This is our Lorient vs. Caen preview and prediction for this French Ligue 1 match. Lorient are 17th in the League and in a relegation battle. Losing their last 2 matches hasn’t helped. They have won 3 of their last 6 home matches. They will be desperate for points here, because if Toulouse win at bottom club Lens, and Lorient don’t even get a point, Lorient will find themselves in the relegation zone. Caen are in 14 place, just 5 points clear of the relegation zone. They have turned things around in recent weeks and this has seen them claw their way away from the bottom. However they are not safe yet and will want 3 points from this match.
