LRN vs MON Fantasy Prediction: Lorient’s season hits a new low as the club sinks into the relegation zone.
For Lorient, the two week break in the Ligue 1 was a much needed one. Falling down into the relegation zone after failing to win their fourth match in five, the hiatus couldn’t have come at a more ideal time for the club.
In a real soup at the moment, Lorient know things need to change and change fast for them. With time running out and running out for the club fast, nothing but a late surge and constant source of points will rescue the club’s season.
For the home side, today’s first clash of 2021 is of paramount importance not only owing to the pickle they find themselves in. With AS Monaco stuttering in form as well, a win for Lorient today is not only on the cards but could end up being the catalyst of their renaissance.
While Lorient do stand a chance to salvage something from the contest, we see them succumbing to their third defeat in their last four outings.
Lorient’s Mendez and Thomas are both out with injuries while Fabien has been suspended for this tie.
Benjamin and Golovin are both injured while Eliot’s red card will also see him miss out.
Probable Playing XI
Nardi, Le Goff, Morel, Laporte, Hergault, Lemoine, Boisgard, Abergel, Monconduit, Lauriente, Moffi.
Lecomte, Aguilar, Disasi, Maripan, Henrique, Diop, Tchouameni, Luis, Martins, Volland, Ben Yedder.
Lorient – Wissa: 5 Goals.
Monaco – Wissa: 5 Goals.
LRN vs MON Fantasy Prediction
We begin our set of picks for the fixture with the pick of Paul Nardi from the home team. The only shining light at the back for the team, he’s done everything within his repertoire to safeguard his side’s sticks.
Having failed to have scored in three of their last five matches, Lorient have ended up slipping to defeats in all of those encounters. The side has made for a lacklustre attacking unit, a setup the trio of Axel Disasi, Ruben Aguilar and Caio Henrique can easily spurn from scoring.
The one pick for us from the home team as well with us reposing faith in the gallant Julien Laporte.
Yoane Wissam’s insatiable appetite when it comes to scoring has seen him already pop up with the 5 strikes for his team. AS Monaco elsewhere will see four goal man Sofiane Diop and Youssouf Fofana be inducted in our team.
Their top scorer with a staggering 7 goals and 4 assists, Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland who has the 7 goals and 3 assists both make way into our setup. Completing our team is Adrian Grbic from Lorient in lieu of his three goals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Wissam’s 11 goal contributions make him our captain while Kevin is the vice-captain.
Nardi, Disasi, Henrique, Aguilar, Laporte, Fofana, Diop, Wissa, Volland, Grbic, Wissam.
