Lorient vs Olympique Marseille – Ligue 1 Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Match Day 8 encounter, with Lorient taking on Olympique Marseille on Saturday the 24th of October, 2020, at Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir.

Lorient visited Reims last weekend, having earned just one point from their five previous matches in Ligue 1. Despite losing 1-0 at halftime, they not only avoided defeat, but they went on to triumph 1-3(!), scoring all three goals in less than 20 minutes (61’ to 80’). Their current form reads; WLLDL. Seven points for them, from as many games in the championship. Second victory, after the one over Strasbourg on their debut, two months ago. Coach Christophe Pélissier played a 4-4-2 formation last weekend, with Pierre-Yves Hamel and Terem Moffi up front. Hamel equalized in the 60th minute, Moffi made it 1-3 in the 80th, and in between, it was Yoane Wissa who had given Lorient the lead from the penalty spot.

Marseille hosted Bordeaux last weekend, eager to finally celebrate a victory, after a defeat and three consecutive 1-1 draws. It all went great for them from the very start, as they took the lead less than five minutes into the game. Another goal early in the second half pretty much secured all three points for them, and the 3-0 in the 64th minute was just the cherry on top. They did concede late, but it didn’t really hurt them. Final score, 3-1, their third win of the season, but just the first one at home(!). Their current form reads; LWDDD. The “L” is midweek’s 1-0 loss in Piraeus, Greece, to Olympiacos, in the Champions League group stage. Marseille conceded in added time, leaving Greece empty-handed. Coach André Villas-Boas played some sort of a 4-4-2 formation last weekend, with Florian Thauvin and Darío Benedetto up front. Thauvin scored the opener, a marvelous goal (curly shot from a distance), missed a penalty soon after that, and provided the assist for Marseille’s second goal). Left-back Jordan Amavi scored the second, and was the man behind Marseille’s third goal as well, as the ball got deflected after a shot of his (own-goal).

Lorient and Marseille haven’t played against each other since the 2016-17 season. Back then, Olympique won twice, 2-0 at home and 1-4 as guests.

Marseille played midweek, and have another Champions League game coming up, against Manchester City, at home. This feels like a good opportunity for Lorient to earn something...

A 1-1 draw is predicted at full-time.

Date: Saturday, 24th of October, 2020.

Venue: Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir

Kick-off time: 17:00 (GMT+2).
