After failing to win in their last 3 games in the league, Paris Saint-Germain will not be happy with anything other than the three points when they host last place Lorient at the Parc des Princes in the 19th round of Ligue 1.
Paris Saint-Germain have been very inconsistent since the start of the season, leaving their favorite spot at the top of the table to Nice and Monaco for the most part of the campaign. The team have been struggling to string the wins together in recent weeks as they collected 7 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last fixture in Ligue 1 was against Guingamp away from home where they lost 2-1.
The hosts are sitting at third place in the Ligue 1 table with 36 points from 11 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 33 goals and conceded 15 since the start of the season.
Jesé Rodriguez, Hatem Ben Arfa and Thiago Motta have been dealing with minor injury issues of late and will be assessed, with the latter still essential in PSG’s 4-3-3 formation. Unai Emery may make some changes in the full-back positions against Lorient, while Lucas Moura should be involved from the off this time out.
The visitors are in a deeper trouble than the hosts as Lorient are the first candidate to relegate this season. The team have been very poor since the start of the season, however, they managed to get their act together in recent weeks losing only one game in their last 5. Lorient collected 8 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Saint-Etienne at home where they won 2-1.
Lorient are sitting at the bottom of the Ligue 1 table with 15 points from 4 wins, 3 draws and 11 losses. They scored 20 goals and conceded 33 since the start of the season.
Bernard Casoni should be able to call upon strikers Majeed Waris and Benjamin Moukandjo on Wednesday. Steven Moreira will push for a start at right-back, but the defence might be unchanged after last weekend’s win.
