Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
This match has been postponed.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Deaux):
Born in Reims, France on December 26, 1998 Lucas Deaux started his career at Reims. The right-footed midfielder scored seven goals in 117 appearances in the league for the Stade Auguste Delaune outfit and he moved to Nantes in the 2012 summer transfer window. Deaux quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the club and you should bear in mind that he played no less than 119 league matches for les Canaris from 2012 to 2015.
In 2016 he moved to Belgium, signing a deal with Gent, but he made only five appearances for de Buffalo’s in the Belgian top flight. Lucas Deaux soon returned to France as he signed a three-year-deal with Guingamp on July 1, 2016. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as a centre-back as well if needed.
His preferred foot is right and the 188-cm-tall footballer is very good in the air. Lucas Deaux scored two goals, while providing five assists for his teammates in 38 appearances for Guingamp in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign.
Highlighted Team (Lorient):
Founded back in 1926, Lorient is a French football club that competes in Ligue 1. Les Merlus have yet to win the Ligue 1 trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the Coupe de France in the 2001/02 season. In the title game, Lorient defeated Bastia thanks to Jean-Claude Darcheville’s goal.
The same season les Merlus made it to the Coupe de la Ligue final, but Bordeaux proved to be a big catch (0-3) for them in the title game. Lorient welcome their rivals at Stade du Moustoir, the stadium which can hold up to 16,392 spectators. The colour of the team’s home shirt is orange with a little black on it, while white is the dominant colour of their away jersey. In the 2002/03 season Lorient represented France in European competitions.
Les Merlus, though, failed to impress on their debut in the UEFA Cup as they were beaten by Denizlispor in the round 1 double-header.
