Paris Saint Germain vs Lorient Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they welcome Lorient at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night. Paris Saint-Germain were beaten 2-1 on the road against Guingamp at the weekend; even though Edinson Cavani got on the scoresheet once again. On the contrary, Lorient managed an important 2-1 home victory over ten-men Saint-Etienne, with Romain Philippoteaux and Jimmy Cabot scoring the goals for Bernard Casoni’s team. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Paris Saint-Germain Preview

The winter break isn’t even here yet, and Paris Saint-Germain already suffered their 4th defeat of this Ligue 1 season at the weekend, losing 2-1 on the road at Guingamp. This means that PSG are currently in 3rd position in the standings, four points behind the current leaders Nice, who have a game in hand. Coach Unai Emery was defiant after this poor performance, insisting that he still has the support of Paris Saint-Germain’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. The Spaniard also insisted that the championship lasts 38 games and he would turn it around. Emery could only be blamed for his poor incomprehensible decision to use Blaise Matuidi for the attack at the expense of Lucas Moura, Jese or Hatem Ben Arfa. The single positive to come out of a thoroughly negative game was Marco Verratti’s continuous return to form and Edinson Cavani’s unbelievable start to the season. Cavani has been excellent so far this season as he is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 17 goals from his 16 appearances in Ligue 1. The good news is that Paris Saint-Germain are unbeaten in front of their own fans this season, winning nine and drawing five in 14 home fixtures across all competitions.

Lorient Preview

Lorient had a disappointing start to this Ligue 1 campaign, but it appears that they have found some consistency recently. Lorient have only lost once in their last five games in Ligue 1 while winning two in the process. They enter the fray on the back of a 2-1 home win over St. Etienne, scoring a goal in each half while the visitors scored a consolation goal in the stoppage time. Despite the win, Lorient still stand in 19th place in the Ligue 1 table tied on 15 points with the bottom-placed Caen. Lorient looked incredibly strong in front of goal over the past few weeks, scoring at least two goals in each of their last five games in Ligue 1. However, keeping the ball out of the net has been Lorient’s main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 33 goals in 18 league games. Their away form has also been a problem, as Lorient are winless in their last 14 away fixtures in all competitions, losing eleven and drawing three in the process. Furthermore, Lorient are winless in their last four visits to the Parc des Princes, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Benjamin Moukandjo is Lorient’s topscorer at the moment with 7 goals in his 14 league appearances.

Paris Saint-Germain Team News

Thiago Motta, Jese, Hatem Ben Arfa and Javier Pastore are all doubts, but Adrien Rabiot is out through injury.

Lorient Team News

Faiz Selemanie, Abdul Majeed Waris and Ibrahima Sory Conte are all doubts, but Benjamin Lecomte is missing through a thigh injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although they have struggled recently, Paris Saint-Germain remain a strong side in front of their own fans. Les Parisiens are unbeaten in 22 home fixtures in all competitions and haven’t lost a single game in their four home meetings with Lorient. I’m expecting PSG to grab all three points here, but for more value, I’m also fancying them to score a couple of goals.
