Lorient Looks to Break Losing Streak at Home Against Strasbourg

Lorient’s Struggle at Home

After suffering a 4-2 defeat to Marseille in their last home game, Lorient is determined to avoid a third successive loss at the Stade du Moustoir this Sunday afternoon when they face Strasbourg. Régis Le Bris’ side will be focusing on a solid start, as they have found themselves trailing 1-0 after just three minutes in their last two home games, leading to a combined seven goals conceded. This poor defensive record comes as no surprise, as Lorient has conceded the most goals in the division heading into this round, managing only two clean sheets in their last 23 Ligue 1 fixtures.

Strasbourg’s Mid-Table Position

Strasbourg currently occupies a mid-table spot ahead of this round of fixtures. They returned to winning ways for the first time since late September in their last game against Le Havre, securing a 96th-minute winner. Manager Patrick Vieira emphasized the need for patience with his young team, and they certainly tested the fans’ resolve with their late late show. However, Strasbourg has struggled to secure victories at Lorient, with their last away win against Lorient dating back to 1999. They have managed only one victory in their last eight head-to-head matches, both home and away.

Player Spotlight

Romain Faivre, Lorient’s standout performer, has scored the team’s first goal in their last two home games and even managed a brace in this fixture last season. On the other hand, Strasbourg’s Emanuel Emegha has been in excellent form, finding the net in three of his last four games.

Breaking the Goal Drought

Lorient has struggled to open the scoring in their last six matches, adding to their recent poor form. They have won only one of their last 12 games, drawing four and losing seven. The team’s tenth-place finish from last season seems like a distant memory, and they are desperate to turn their fortunes around.


As Lorient prepares to face Strasbourg at home, their defensive frailties and recent poor form are cause for concern. However, Strasbourg’s historical struggles at Lorient give the home side some hope. Both teams will be looking to secure a victory and improve their positions in the league table. Lorient needs to break their goal drought, while Strasbourg aims to secure back-to-back victories for the first time this season. It promises to be an exciting match with some key players to watch.
