Lorient vs Paris Saint-Germain: Prediction and Betting Tips
Lorient trying to get out of a very deep hole
Lorient’s season can be divided into two parts so far. To explain, in the first nine rounds of the campaign, Les Merlus lost just one match and had 14 points. However, defeats started to mount on and Lorient haven now lost their last seven matches. Moreover, they are winless in 11 games making them the team with the worst spell in Ligue 1.
With a scoring average of 0.78 goals per game (14 goals in 19 matches), Lorient don’t seem to have the attacking prowess to trouble the other Ligue 1 teams. In fact, coach Christophe Pelissier’s team scored two goals in a match just twice all season. With that in mind, how hard will it be for Les Merlus to cause a major surprise against PSG?
Paris Saint-Germain in a relatively easy away trip
The number one candidates to win the Ligue 1 PSG come into this match on the back of a nine-match undefeated run. In fact, Les Parisien suffered just one defeat all season away to Rennes. Notably, PSG are comfortably leading the Ligue 1 table with 13 points over their closest pursuers Marseille who have a match in hand.
Surely some analysts expected much more dominance from PSG in their matches. Especially with that deadly attacking line-up of Messi Mbappe and Neymar. However, Les Parisien’s biggest win this season was over Clermont 4-0. Other than that, PSG won their recent matches by at most two goals. Moreover, they have only two clean sheets in the last seven matches which shows coach Pocchetino’s defense’s vulnerability.
Lorient vs Paris Saint-Germain Prediction
Undoubtedly, PSG are the overwhelming favorites to win this match with bookies paying 1.38. Surely, Pocchetino will urge his men not to underestimate their opponents as this kind of match can be dangerous.
As for Lorient, the only thing they can do is defend, concede as few goals as possible and get Messi’s jersey!! Nevertheless, there is a tendency to see goals in this match and the bookies expect over 2.5.
In conclusion, we think it will be a matter of how many will PSG score rather than anything else. Hence we will back for Les Parisiens to score over two goals. As for our second prediction, we will choose under 3.5 goals combined with a double chance outcome.
