Saint Etienne made a flying start to the season but they will need to get things back on track after three defeats in their last four matches. Despite an ability to score goals, their defence has proved to be something of an Achilles heel and they have been guilty of surrendering a number of late goals. Having lost against Toulose in such circumstances, they somehow come away with just one point against Bastia as they conceded twice in the last ten minutes of play. The French League Cup champions are set to face Paris St Germain next week, and with that team undefeated in their last 20 Ligue 1 matches, they cannot afford to be dropping points on Sunday.
Lorient have found life tough when away from Stade Yves Allainmat, and they have an unenviable record of losing their last seven away fixtures in Ligue 1. Outplayed by Bastia in their latest defeat, and with just one goal scored in five games on their travels, they come into this fixture as distinct outsiders. Among their more well known players is Jeremie Aladiere and the former Arsenal and Middlesborough striker has scored once in his two appearances this term. The Brittany-based club didn’t do much in the way of business during the summer so a number of players will be looking to impress the management ahead of the merry-go-round that is the winter transfer window.

The sides met four times last season with three victories going the way of Lorient and the other ending with a Saint Etienne victory on penalties. Recent history suggests a strong likelihood of goals and as both managers come into the game with something to prove, a draw would not be a considered a favourable result by either club.
