Lorient, after a good start this season, have already settled in the red zone. In the last 10 rounds, the team cannot win and managed to score only 2 points. It is interesting, but with all the weak tournament positions, the defense of the outsider does not allow the opponents to threaten the goal much, on average 10.6 shots (at home), which is not enough for a team from the relegation zone. However, these strikes are often accurate, and in recent games, victorious. At the same time, the attack is very weak in creativity, on average 9.6 hits, and this is the worst home result in Ligue 1.
“PSG” is racing towards the championship at full speed. Of course, sometimes there are losses of points, but against the background of an impressive gap, these misfires do not affect anything. As before, the Parisians’ attack is strong and capable of squeezing any opponent, if there is some courage. However, today there are many passes in front and center of the field. It is necessary to highlight Mbappe, Neymar and Verratti. In general, “PSG” away on average inflicts 12.8 hits, while the defense allows 12.7.
Lorient’s home tours are rarely over-attacked. Unsurprisingly, no match at Stade le Mustoir has had more than 25 shots. Although there were quite strong opponents like Rennes (leader in shots), Lille (champion), strong Nice and Monaco. Most likely, Lorient will have to hold back the guests’ attacks most of the time, otherwise the defeat cannot be avoided. In general, I’m not expecting the most spectacular match, so I’m more inclined towards the grassroots scenario in terms of shots.
