Lorient make their Ligue 1 return this weekend, hosting a Strasbourg side that finished mid-table during an unprecented 2019-20 campaign.

They were top of Ligue 2 after 28 matches and were promoted, though only 5 points separated the top 5 sides in France's second-tier. After 3 seasons there, they certainly weren't complaining about the decision to end the campaign with the existing league positions.

But, can Christophe Pelissier's men prove they belong back at France's top table with a result against opposition who narrowly missed out on European football last season? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lorient vs Strasbourg Betting Tips

Interestingly, Sunday's clash pits two sides against one another for the first time since February 2008 — where Lorient were 1-0 winners.

The hosts went unbeaten in four pre-season fixtures, drawing three and finishing with a narrow 1-0 win over Guingamp last week. Umut Bozok, a £1.4m signing from Nimes Olympique last summer, was the scorer late in the second-half.

The Turkish striker will hope for increased productivity this season after netting just three goals in 18 appearances (all comps) last term. With midfielder Armand Lauriente returning to parent club Stade Rennais after a successful loan spell in 2019-20, others must step up.

Last season's assist-leader Vincent Le Goff (8) and Yoane Wissa (15 goals, two assists) were among Lorient's most consistent performers. Can they thrive against tougher opposition? Strasbourg, winless in their last three league games before the coronavirus shutdown, will provide a stern test.

With Dimitri Lienard — their most consistent performer last term — as well as joint top goalscorers Adrien Thomasson and Ludovic Ajorque (8), this should be interesting.

Lorient vs Strasbourg Correct Score Predictions

Strasbourg have multiple players who've either been linked, or are attracting interest across Europe – Kenny Lala, Alexander Djiku and former Sunderland centre-back Lamine Kone. It's fair to say there's a point to be made against the league's newcomers here, but I'm not convinced they will prevail away from home. I'm predicting BTTS.
