Paris Saint-Germain will look to take the next step in retaining their Ligue 1 title when they host mid-table Lorient on Sunday.
2023 has been a year to forget for PSG so far, having suffered eight defeats in all competitions coupled with their annual premature exit from the UEFA Champions League. There’ll be no Coupe de France triumph either, but the Paris side do boast an eight-point lead at the top of Ligue 1.
A run of five games without a win has seen Lorient drop down to 11th in France’s top flight, having only been a point behind PSG in early October after a blistering start.
Paris Saint-Germain team news
Marco Verratti managed to come off the bench in the win over Angers and may start in midfield for the first time since the 1-0 defeat to Lyon at the start of the month.
Aside from that change, the starting XI will likely be similar to the one that secured a third successive Ligue 1 victory. Neymar, Presnel Kimpembe and Nordi Mukiele won’t play again this season, though Renato Sanches and Nuno Mendes are expected to return before the season is out.
Paris Saint-Germain predicted lineup vs Lorient
(3-5-2): Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Ramos, Pereira; Hakimi, Ruiz, Verratti, Vitinha, Bernat; Messi, Mbappe.
Lorient predicted lineup vs Paris Saint-Germain
(3-4-3): Mvogo; Meite, Talbi, Le Goff; Kalulu, Abergerl, Innocent, Yongwa; Faivre, Dieng, Le Fee.
