Lille – Lorient Preview

  • Lille were on an unbeaten run of nine straight league fixtures (W5, D4), before finally suffering their first loss of the 2020/21 Ligue 1 (L1) campaign (3-2 away to Brest). A good start is important, especially as each of their last nine L1 victories have seen them score first, with all being accompanied by a clean sheet.
  • Awarded exactly one penalty in each of their last four L1 home matches refereed by Willy Delajod (W3, D1), Lille have won all but one of the last 14 home league fixtures to see them take a HT lead. Additionally, they have won four (lost one) of the five most recent L1 H2Hs held here, while keeping a first half clean sheet in all five.
  • Newcomers Lorient saw their winless run stretched to three top-flight matches (D1, L2), as they suffered a 2-0 loss last time out. That result continued a recent trend, as five of Lorient’s last six league outings have stood level at HT, but ‘Les Merlus’ failed to convert any of those half-time draws into wins (D2, L3).
  • If Lorient keep a clean sheet, it will be the first time since Dec 2015 that the club has registered three consecutive top-flight road trips unbeaten. Yet, with the opener being scored within 30 minutes in three of Lorient’s five top-flight away games this campaign, fans should expect a lively start here, and a low chance of a clean sheet either way.
  • Players to watch: Lille’s Burak Yılmaz has been the game’s last goalscorer in four of his five goalscoring L1 games this campaign. Meanwhile, Pierre-Yves Hamel has scored Lorient’s opening goal in each of the last two league games to see him score.
  • Hot stat: Three-quarters (18) of the all time L1 H2Hs have produced under 1.5 total first-half goals, with exactly half (nine) of those low-scoring first halves being goalless.
