Team News

  • Lorient will again be without Alain Traore due to a thigh injury, while Benjamin Corgnet is out with a hip problem.
  • Mario Lemina and Mohammed Abu both miss out due to a groin and knee injuries respectively.
  • Gregory Bourillon has a calf problem, Lucas Mareque is still on the sidelines, and Lamine Kone is out with a knee complaint.
  • Mathieu Coutadeur is still recovering from a long-term injury, while Yann Jouffre and Cheick Toure are both unavailable.
  • Valenciennes have very few injury concerns going into the trip to Lorient.
  • Pape Abdou Camara, Kama Massampu and Dusan Djuric are all still out with knee injuries, while Mody Traore has an achilles problem.

Prediction

  • Lorient will look to bounce back from defeat to Lyon last weekend when they meet Valenciennes.
  • Les Merlus submitted a good account of themselves at the Stade de Gerland, but a lack of clinical finishing was to be their downfall as they slipped to a 3-1 loss.
  • They will hope to rediscover their goalscoring touch against mid-table Valenciennes, who demonstrated strength in defence in a dour 0-0 draw with Toulouse.
  • However, Les Atheniens have been blunt as an attacking force in the second half of the season, and they are unlikely to have enough up front to earn any points from this one.
