Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lorient and Lens, the two newcomers, square off against each other at Stade du Moustoir in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. Les Merlus failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Saint-Etienne, but they did remarkably well to crush Strasbourg at home in their first home game of the season. Lorient aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.
Trevoh Chalobah should play for les Merlus this time out after he was quarantined for round 1. Lens, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Lorient’s party at Stade du Moustoir. Cheik Traore is out of contention with injury for the visitors.
