LRN Vs STS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Newly promoted Lorient look to get off running right from their league opener.
Coronavirus couldn’t have come at a better time for Lorient. Where sides were left aghast at the French association’s decision to curtail the league midway given the outbreak of Coronavirus, Lorient welcomed the decision with open arms.
The move saw the side be assured of promotion into Ligue 1 despite losing four of their last five encounters. The one point lead the club held atop of the points tally was more than enough to take it into the 2020-21 edition of the league. And the club has embedded in place gruelling and vigorous hardwork ever since with the side remaining unbeaten in all of its five practice encounters preceding today’s tie.
Its form which augurs well for the home side ahead of their league opener. Up against last season’s 10th placed Strasbourg, Lorient will need to dwell deep into their repertoire of resources as they look to show the country why they were deserving of a spot in the competition.
Enduring their best ever finish in Ligue 1 in 20 years after finishing 10th in the 2019-20 edition of the competition, Strasbourg endured a seriously strong sortie the last time around. The club was only three points behind the top 6 and having played a match lesser than their competitors, the team was right to feel robbed of a probable European football spot.
However, that plight is bygone now with the side looking to emulate its form from last season in this soiree as well. Given Lorient’s current form and their return to the league after a hiatus of three years, we are set to be in a closely contested affair between two clinical side.
We envision nothing separating the two sides today with this one curbing in a draw.

LRN Vs STS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We begin our Dream 11 side with the selection of Paul Nardi from Lorient. The goal-keeper was in stellar touch the last time around, a player who gave his side’s defence a look of aura as he clobbered side’s trying to score past him.
LRN Vs STS Dream11 Defenders
With 32 goals let in past them last season, Strasbourg emerged as one of the more well disciplined and responsible defences last season. The side was a relatively staunch side, a team which often saw teams tread on thin ice when squaring up against it.
Given their knowhow and acumen of the game, we are going to be indulging in the pick of a triad from the club for this outing. All of Anthony Caci, Alexander Djiku and Kenny Lala can immerse us in a shutdown to see the three be our picks for the scrimmage.
LRN Vs STS Dream11 Midfielders
With 8 goals and 2 assists to his name last season, Adrien Thomasson will become the first name to be ingrained in our side for the day’s matchup. The Strasbourg man played a crucial role in making his side such a juggernaut along with Jean-Richer Bellegarde.
With Lorient stringing together the goals in the practice encounters, we have a duo be snared from the club as well for the upcoming contest. In the pick of the enigmatic and indomitable Stephane Diarra and Quentin Boisgard, the side has two names capable of navigating their way past Lorient’s defence with nonchalant ease.
LRN Vs STS Dream11 Strikers
Strasburg’s top scorer last season with 8 goals and 4 assists last season, Ludovic Ajorque had a major part to play in guiding his side to a sensational finish.
With Lorient’s record buy, Grbic set to miss out today owing to an injury, striker Umut Bozok will be asked to fill in for him. A calibre filled player, his flair is more than capable of guiding his side to a win to see him form the duo from the side made up of him and Yoane Wisse.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Having scored 16 goals in between them last season, Ludovic will captain our side while Adrien is the vice-captain.
