Saturday afternoons game in Ligue 1 will see second placed PSG travel to Lorient. PSG have started to put a run together in both the league and Europe. Still unbeaten this season in all competitions the only reason PSG are in second is because they have had too many draws. In the absence of their talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is out through injury, Edison Cavani, Lucas Moura and Lavezzi have stepped up to the mark and all contributed in the big Swedes absence. Tomorrow will be a tough away game Lorient wont just roll over especially as the club sit just above the relegation zone and even this early in the season no one wants to be in that position.
PSG manager Laurent Blanc will plan for the fast counter attack from Lorient as the pacey Ayew and Lavigne will be dangerous on the counter attack. But with Thiago Silva and David Luiz back in the center half partnership PSG should have the pace to deal with Lorients attack. Not a game that I am crazy about but I do have a grwing admiration for what PSG are doing. Together as a unit they look impressive and they turned over Barcelona very easily and could have won by far more than the 3-2 scoreline it finished. I am going to take PSG -1 on the handicap, I think Lucas, Cavani and Lavezzi may just get themselves a couple of goals that will be enough to cover the handicap with Silva and Luiz at the back.
