Lorient vs PSG

PSG must be distraught and Unai Emery can already smell his firing papers getting ready come the end of the season, if they do not win the Ligue 1 title. Results however have helped them where Nice have dropped points; and victory tonight can get PSG to within just 3 points of Monaco which will come down to the final few weeks of the season. PSG will look to Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler who are their front 3 to deliver the goals tonight to get this team back on the winning track. Except a lot of shuffling to happen with some of the back 4 going to be changed around to give the squad some freshness and clear minds at the back. PSG have had the best defense in the division conceding just 19 goals in 28 games so far this season.

Lorient come into this game having the worst defensive record in the French Ligue 1 conceding 57 goals in 28 games played so far, which is 2 per game. Lorient have been struggling especially against some of the big sides to keep things tight at the back where they lost last week 4-1 to Marseille. They have also lost 3-0 and 4-0 to Monaco, 4-0 to Saint-Etienne along with a 5-0 loss to PSG earlier in the season. Lorient haven’t had a good time of it this season and with 6 points from safety and games against PSG tonight, Lyon, Bordeaux among their games to play; it might be difficult for them to survive the drop.
PSG have won 9 straight victories in this matchup between the 2 sides and will want to replicate that form especially since they need it to lift the spirit at the club and with their fans; so I am backing them to win this game by a 2 goal margin.PSG to win on a -1.5 Asian Handicap .
