Football Form Labs have a strong fancy for this Ligue 1 clash
Nice v Lorient - Sunday 16:00, BT Sport ESPN
Nice continued their excellent start to the season with a 1-0 win at Nancy last Sunday and as a result maintain their lead at the top of the division, a point clear of Monaco and four ahead of PSG. Lorient look set to struggle again as they’ve lost five of their seven games this term, but have managed to win two of their last three.
Nice have now won seven of nine unbeaten games going back to the end of last season, while they’ve also won 12 of their last 15 at home. They won five of six at home to bottom-six teams last term as they led at the break in half of these games and they also kept a clean sheet in half.
Lorient have lost their last five road games and failed to score in four of these so we’re going to back Nice to win to nil. Lorient lost four of their six trips to top-six sides last term, failing to score in half these games and conceding at least twice in five, so we’re going to have a punt on the 2-0 correct score.
