Lorient is welcoming PSG to Stade Ives Allainmat-Le Moustoir in round 22 in the French Ligue 1.
After 5 games without a win, and after losing 4 of those 5 games, Lorient has finally won a game last week. It was a game against Dijon last weekend for Lorient, and they were solid with 45% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. Lorient was leading in the 30th minute, but Dijon turned the game around by half time, and Lorient has found themselves behind. In the 58th minute, Lorient has tied the score, and they were even able to score a winning goal in the last minute of the match. Lorient has won this game 3-2. Even with this win, Lorient is still in the relegation zone, in the 19th place with 15 points, 23 scored goals, and 40 conceded goals, which is an average of 2 conceded goals per game. Moffi and Wissa are the leading goalscorers for Lorient with 5 goals each. Saunier, Fontaine, Nardi, Le Goff, and Diarra are all injured, while Mendes, Le Fee, Boisgard, and Lemoine are all still questionable for this game. Lorient is close to the safe zone in the Ligue 1 standings, but their game doesn’t give them the confidence to get there before the season is over.
PSG hasn’t lost any of their last 8 games, and they are on a 4-game winning streak. Just over 2 weeks ago PSG was playing against Marseille in the French Super Cup, and they have won that game 2-1, and their first trophy of the season. in their last 2 games, PSG has been fantastic on both ends, and they have scored 5 goals while conceding 0 goals. PSG is in second place in the standings with 45 points, 48 scored goals, and only 11 conceded goals, but they are only 1 point away from the top, and they have a game less played. PSG was hosting Montpellier last weekend, and they were the dominant team with a massive 72% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 7 big chances created, and a solid 89% of the correct passes. Montpellier didn’t stand a chance in this game, and with one scored goal in the first half, and 3 scored goals in 3 minutes in the second half, PSG have won this match 4-0. Bernat, Herrera, Marquinhos, Diallo, and Verratti are all injured, while Navas is still questionable for this match. Mbappe has scored 14 goals and added 6 assists for PSG, while Kean added 9 goals. PSG is definitely the best team in France, but the gap between them and other teams is not as big as it was in previous season, and PSG will need to keep playing well if they want to win another title this season.
Lorient hasn’t won any of their last 12 games against PSG, while PSG hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games on the road. This one is a no brainer for me. PSG is the better team here, in better form, and with better players in every positions. I’m taking PSG.
