Last season was full of anticipation as PSG were crowned the league champions as they finished with a one-point lead against their rivals Lens. In the last few weeks, the club departed ways with their main signing Lionel Messi. As a result, their performances during friendly games dipped. Now their objective remains the same this season and they will face their rivals Reims on matchday one.
At the same time, Lorient lost only one friendly game against Bournemouth recently. They finished tenth on the table with a decent winning record.
The past records show that PSG have won two of the last three meetings against this team. These two teams last met back in April and the visitors won that game by scoring three goals. On this ground, PSG have won six of the last seven meetings against this opposition.
PSG have made several changes to their new squad for this upcoming season. They changed their team manager three times in the last two years. Luis Enrique is an experienced manager and looking at the past results at Parc des Princes we can back PSG to seal all three points in their season opener against Lorient.
The hosts recently scored three goals against Jeonbuk in a friendly game. On the other hand, Lorient have scored plenty of goals in their friendly games starting in July. Therefore, it will be wise to back over 3.5 goals criteria for this game.
