Lorient vs Paris Saint Germain Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they travel to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir to take on Lorient on Sunday night. Lorient were thrashed 1-4 at home by Marseille last weekend with their consolation goal being scored by Benjamin Moukandjo in the last 20 minutes of the game. On the flip side, Paris Saint-Germain won 1-0 at home over Nancy thanks to a late penalty goal from Edinson Cavani. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m expecting Paris Saint-Germain to bounce back with a big margin victory in this one, as Lorient have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net throughout this Ligue 1 campaign. They hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 57 goals in 28 league outings. I’m also expecting PSG to keep a clean sheet in this one.

Lorient Preview

Lorient have only won two of their nine league outings after the winter break and head into this clash on the back of a six-game winless streak across all competitions. Their recent form has been terrible as they suffered defeats in each of their last five games in all competitions. During this abysmal run of form, Lorient were knocked out from the Coupe de France following a 2-1 defeat at Bordeaux. Lorient looked poor at both ends of the field over the past few weeks, conceding 13 goals and scoring just three in the process. Lorient are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just 22 points to their name after 28 league outings, six points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Lorient’s main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 57 goals in 28 rounds. Furthermore, Lorient are the joint worst home side in the division, having collected just 17 points from their 14 home league fixtures. Actually, they have won four games in a row at home between the end of November 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but they are now a four-game winless streak. Benjamin Moukandjo is a player to watch here, as the 28-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with eight goals under his belt in his 18 league appearances.

Paris Saint-Germain Preview

On the contrary, Paris Saint-Germain need a victory badly in this one after their stunning 6-1 defeat at the hands of Barcelona in midweek in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie. Les Parisiens were expected to get through to the next round after winning the first leg 4-0 at home, but they witnessed the greatest comeback ever in the Champions League knockout stage, conceding three goals in the final few minutes. The good news is that PSG are still in the Ligue 1 title race as they currently sit in second position in the standings tied on 62 points with the 3rd-placed Nice, just three points off the current leaders Monaco. Les Parisiens are currently on a ten-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, which includes a 1-0 home victory over Nancy last weekend. Away from home, PSG were on a nine-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their defeat at Barcelona in midweek. During that winning run, Paris Saint-Germain scored at least two goals in nine of those nine victories. Furthermore, PSG are undefeated in their last nine visits to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir, winning seven and drawing twice in the process.
