PSG vs Lorient Predictions

Ligue 1 Kick-off: PSG’s Title Ambitions Tested by Rising Lorient

Key Stats
– PSG narrowly secured the Ligue 1 title last season with a mere point over Lens.
– Lorient’s ascent in Ligue 1 is evident with their jump from two consecutive 16th-place finishes to 10th place last season.
– PSG’s defensive vulnerability was exposed last season, conceding 40 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain embarks on their quest for their 10th Ligue 1 crown in 12 seasons, and they kick things off at home, facing Lorient. The managerial carousel at PSG saw another change this summer as Christophe Galtier left after a single season, even after securing another Ligue 1 title. As Luis Enrique steps up to helm PSG, expectations are high for the ex-Barcelona and Spain coach to continue the club’s illustrious tradition.

Over the past few years, PSG’s managerial changes have been rapid – with Enrique being the fifth in line since 2018. The pressure remains constant, as Enrique is expected to clinch titles during his tenure. PSG’s previous season didn’t showcase their usual dominance. They scraped through with just a point above second-place Lens. When the lens is adjusted, we notice Lens only suffered four losses and conceded merely 29 goals. These statistics make PSG’s conquest of their fifth title in six seasons all the more admirable.

Uncertainties surrounding the future of PSG’s star players like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have cast a shadow over Parc des Princes. Yet, the team remains the favourite to conquer Ligue 1.

Lorient’s Steady Ascent Since their ascent to Ligue 1 in 2019-20, Lorient have been a team to watch. Under the leadership of Regis Le Bris, they achieved an admirable 10th-place finish last season. Their evolution is evident as they transitioned from consecutive 16th-place finishes to reaching the upper echelons of the league.

Their pre-season form gives their fans a reason for optimism. Despite a 2-0 loss to Bournemouth, where they failed to register a shot on target, they remain positive about the season ahead. Their confidence is further boosted by their recent 3-1 victory against PSG.

Team News and Transfers Mbappe’s contract saga ensures he won’t be seen this weekend, and Neymar is also likely to be absent. Injury woes plague PSG with Mendes, Mukiele, and Rico unavailable. Kurzawa’s participation remains uncertain after a long hiatus. The void left by Messi’s departure was filled with significant signings like Ugarte, Hernandez, Skriniar, Asensio, and the addition of Ramos from Benfica on loan.

Lorient, too, made waves in the transfer market with the likes of Mendy, Tosin, and Sylla. Injuries sideline Boisgard and put Mouyokolo’s participation in doubt.


1. Match Outcome: Draw. Despite PSG’s dominance in Ligue 1, their uncertain start and the absence of their star players give Lorient a chance. Given Lorient’s impressive pre-season form and their recent victory against PSG, a draw seems plausible.

2. Correct Score: 2-2. Given the offensive capabilities of both teams and considering their defensive vulnerabilities last season, a 2-2 draw is a realistic prediction.

3. Goalscorer: Ahmadou Bamba Dieng (Lorient). With 4 goals last season and one against PSG in their previous meet, Dieng stands out as a potential scorer for Lorient.
