Team news

PSG: Marco Verratti, Abdou Diallo, Julian Draxler, Keylor Navas, Ander Herrera, Juan Bernat, Layvin Kurzawa and Angel Di Maria are all out, while Sergio Ramos could make a rare appearance.

“We were very poor against AS Monaco,” said Pochettino pre-match. “We were not good at all. Most of the players were impacted by the international break. This is no excuse, but it must be considered. There are some niggles since the internationals.”

Lorient: Bonke Innocent is the main absentee through suspension, but Fabien Lemoine, Enzo Le Fee and Quentin Boisgard are all included in the squad.

Storylines

PSG: After their heavy loss to AS Monaco, the Ligue 1 leaders’ advantage has been cut to 12 points. Not enough to put their title hopes in jeopardy, but enough to start worrying them about losing further points. Despite their absences, Pochettino’s men should have enough to see off a  side which has just about kept its head above water so far this season.

Lorient: Christophe Pelissier’s men have lost just two of their last seven with three wins and two draws in that time to give themselves hope of survival. However, the Bretons are unlikely to be targeting anything substantial from this visit to the capital with survival points to be found in other upcoming fixtures such as AS Saint-Etienne and FC Metz at home.

Prediction

If PSG are in the mood to apply themselves, they should win easily. If not, Lorient could come away with a point or better. Given home advantage, it should be a straightforward enough win for Les Parisiens.

Pick: PSG 3, Lorient 0
