Nice vs. Lorient Predictions

Score: Lorient 2 Nice 2

Lorient are just one place above the Ligue 1 relegation zone but their performances suggest they are too good to go down.

They beat PSG 3-2 in Mauricio Pochettino’s first match as PSG manager and their home games have tended to be entertaining, with the last eight games yielding 32 goals.

This should be a high-scorer.

Nice have pushed themselves clear of danger with back-to-back wins and can play with a bit of freedom.

All their last five games have seen both teams scoring, so that kind of bet is the way to go here.

Nice vs. Lorient Best Bets

Over 2.5 Goals (+100)
Both Teams to Score - Yes (-135)
Over 3.5 Goals (+230)
