PSG should get back to winning ways in this duel against Lorient. Losing 3-0 to AS Monaco was shocking, especially in a game that has Neymar, Mbappe and Wijnaldum in attacking positions. Even with the introduction of Icardi in the 69th minute to replace Wijnaldum, little improvement was noticed. However, after the international Pochettino’s men should come back stronger and more focused, hoping to bag the crown with a few games to spare. We have tipped the Parisians to win the first half in this game with Lionel Messi expected back in the starting 11.
Mbappe to score anytime
Mbappe is on course to another golden boot. He currently has 15 goals, two less than top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder of Monaco. Backing Mbappe to score in this game is premised on his latest performances. The 23-year-old forward scored in six of the last seven Ligue 1 games. He is the leading scorer for PSG and is expected to be among the attacking front in this important game against Lorient.
