The league leaders will head to the Stade du Moustoir this Sunday afternoon as Lorient look to pick up the pace once more in the battle for the top three in Ligue 1 as Paris Saint-Germain aim to bounce back from Champions League disappointment.
Despite the French champions doing a fantastic job of convincing the continent on their Champions League capabilities this season, the club have now finished second in their group after a 2-1 win over Juventus because of Benfica’s goals difference record. Regardless, a win for the French giants keeps them unbeaten this season across the board, and no other side in Europe can boast of this.
Kylian Mbappe scored another magical goal that day, before Nuno Mendes sealed the deal. Now, after scoring 16 goals in the Champions League group stages and a stunning 36 in Ligue 1, PSG sit with a magnificent 52 goals scored and only 15 let in across the two campaigns.
Lorient are still flying high in fourth, and although they’ve loosened their grip on the top four with a recent three-game winless run, they still have a chance to end up in the European spots before the World Cup break. Lorient drew with Reims and Troyes in recent games, before a 2-1 loss to Nice in the past week.
PSG only narrowly defeated Troyes in their last game, conceding three of their eight goals for the season in one game. However, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Mbappe were all on the target once more.
