Lorient vs Strasbourg Free Betting Tips
Is Lorient having a successful start to the season?
Match: Lorient – Strasbourg
Competition: Ligue 1
Betting Tips: 1
In France, the new Ligue 1 season kicks off this weekend. As always, the star ensemble from Paris is a huge favorite to win the title. It will probably only be a matter of time before PSG bag the next championship in Ligue 1. Four Ligue 1 games are scheduled for Sunday. Among other things, the newcomer Lorient will kick off the season.
The “Merlus” benefited from the end of the season in France and rose in the end of the season despite their bad shape. At home in the Stade du Moustoir, Lorient meets Strasbourg. As the odds of the best bookmakers show, the “Merlus” are slightly favored at the start of the season.
In the pre-season, Lorient remained unbeaten against national competitors. At the dress rehearsal before the home game against Strasbourg there was a 1-0 home win against EA Guingamp. The guests from Strasbourg lost before the start of the season with 2: 3 against FC Metz.
When you consider how weak Racing Strasbourg was in last season’s away games, it is by no means absurd to start the season between Lorient vs. Strasbourg to make a prediction on the home side.
Lorient – Statistics & Current Form
FC Lorient wants to re-establish itself as a Ligue 1 team. Last season, the “Merlus” rose early after the end of the season in France. The French Football Association’s decision came in handy. After all, Lorient was in a form crisis before the end of the season and would have slipped from the promotion spot if his form had persisted.
Start the 2020/21 season with a home win?
In the summer, the team structure in Lorient coach Christophe Pelissier’s squad remained largely stable. How the Pelissier team will present itself at the season opener cannot really be foreseen, but there were promising approaches in the preparation, especially in the defensive game. In three out of five friendly matches, Lorient remained clean.
On the offensive, Yoane Wissa is the glimmer of hope. The goalgetter of the “Merlus” scored 15 goals in the last season and put on four more goals from his teammates. Also this season, Wissa is expected to be the linchpin of the Lorient offensive. There is support from newcomers such as Grbic, Diarra and Boisgard.
Second strongest home team in Ligue 2
Last season Lorient had a strong home record of 9-1-4. The fact that the “Merlus” should not be underestimated at home was already felt by PSG in the French Cup last season. FC Lorient lost in the Coupe de France only 1-0 to the star ensemble from the French capital.
Lorient coach Pelissier will not have to complain about any serious failures on Sunday afternoon. If Lorient prevails against Strasbourg, attractive odds are paid out for tip 1.
Probable formation of Lorient:
Nardi – Le Göff, Laporte, Saunier, Delaplace – Lemoine, Abergel – Wissa, Le Fee, Lauriente – Grbic

Strasbourg – Statistics & current form
Racing Strasbourg didn’t get off to the best start to the season last season. Nevertheless, the “Coureurs” ended the 2019/20 season in the respectable tenth place in the Ligue 1 table. Relegation was never really endangered for the blue-whites. Rather, Strasbourg was fighting for an international start right.
Relegation primary goal?
Relegation is again the top priority for Racing Strasbourg this season. The transfer activities for the border team remained manageable in the current transfer window. There has not yet been any major reinforcement. If there are still no serious departures, a new placement in the middle of the table would not be surprising.
Racing Strasbourg’s defensive team played a major role in the Blue-Whites’ recent success of the season. In the 27 league games, Thierry Laurey’s team conceded only 32 goals – 18 of them abroad. In contrast to the strong home games, the “Coureurs” presented themselves quite vulnerable in the away games. Only 14 points were scored in 14 away games.
If the away weakness continues this season, it will hardly be possible to win points with the home-strong promoted team. Laurey will only have to do without the injured Matz Sels on Sunday afternoon. There are no further failures to complain about.
Probable formation of Strasbourg:
Sels – Carole, Mitrovic, Kone, Djiku, Lala – Thomasson, Bellegarde, Lienard – Mothiba, Ajorque

08/15 2020 Strasbourg 2 – 3 Metz

While Lorient benefited from the end of the season in France, the premature end of the season did not really come in handy for Racing Strasbourg. The “Coureurs” still had the chance of an international starting place. Since not much has changed in the Racing Strasbourg squad since then, it remains to be seen whether the strong 2019/20 season will continue this season.
In the pre-season season, Laurey’s team didn’t make a good impression. In contrast, FC Lorient delivered promising performances in the summer preparation and built on their own home strength on Sunday afternoon.
