Lorient vs PSG Predictions, Odds, and Picks
After holding onto the top three positions in Ligue 1 for almost a third of the campaign, Lorient started to stumble, and with PSG coming to town, the stakes are high.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
The last three times these teams met, both of them scored at least a goal. Lorient has been one of the best offensive teams in the league this season, maintaining a constant threat toward the opposition's goal. PSG didn't have a positive experience the last couple of times they visited Lorient, so they will be careful how they approach this match.
Over 2.5 Goals
PSG's free-flowing football is a joy to watch, as the talent they have can allow them to mix the team every week. PSG is the best-scoring team in France which is not a surprise, they have the talent in the forward position, and with Lionel Messi playing as he used in Barcelona, things are looking positive for another big-scoring night. PSG had eight over 2.5 goal matches this season, last week they were involved in a seven-goal thriller against Troyes. Lorient is even better in that department, they played ten ‘over' matches in their 13 games played.
Key information about Lorient vs PSG
Can Lorient hold on to the home-turf advantage?
Lorient form, as one would expect, took a bit of a dive in the last three weeks. They are winless in that period, and last week lost at home to Nice after leading at half-time. Those kinds of mistakes won't be tolerated by PSG. Lorient has won four out of their six games at home, while only losing once, and that was the game against Nice. That defeat came at the worst possible time, as the team prepares to face PSG. They will hope that the visitor's coach Christophe Galtier will mix his squad a little bit after their Champions League match earlier in the week. Lorient coach Regis Le Bris faced some tough choices recently as he had some injury issues with his squad, but things are looking better.
Lorient possible lineup: Mvogo, Le Goff, Talbi, Laporte, Kalulu, Innocent, Le Bris, Ponceau, Le Fee, Diarra, Ouattara.
PSG didn't win at Lorient in their last two visit drawing last season but lost two years ago. Lorient always felt good playing at home, and with PSG having another strong season, this could be the time to change that narrative. The Parisiens only lost a single point in away games this season, two weeks ago at Reims which is one of their rare disappointing results this term. But, having a fully healthy team for this match, coach Christophe Galtier will have some options to face Lorient.
PSG's possible lineup: Donnarumma, Bernat, Kimpembe, Ramos, Mukiele, Vitinha, Verratti, Solder, Neymar, Mbappe, Ekitike.
Lorient: Samuel Loric and Laurent Abergel are injured.
PSG: No news to report.
