All you need to know: Lorient-Paris Saint-Germain!

Stats, the stakes, and a little spot of history ahead of Sunday's Coupe de France tie in Brittany.

A little history...

It will be the 34th competitive meeting between Lorient and Paris Saint-Germain, who have recorded 19 wins to just eight defeats. The Parisians have won their last 10 against Lorient, and have registered seven straight wins in Lorient since the 1-1 Ligue 1 draw on 14 October, 2010, a club record level with that at Nantes, which ended last April with a 3-2 defeat.

In the three Coupe de France ties, it's always been the away team that has gone through.

Ten players have worn the shirt of both clubs: Fabrice Abriel, Grégory Bourillon, Louis Cardiet, Fabrice Fiorèse, Kevin Gameiro, Ludovic Giuly, Christophe Jallet, Ronald Le Crom, Patrice Loko and Stéphane Pédron.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored eight goals against Lorient, the most of any Paris Saint-Germain player. Pedro Miguel Pauleta is next with four.

Kevin Gamiero is the only Paris Saint-Germain player to have scored a hat-trick against Lorient, scoring all three in a 3-1 win against the side he played for between 2008 and 2011 on 26 May 2013.

The stakes...

Paris Saint-Germain would like to continue their streak against non-Ligue 1 clubs in domestic cup competitions with 23 successive triumphs since being knocked out of the Coupe de la Ligue Last 16 on 13 January 2010 by Guingamp, then in Ligue 2. The last non-L1 side to beat Paris in the Coupe de France is Rodez, who were in the third division when they won 3-1 in the Last 16 on 4 March, 2009.

The capital club has an away run to maintain too: they have scored in their last 41 away matches since the goalless draw at Caen on 19 May, 2018.

A record could also fall at Lorient: if Neymar Jr finds the net, he'll set a new club record of having scored in nine successive competitive outings.

The keys to the match...

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to continue their progress in the Coupe de France, a competition they have won a record 12 times.

The capital club could also reach the milestone of 4000 competitive goals - they are just four goals shy, and average more than four goals a game in 2020 having scored 19 times in just four competitive fixtures this year.
