Lorient vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: 6 November 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Yves-Allainmat – Le Moustoir (Lorient).

PSG could be seriously tested on Sunday when they travel to Stade Yves-Allainmat to take on fourth-placed Lorient in one of the most exciting ties of Gameweek No 14 in Ligue 1.

Les Parisiens are five points clear atop the league standings with 11 wins and 2 draws in 13 matches so far in the season.

They have scored an amazing 36 goals in the process, or in translation almost three goals per game, this term.

Lorient, on the other side, dropped to fourth place after an unexpected 1-2 home defeat to Nice last weekend.

Regis Le Bris’ men took just two points in the previous three league affairs. They suddenly started leaking goals, shipping two in each of the previous two rounds.

Lorient did not look good defensively at all last weekend against Nice, allowing the rivals 17 attempts on the home patch.

They are now up against by far the deadliest attacking line in the country. Although PSG will likely be without injured Neymar, the likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe should be able to exploit Lorient’s leaky back line without too many problems.

Messi has been particularly impressive of late. He bagged a stunner in the 4-3 win over Troyes last Saturday.

Lorient vs PSG Head-to-head

  • PSG bagged five goals in a 5-1 drubbing of Lorient in the teams’ previous head to head encounter.
  • However, Lorient were undefeated in PSG’s previous two visits, claiming four points in the process.
  • Both outfits were on target in each of the previous three head to head matches between these rivals.

Lorient vs PSG Prediction

PSG to win & Both Teams To Score is the standout betting option based on everything we have seen so far in the season from these two teams as well as their recent head to head record.

PSG are capable of hauling against any team in the division and Lorient’s back line did not look promising at all in the recent matches, especially in the last weekend’s home loss to Nice. We will also take the 2.25 odds offered for Lionel Messi to score anytime on Sunday.
