    Lorient and Dijon battle it out in Ligue One relegation clash

    On Wednesday night, Lorient host Dijon in what could prove to be a pivotal clash in the race to avoid relegation from Ligue One.

    Lorient are currently rock bottom of the Ligue One table after a poor campaign so far. However, all is not yet lost for the strugglers, as they are just three points behind the visitors who occupy the relegation play-off spot, with a game in hand. A victory in this game could revive their season.

    However, victories have been in short supply of late at the bottom club, who have won just one of their previous 12 games in Ligue One. In fact, points have been hard to come by in recent weeks, as they have suffered defeat in four of their last five games, collecting just a point in the process.

    Their defensive form has been calamitous at times of late, as they have conceded at least two goals in their last five matches in Ligue One. Only two teams have conceded more goals than the home team in the French top-flight this season.

    This is a must not lose game for Dijon, who are four games unbeaten in Ligue One. However, the visitors have won just one of their last eight matches in the French top-flight.

    In fact victories have been hard to come by for the visitors, as they have won just two of their 20 Ligue One matches this season.

    Their recent league outings have been low-scoring in the French top-flight with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight matches Ligue One.

    The visitors have been hard to beat of late on their travels in the league, as they are five matches unbeaten on their travels.

    Forebet predicts that this clash will finish all square, which would be a better result for the visitors considering the two teams positions in the table.
