Significant changes have taken place at PSG this summer, as forward Lionel Messi left, Luis Enrique became head coach, and Kylian Mbappe was removed from the team altogether.
In addition, striker Ousmane Dembele should soon join the Parisians, who can partially close Mbappe’s position, but in any case, in the match against Lorient, PSG will be considered the undisputed favorite.
The team played 5 friendlies this summer, in which PSG did not play very well. First, the team lost to Cerezo Osaka (2:3), and then to Inter Milan (1:2). In the last friendly match, PSG defeated Jeonbuk Motors (3:0)
Last season, Lorient was a solid midfielder in Ligue 1, but this year the club will certainly try to climb above the 10th line. Immediately from the 1st round, the team will have to fight with the main rival of the French championship.

As you know, in the 33rd round of the last season of Ligue 1, Lorient already beat PSG on its own field (3:1).
