We can’t be too confident about Lille triumphing in this clash after winning just one of their four matches to date. The champions opened with a 3-3 draw away to Metz before being hammered at home to Nice and it’s clear that Les Dogues are going to have their work cut out when it comes to repeating last season’s surprise triumph.

The ship was steadied with a 2-1 win over Montpellier before the international break although it’s still hard to trust the visitors’ defence in this clash, with Lorient likely to be confident that they can also get among the goals at the Stade du Moustoir.

Having finished sixteenth in Ligue 1 last season, it would appear the early signs for the 2021-22 season is looking promising, with Christophe Pélissier's side having already claimed away draws at St Etienne and Lens, while they were also able to claim a 1-0 win over Monaco.

We think the best bet could be Over 2.5 Goals in this game, with neither side making lots of appeal on the Full-Time Result betting market although there’s a more attractive angle by going down the goals route and expecting the net to bulge at least three times.
