Maxime Baca, Julien Quercia and Gilles Sunu are all injured.
  • Onyekachi Apam will be suspended after his red card. John Boye is the most obvious replacement in the centre of defence.
  • If Boye doesn’t play there could be a return to the side of Kader Mangane with the defender now fit again.

Prediction

  • What a fantastic way to end the weekend, everyone loves a derby and the Breton derbies are always close exciting affairs. Lorient have the joint best home defensive record in the league but have struggled of late to find a victory. Talk of crisis at the club, a media lock down has been put in place at the Stade de la Moustoir. Will the lack of distractions help then get past Rennes?
  • A point against Lille was the least that Frederic Antonetti’s men deserved at the weekend. After dominating the game for 40 minutes, a sending off and quick goals changed
  • the course of the game but Mevlut Erding was there in injury time to save a point.
  • Two tough teams that have quality all over the pitch. All odds are off for a derby game, this one will go right to the wire.
