Lorient – Lille
The Ligue 1 is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Lorient lock horns with Lille on Friday. Lille have been exceptional over the past year and have a point to prove this season. Lorient are in seventh place in the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and have been inconsistent this season. The home side played out a 2-2 draw with Lens last month and will need to step up in this game.
Lille, on the other hand, are the reigning French champions and stormed their way to the Ligue 1 title this season. Les Dogues edged Montpellier to a 2-1 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
