Leader of Ligue 2 at the end of last season, Lorient has therefore returned to the top flight after several years of absence. After nearly ten days contested in this new championship, the Hakes are in difficulty and occupy only 16th place in the standings and have won only one of their last 8 matches. Beaten in Metz (1-3), they reacted well by winning against Reims (1-3). But then, the Morbihanais were defeated by Marseille (0-1) before sharing the points with Dijon (0-0) last week.
Opposite, FC Nantes does not achieve a dream start to the season either. With only 8 points taken in 8 days, the Canaries are only 17th in the standings and are even starting to worry their supporters. After losing against Lille (2-0) and Nice (2-1), they finally took points by winning ahead of Brest (3-1). But on the other hand, against PSG last Saturday, Christian Gourcuff’s men could not do anything and bowed quite widely (0-3).
The workforce for Lorient vs Nantes
In Lorient, the important defender Saunier, as well as the side Le Goff, and the less important Mendes and Chalobah, are all on the floor. On the other hand, the very good scorer Hamel (3 goals) is back after having served his suspension. Against Dijon, the blaster Wissa (4 goals) did not take advantage of the absence of his teammate to take the lead in the ranking of the scorers of this team.
Nantes will make the short trip without the potential holders Coulibaly and Limbombe who are still in the recovery phase. Tested positive for Covid-19, Corchia, Coulibaly, Girotto and Fabio could make their comeback just like captain Pallois who served his suspension. Discarded for contractual reasons, the young Batista Mendy should not make his return
The probable compositions for Lorient vs Nantes:
Lorient: Nardi – Hergault, Laporte, Gravillon, Morel – Boisgard, Lemoine, Abergel, Wissa – Grbic, Moffi.
Nantes: Lafont – Corchia, Castelletto, Pallois, Fabio – Abeid, Chirivella – Blas, Louza, Simon – Kolo Muani
