Lorient - OL: Les Gones against the promoted sides

Lorient - OL : Les Gones face aux promus
On Sunday, OL play their first match of the season against one of the two promoted clubs in making a trip to Lorient (5 p.m.). Historically, the club have always done well against the league's newcomers.

In Ligue 1 since 1989-90, OL have been among the constants of the French league. Only PSG have a longer spell in the top flight (since 1974). Thus, Les Gones have seen a very large number of teams come and go between Ligue 1 and the second division. While it can sometimes be difficult to beat a team you don't know very well, Jean-Michel Aulas' club has always managed to do well in these matches.

In the last ten seasons, OL have played 55 games against the promoted sides, for a record of 35 wins, 7 draws and only 13 losses. Paradoxically, only two seasons have seen the club finish undefeated against the promoted sides: during the 2011-12 season (four wins, two draws) and last season (two wins, one draw). Only one of these teams has managed to defeat the Rhone side twice in a season, AS Monaco in 2013-14 (2-1, 2-3). After a sluggish start to the season, there are therefore plenty of reasons for hope for Sunday's trip to the Moustoir.
