Lille OSC - FC Lorient

Six matches without defeat, advance to the eight-finals Coupe de France, it is the current balance of Lille, which at present form certainly can not complain. Gradually climbs above the table and trying at all costs to correct botched pretty decent fall. Last Lorient would not even now have to stand in their way.

In the north of France are getting used to the new leadership, anyway, the work is still only temporary coach Patrick Collot this change certainly had no effect. Maybe a week ago, his team managed to shock the outside Lyon and just a few days later to ensure progress to the next phase of the Cup home victory over Nantes unpleasant.

The owner of the club and also the new president Gérard Lopez had at the end of transfer window period, the mobile phone seems constantly in his ear. Now LOSC was the winter transfer market the most active across France, and especially in the last days and hours. Once out of the nejednomu fan Dog had tangled head.

Perhaps the most striking is certainly strengthens the Dutch striker Anwar El Ghazi, who in the past three seasons was one of the pillars of Ajax. Now he is also perhaps the hottest candidate to debut in new jersey already against Lorient. On the contrary, the club went Younousse Sankhara, Mounir Obbadi or Morgan Amalfitano.

Collot in the next few days certainly does not expect an easy job, new players must know as quickly as possible, so he did not have a wasted Result slump. A week ago in Lyon by the way his eyes shone with happiness. "Not even in my wildest dreams we have imagined that we would win. But the points we needed to move an inch in the table," assessed.

Lorient I think like your opponent plays eight-finals Coupe de France, he managed to bring down the outside Chateauroux after overtime. However, the league still can not dig out of the relegation zone. For the last four rounds he fell three times, most recently at home to Dijon. "We're not mentally strong enough," to name the reasons for the failure of coach Bernard Casoni.
