PSG took another step toward successfully defending their Ligue 1 title last weekend, as they recorded a third straight win. They will be looking to go further clear at the top of the standings this weekend when they welcome Lorient to the French capital.
Ligue 1 Preview
It hasn’t been a season without its problems for PSG, but they remain comfortable at the top of the Ligue 1 standings with six games remaining. The Parisians currently hold an eight point advantage over the chasing pack, and they come into this fixture on Sunday having won each of their last three. It has been a strong response by the leaders, as they have recovered excellently after losing two on the bounce.
PSG produced a battling display last weekend, as they registered a 2-1 win on the road against relegation-threatened Angers. Kylian Mbappe was the star of the show, as the Frenchman scored both goals in the straightforward success. However, they will need to be defensively solid this weekend, as they can ill-afford to hand Lorient the same number of chances as they did in their previous match.
Lorient is one of a number of sides in Ligue 1 with little left to play for this season, as they sit middle of the standings with six games remaining. They hold a healthy 13 point advantage over the relegation places, while they look unlikely to make a late charge for a European spot.
The visitors come into this showdown having failed to win in their previous five matches, while they were handed a third defeat in four outings in their last match. Their most recent loss was suffered at home against Toulouse, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat last Sunday.
PSG vs Lorient Head to Head
PSG comes into this game having gone three without defeat against Lorient. They have also won each of their last two against their rivals this weekend. Their most recent win was picked up in the reverse fixture, as they claimed a 2-1 away success back in November.
PSG vs Lorient Prediction
It looks incredibly hard to oppose PSG this weekend, as they have picked up their form impressively in recent weeks. This should be a straightforward fixture for the French champions, and we could see PSG claiming a 3-0 home win.
