Paris Saint Germain vs Lille: Prediction and Betting Tips
Paris Saint Germain to maintain their lead at the top
It has been a crazy season in the French Ligue 1, to say the least. PSG have taken back the lead at the top of the table in the last round after Lille lost at home and PSG won away in Lyon.This match might decide the identity of this season’s champion as both teams are battling neck and neck.
Interestingly, in the last five matches in Ligue 1, PSG have lost two of their home matches and won their three away matches. Coach Mauricio Pochettino knows his team can’t afford a third defeat at home in a row. The Argentine must find the reasons why his team has conceded four goals in their last two home matches.
PSG had their scoring appetite on in their last match in Lyon as they scored four goals past the League’s third-best defense. PSG have scored 9 goals in their last three away matches. Pochettino would want his team to be on that scoring form this Saturday.
Lille need to bounce back quickly
Lille have lost their lead at the top of the French Ligue 1 table after a dip in form in their last two matches earning just one point from their last two games(1L-1D). Moreover, Lille lost to PSG in the Coupe de France ⅛ finals by 3-0 and were eliminated by Ajax from the Europa League.
This is the closest Lille have come to winning the Ligue 1 title since 2011. Coach Christophe Galtier doesn’t want to miss this chance but in order to keep battling for the top spot his attackers need to find the back of the net more often as they have scored just one goal in their last three matches in all competitions.
In their last match, Lille lost at home to 18th placed Nimes in a surprise result which cost them their top spot. Coach Galtier’s team completely dominated the game with 73% possession and 15 goal attempts but could score just one goal.
- Paris SG have lost their last two home matches
- Paris SG have scored 13 goals in their last six home games
- Lille have won seven of their last eight away matches
- Lille have scored in seven of their last eight away matches
Paris Saint Germain vs Lille Prediction
PSG are firm favorites to win this match with the bookies at 1.65 while a Lille win returns 5.50. The stats are against PSG though as they have lost their last two home matches, while Lille are unbeaten away from home in nine matches.
But stats don’t win matches as they say and PSG beat Lille in the Coupe de France 3-0 and are capable of repeating that win. In the last 12 matches between these two clubs, Lille have won just once while PSG won nine times. We think PSG have more experience and a stronger squad thus we will back a PSG win.
