PSG vs Lorient
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
It’s possible that PSG never believed that this season would be so difficult, but it has been and is unlike previous ones for the current champions.
After 14 games PSG are not in 1st which is the surprise but in 3rd place although they are only one point behind both Lille and Lyon. But PSG may have lost some of their fear in Paris as they were beaten for the 2nd time at home this season at the weekend when they lost 1-0 against Lyon.
PSG did not play well and there is a worry within the team and now the media will be attacking the coach Thomas Tuchel but the season is still very much open.
Recent form isn’t good for the champions though who have won just once in their last four games, and this form is very unlike them.
Lorient are in 17th place with 11 points and only goal difference is keeping them from being in the bottom three. However last weekend the club ended a 4 game losing streak by beating Nimes 3-0.
The problem Lorient have who are new comers to the league this season is that they have the worst away record in Ligue 1 with just 1 win this season and four points earned from 21. This is not a good record when your next game is away to PSG.
PSG vs Lorient: Head to Head
- The last league game took place in Paris in 2016 when PSG beat Lorient 5-0.

- Lorient’s last victory over PSG was 9 years ago.
PSG vs Lorient: Prediction
On their day and when they are at home Lorient are not a bad side, but if they were to even get a draw here it would be seen as a big shock.
PSG need to bounce back and they can use this game to do so and they have the quality like a wounded animal to strike back. Not only should they win we should expect that they score a few goals also and these will be the markets we will be looking into.
This game is set to be a long and hard one for Lorient who will defend deep in numbers but we can see them conceding early and the floodgates may open.
