          The title race is all but decided* as PSG look to just extend their lead as much as possible in the tail end of the season. Lorient, however, are in desperate need of three points to get themselves out of the relegation zone.

          Lorient currently sit 17th in Ligue 1 after 17th after 29 games. Les Merlus have six wins, eight draws and 15 losses, leaving them on 26 points, three points from safety.

          Les Merlus have been inconsistent in front of goal this season, scoring 35 goals in 29 games, an average of 1.21 goals a game. Lorient have struggled even more at the other end of the pitch, conceding 55 goals and keeping just three clean sheets.

          PSG, on the other hand, currently sit top of the Ligue 1 table. In 29 games, The Parisians have 19 wins, nine draws and one loss which leaves them on 66 points, 11 points above second place Monaco.

          The Parisians have the best scoring record in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 69 goals in 29 games which gives them an average of 2.38 goals a game. PSG have been a little less consistent defensively, conceding 25 goals and keeping 11 clean sheets.

          Lorient and PSG have met 36 times in their histories. PSG have the better record in the fixture with 21 wins in comparison to Lorient’s eight wins, with the other seven games ending in a draw.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen PSG pick up two wins, Lorient pick up a win and two draws. Four of the last five games have seen both sides on the scoresheet, other than the two draws, the other three games have seen at least three goals and up to six goals.

          After a goalless first half, Nicolas Tagliafico and Mama Blade both scored in the second half to give Lyon the 2 - 0 win, with Lorient having nine shots but not a single one of those shots were on target.

          A trip to the Principality saw an own goal from Wilfried Singo give Lorient the lead in the first minute. Another own goal, this time from Formose Mendy got Monaco level before halftime and a goal from Youssouf Fofana on the hour mark gave Monaco the lead. Both sides had a player sent off in the last ten minutes, Denis Zakaria for Monaco and Tosin Aiyegen for Lorient. However a 95th minute goal from Tiemoue Bakayoko grabbed a 2 - 2 draw for Lorient.

          Lorient had more of the shots on target against Brest with five, but Lorient were unable to convert any of these to goals. Romain Del Castillo scored the only goal of the game in the 86th minute to give ten-man Brest the 1 - 0 win, with Billal Brahimi sent off in extra time.

          The trip to Montpellier saw Lorient again unable to get on the scoresheet. A penalty from Teji Tedy Savanier gave Montpellier the lead early in the second half and Yann Karamoh secured the 2 - 0 win for Montpellier with his goal in the final minute of normal time.

          The last time out for Lorient was against Nice. Morgan Sanson gave Nice the 1 - 0 lead at halftime and an own goal from Isaak Toure doubled the lead. Evann Guessand added another late on to give Nice the 3 - 0 win.

          In their last five games in all competitions, PSG have three wins, one draw and one loss.

          Back in Ligue 1, PSG welcomed Clermont Foot. Habib Keita scored just after the 30 minute mark to give Clermont Foot the shock 1 - 0 lead at halftime. PSG finally managed to convert one of their 23 shots as Goncalo Ramos found the back of the net in the 85th minute to grab a 1 - 1 draw for PSG.

          The first leg of the Champions League Quarter Final saw PSG host Barcelona. Raphinha gave Barcelona the 1 - 0 lead at the break but a two minute period early in the second half Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha both scored to put PSG in the lead. However, another goal from Raphinha and a goal from Andreas Christensen gave Barcelona the 3 - 2 win.

          In the second leg of the Champions League Quarter Final, PSG were in Spain. Raphinha opened the scoring again for Barcelona but the sending off of Ronald Araujo turned the tide. Goals from Dembele and Vitinha and a brace from Mbappe gave PSG the 4 - 1 win, and a 6 - 4 win on aggregate.
