Stade du Moustoir will host Sunday’s football game between Lorient and Bordeaux, the two relegation-threatened teams. Les Merlus aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Lens (1-4) and Marseille (2-3) and they should take advantage of Bordeaux’s poor form. All Tiago Ilori, Thomas Fontaine, and Matthieu Saunier are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Les Girondins, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the French top flight, meaning that Lorient will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Tom Lacoux is banned for the match, while Laurent Koscielny has joined Samuel Kalu and Otavio in the recovery room. Dilane Bakwa, on the other hand, has been tested positive for coronavirus. In the first half of the season Bordeaux defeated Lorient 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
After rolling over Angers 3-0 on the road, Rennes will be aiming to retain their spot in top five when they take on Dijon on Sunday afternoon. Les Rouges et Noirs are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Ligue 1, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. You should bear in mind that Rennes are eyeing their third home win of the season.
Dijon, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Nice. The Owls continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and given their seven-match losing run on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on les Rouges et Noirs. In the previous meeting between the two teams at Roazhon Park Rennes recorded a routine 2-0 win over Dijon.
