Lorient vs PSG
Coupe de France

Kick off at 19:55 UK/ 20:55 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustoir.

We should witness a very interesting game when Lorient take on PSG in the round of 32 in the French Cup.

Lorient are top of Ligue 2 and PSG are of course top of Ligue 1, that is quite unique, and Lorient’s ground will be a big sell out when the champions of France arrive.

In Ligue 2 Lorient have won 13 of their 20 games and at home they have won 70% of their matches losing twice here. They have won their last four games in a row.

PSG of course need no introduction and they garnered some respect in the league games for playing full strength sides. So unless there is a late change players such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe should play.

PSG usually win this competition although Rennes won last year and PSG will want to claim their title back. In Ligue 1 PSG has the best away record where they have won 24 points from a possible 30, hey have won 80% of their games.

Lorient vs PSG: Head to Head

The last time the teams played here was in 2017 when PSG won 2-1.

Lorient have not beaten PSG since 2011.

There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Lorient vs PSG: Prediction

PSG are big odds on as expected to win this and Lorient can be backed at around 12.00. The Ligue 2 side will start this game proudly and that is why we think the game will not be over in the first half, go with more goals in the 2nd half of play.

Check PSG’s team line up, if it is strong then get on them to win with a -1 goal start as that would represent really good value. As this game goes on Lorient are going to find it very difficult to stay focused and see it out. Surely PSG will ease to a win here.

Lorient vs PSG: Bet Tips:

  • PSG to beat Lorient with a -1 goal start at 1.72 (8/11)
  • Highest Scoring Half: 2nd half at 2.00 (1/1).
