PSG are in excellent form in their league. In fact, they are currently on top of the league table and they have not lost any game in Ligue 1 after thirteen matches played so far, with 11 victories and two draws. David Luiz (7/0 d), Di Maria (9/4 m), Verratti (10/0 m), Pastore (8/1 m) and Lavezzi (12/2 f) will likely miss out.
On paper, Paris St Germain have the better team but I think this match is tricky and the hosts have a very good chance of getting something out of this game. Many PSG players were involved in international games and they will likely be tired after a long journey.
Moreover, Paris has recently witnessed terrorist attacks which have greatly affected the morale of the players. In fact, some players like Javier Pastore (unfit to play) and Sirigu have lost dear ones in the bomb blasts and most of the players in the squad who are a bit traumatized and still living with fear might not be in the right state of mind to play this game.
Laurent Blanc (PSG coach) said the following words in his pre-match press conference: "The situation is very difficult and all our players have been affected psychologically and it's going to be hard to play football this weekend."
In this context, I think Lorient can get a positive result in this game and even if PSG lose or draw, they will still be at the top of the league table.
