Lorient vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 31st January 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustair.
Lorient are in 19th place but are only 3 points from safety, though in reality because of their inferior goal difference it is 4 points.
The club did pick up 3 huge points last weekend as they beat Dijon in a 5 goal thriller which ended 3-2 to Lorient but they have only won 4 games so far.
It isn’t good news when you are about to welcome PSG but Lorient have lost 60% of their home games and have conceded almost 2 goals per game. They have also lost 2 of their last three games here and the signs do not look good for this game.
PSG are roaring under new coach Mauricio Pochettino and have won their last 3 games in a row. PSG are in 1st place with 45 points but they have Lyon right with them and on the same points and Lille are only 2 points adrift.
PSG destroyed Montpellier in Paris 4-0 last weekend and away from home the current champions have won 20 points from 30 available and PSG are 4 games unbeaten on the road.

Lorient vs PSG: Prediction
There should be no surprises here and we expect an away win of course so do the bookmakers and PSG are big odds on so we have to look into different markets.
It’s interesting to note that the last 9 meetings only one of them has seen a big PSG result when they won 5-0 and the majority of games between the sides there has only been 1 goal in it.
Kylian Mbappe scored last time out for PSG and we will back him to do so again and we will take PSG to start very fast in this game and have them winning both halves.
