Lorient vs PSG

Ligue 1 action in midweek sees Paris Saint-Germain - who could clinch their 12th French top-flight title on Wednesday if results go their way - travel to Brittany to face a Lorient side struggling to garner momentum in their bid to avoid the drop.

Les Parisiens have lost just one league game all season and this impressive form should give them all the belief that they can come away from Stade du Moustoir with the win, as they have done in nine of their last 11 visits here in all competitions.

The Merlucciidae are on a five-game winless run, losing four, and are three points from safety with five matches remaining, and their fortunes are unlikely to get better on Wednesday evening. Below you can find my Lorient vs PSG prediction, as well as the latest match odds and team news.

Lorient vs PSG Prediction

  • PSG to win to nil @ 7/5
  • Goncalo Ramos to score anytime @ 23/20

Team News

Lorient are without long-term absentee Quentin Boisgard, who is out for the season, while Bonke Innocent, Igor Silva, Montassar Talbi, Laurent Abergel and Bamba Dieng are also likely to miss out.

PSG look set to be without Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Rico and Layvin Kurzawa, but Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe should return after being rested for the 4-1 win over Lyon last time out.

Match Odds

PSG are the overwhelming favourites for victory at 4/11 - or a 73.3% chance - while Lorient are 7/1 to pick up a surprise win against the champions-elect and the draw is priced at 4/1.

France international Mbappe is the favourite to open the scoring at 9/4.

PSG to win to nil @ 7/5

With just two defeats on the road all season - both coming in the Champions League against AC Milan and Newcastle - it is hard to look past another victory for reigning champions PSG.

Les Parisiens have won nine of their last 10 matches on the road in all competitions and have looked a strong defensive unit throughout, keeping clean sheets in five of those encounters.

Lorient have lost their last three outings all to nil and they have managed just 35 Ligue 1 goals this term, the sixth-worst record in the division.

This lack of firepower will harm their slender chances of a result so expect a shutout victory for the visitors.

PSG to win to nil at 7-5

Goncalo Ramos to score anytime @ 23/20

Although rotation in the frontline means that he may not start, Portuguese striker Goncalo Ramos will likely feature in some capacity on Wednesday after he grabbed a brace in the weekend victory against Lyon.

The 22-year-old has netted four times in his last three top-flight appearances, taking his tally to 10 for the campaign, and he is hitting form at the business end of the season.
