Paris Saint-Germain visit FC Lorient in Ligue 1 on Wednesday for their final opener of 2021 with a provisional 13-point lead at the Championnat summit. The hosts had to go through a late period as Les Merlus fell into one of two automatic relegation positions after eight defeats in their last nine matches. Meanwhile, Les Parisiens have won six of their last nine in the French top flight and will want to ensure that nasty rivals Olympique de Marseille cannot close the gap to less than 10 points with the match in hand.

PSG: PSG say Neymar will return to training in about a month while Juan Bernat, Layvin Kurzawa, Colin Dagba & Julian Draxler will also be out after the winter break. Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti are suspended while Sergio Ramos trains despite being substituted at half-time in last weekend’s Coupe de France win.
FCL: Eight defeats from nine Ligue 1 games without a win since September and one loss in the Coupe de France, it wouldn’t be surprising if Christophe Pellissier was substituted during the brief winter break in the unlikely event of a win.
PSG: It should be a smooth end to the year with Coupe de France duty continuing to be expected into early 2022 with Vannes OC to help Pochettino’s men prepare for a trip to Lyon, their next clash them in Ligue 1 later.
This will be a simple win for Les Parisiens. Their chances of getting a high score are significant despite a few absences. Lorient’s confusing synthetic throw could lead to some rotation from Pochettino. Pick: FCL 1-4 PSG.
