Lorient vs Monaco Match Prediction: August 13, 2021
August 13, 2021 10:00 pm
All the action will be going down live on the 13th at the Stade Yves Allainmat-Le Moustoir between two teams that drew their respective first games 1-all. Les Monégasques against Les Merlus. In a race to find their first win, both teams will slug it out for 90 minutes on the field of play. The teams currently occupy 10th and 11th place on the league table.
Christophe Pelissier’s men drew even with Saint Etienne on their first game of the season, their miracle-worker coach, having salvaged their Ligue 1 hopes by a hair’s breadth last season, was unable to grab much needed 3 points for comfort even after registering on the scoreboard first through a Vincent le Goff volley. Their lead was effectively cancelled out by a late minute penalty taken by Wahbi Khazri. All the same, the draw was well received by the team.
Lorient’s enigmatic end of season performance meant that they won all their last six home games, sparing one, notably winning the previous four straight up. They will be looking to continue the remarkable streak they currently have
For Niko Kovak and his boys, the taste of frustration from their last game against Nantes remains. Their opening game in this season’s campaign was one in which they were held to a draw by Nante’s defence despite having a superior disposition in the game. The tie is simply a minor blip in their way as they have only recently recorded a resounding victory in the Champions League against Czech outfit, Sparta Prague.
Monaco have been victorious in 9 out of their last 11 Ligue 1 fixtures. While away, they have not conceded for the past five games. In this away tie, they will want to keep the flow while at the same time forcing a win.
Match Prediction and Odds
We think it will end
Lorient 0: 2 Monaco
Monaco is the better team here, with greater team strength and better precedents going into the game. It will take a significant upset to see them lose the game. The other viable possibility would be a draw.
It is clear this game will be a cliffhanger, whether you’re rooting for the underdogs to build up on the success of last term or you’re concerned about Monaco keeping alive their title hopes by winning from the onset, one thing is constant- the passion for the big game. That passion can and will be rewarded when you stake on the game at 4rabet – win big while having fun!
