Saint Etienne look to move back to fifth in the league table when they face Lorient in the early Ligue 1 game on Sunday. Lorient themselves are in a major relegation battle and are just sitting above the relegation zone now. jordan ayew is the key men up front for Lorient with Jeannat an able accomplice up front. Lorient though have struggled majorly on the away games and have lost four of their last five away from home. But overall Lorient's form has been much better of late losing just one of their last five including two wins and two draws.
Saint Etienne have been one of the surprise packages of the season and have lost just two league games at home all season. With a trio of Erdinc, Gradel and Van Wolfswinkel there is plenty of attacking talent up front for St Etienne but they havent quite been firing on all cylinders. With Gradel the top scorer in the team with six goals it is obvious that St Etienne are getting by on their strong defence. This is a winnable game for Saint Etienne but also one that is tricky.
I am going to take Saint Etienne to get the win here, I think their strong defence will be able to hold Lorient and with Gradel the key man up front I think Saint Etienne can get the win.
