On November 18 2016 at 18:00 in the regular game of the 13th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade du Moustoir the local Lorient play against Monaco.
The starting period of the current season was very bad for Lorient. The loss to Bordeaux 2:1 in the latest game was their ninth one in the 12 games played and prolonged their winless series at the same time. Before that Lorient drew Montpellier 2:2, lost to Dijon 1:0, Nantes 1:2 and Nice 2:1. As a result, their 7 points gained and 9:20 goal difference let them take the last place in the standings of the league.
Monaco, in their turn, are one of the strongest football clubs of France. Even though they have made a few mistakes at the start of the championship, they are still in the race for the first place. The victory against Nancy in the previous game was their eighth one in the current season. before that Monaco won against Montpellier 6:2 and Metz 0:7, drew St. Etienne 1:1 and lost to Toulouse 3:1. Consequently, Monaco gained 26 and take the second place in the standings with three points below the leaders.
In the history of head-to-heads of the teams Monaco won most of the games. Last time they met in January this year and Monaco won in the away game 0:2. Lorient are in pretty bad conditions at the moment and that is why it is going to be very difficult for them to deal with the team, which scores so much. That is why we think that Monaco are the favorites of the upcoming game and are very likely to win with at least two goals difference.
Prediction for the match: Monaco to win with -1 handicap.
