Lille Preview – Can the champions stretch undefeated run?

Lille have recovered well from a poor start to their season. Last season’s Ligue 1 champions began the defence of their crown by winning just one of their opening seven games, but they have been tough to beat in recent months.

Lille have shown a big improvement since a 2-1 loss at Paris Saint-Germain on 29th October. The Mastiffs have gone on to win three and draw five of their following eight in Ligue 1 to move into mid-table.

Our betting prediction:
Lille to be winning at half time & full time

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1228 GMT, Tuesday 18 January)

The champions will be looking for a European spot come the end of the season, and they drew 1-1 with third-place Marseille last time out. Can Jocelyn Gourvennec’s troops extend their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 and secure a big three points on their own patch this Wednesday?

Lorient Preview – Will the Brittany club’s long winless run continue?

Lorient are in the bottom three after 20 games played. They have had tough season so far, winning just three times. The Brittany outfit have drawn eight and lost nine of the other 17, scoring a league low 15 goals in the process.

Lorient have been on a miserable run of form since September, failing to win in 13 league games since a 1-0 victory over Nice. After a woeful run of seven straight losses, they did manage to hold leaders PSG to a 1-1 draw to end 2021 on a positive note. They then kicked off 2022 with a 0-0 home draw with Angers.

Lorient are in desperate need of a win having not won since September. Can they follow up the back-to-back stalemates with PSG and Angers with another draw in this one?


Lille vs Lorient Betting Advice

Earlier in the season, Lorient picked up a 2-1 home win over Lille, which remains one of just three league victories this term. Armand Lauriente’s early effort was cancelled out by Burak Yilmaz’s penalty. With three minutes left on the clock, Terem Moffi won the points for Lorient.

On their way to the Ligue 1 title last term, Lille did the double over Lorient, winning 4-0 at home and 4-1 on the road.


Key Facts – Lille vs Lorient Betting Tip

  • Lille have won three and drawn five of their past eight Ligue 1 fixtures
  • The visitors have not won a game since 22nd September
  • Lorient picked up a 2-1 win in the reverse meeting


Lille are not the same team that stunned French football by winning the title last term, but they are showing signs of life after a tough start to their season. Despite the recent draws, Lorient are in freefall, and we fancy Lille to get the points on their own patch. Back the hosts to win -1 at 11/8.

Burak Yilmaz has struggled to live up to last season’s impressive standards, but the Turkey international has hit six goals for Lille this term, including two in his last four. Yilmaz is available at 10/3 to score the opening goal of this one.
