        PSG vs Lorient Prediction, Tips & Stats

        Paris Saint-Germain can go one step closer to making it back-to-back Ligue 1 titles for the second time in five years when Lorient are the visitors to the Parc de Princes on Sunday.

        The Parisians have won the French top tier eight times in the last ten years, with only Monaco in 2017 and Lille in 2021 temporarily loosening PSG’s firm grip on French football in the past decade. An 11th Ligue 1 crown this season will see the Paris outfit become the most decorated team in Ligue 1, seeing them move ahead of Marseille and Saint-Etienne in terms of first-division titles.

        As many would have predicted, PSG are firmly in the driving seat with six games to go and it looks only a matter of time before they are crowned champions again. Christophe Galtier has come under scrutiny for PSG’s lacklustre showing in the Champions League, with the European title continuing to be that elusive prize as you would expect given their riches and star power. However, PSG continues to be dominant in their domestic league, with Galtier’s side currently eight points clear of second-place Marseille in Ligue 1.

        Lorient go into the weekend in a mid-table position, sitting 11th in the standings. Les Merlus were one of a few teams that were in a position to make a late charge for European football, but their form in recent weeks has seen them slip way away and any dream of clinching a spot in any European competition looks to be over. Lorient have managed to steer clear of relegation this season though, with a 13-point gap to the bottom four.

        There was potential for a slip-up from PSG after they lost two on the bounce at the end of March, but they have since regained their form to put themselves on course for the title. Galtier’s men have won three in-a-row, with victories against Nice and Lens – who were in second place at the time – before win over a desolate Angers last time out. A brace from Kylian Mbappe put the away side in front, with the hosts scoring what turned out to only be a consolation goal in the 87th minute.

        Sunday’s visitors go into the weekend in a poor form, without a win in their last five league games. In that time, Lorient have lost three including their last two back-to-back. A 3-1 defeat away to Monaco two weeks ago was followed up by another loss last weekend against Toulouse at home. Zakaria Aboukhlal scored the only goal for the away team, seeing them move up to four points behind Lorient, one place below.

        PSG Team News

        After another brace, Mbappe will lead the line again for PSG as he chases a fifth-successive Golden Boot in Ligue 1. The Frenchman has 22 goals in 28 appearances for the Parisians, with Lille’s Jonathan David hot on his tail with 21. Former Arsenal man Alexandre Lacazette isn’t far behind with 20.

        Lionel Messi got the assist for one of Mbappe’s goals last game, taking his tally to 30 goal involvements (15 goals, 15 assists) this season in Ligue 1. The Argentinian superstar will likely partner Mbappe in a two-man attack again this weekend.

        The third member of PSG’s star-studded frontline, Neymar, won’t be available again for Sunday as he continues his recovery from an ankle ligament injury that will keep the Brazilian out for the rest of the season.

        Galtier also won’t be able to call on big names such as Presnel Kimpembe who recovers an Achilles tendon rupture, Renato Sanches who is suffering with adductor problems, and Marco Verratti who will also miss the rest of the season following groin surgery. Carlos Soler, Vitinha, and Fabian Ruiz will likely continue to form the midfield in the Parisians’ 3-5-2 formation.

        Lorient Team News

        Lorient welcomed back two key players on Sunday, with Romain Faivre and Enzo Le Fee returning to the starting XI against Toulouse. Le Fee in particular has been linked with big teams across Europe and will be a key threat from midfield for Lorient. The 23-year-old and Lyon loanee Faivre will likely start behind striker Ibrahima Kone in a 3-4-2-1 set up.

        Centre-back Julien Laporte will still be absent with a knee injury, whilst Gedeon Kalulu and Theo Le Bris also remain out.
