PSG – Lille, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PSG - LILLE
PSG won again with a clean sheet in the last round against Olympique Marseille in a visit, proving again it is very likely for them to be the champions in the French Ligue 1 this season and will try to improve their stats from last season when Parisians again lift the title. This match with Lille is also very important to them, because the Les Dogues are second, but the match is today, on Friday, because PSG will be visiting Napoli in Italy on Tuesday. This Napoli game is much more important for PSG, because if they fail to win it, it will be quite difficult for them to qualify ahead, which will be a huge failure. The goal of PSG is a very strong performance in the Champions League this season after many years of early-stage failures.
Lille is in top shape and won in four consecutive league games in Ligue 1. During the week, Les Dogues lost to Strasbourg for the League Cup, showing that they are all focused on the battle in the league and the weak form of Monaco, who are on the bottom plus not convincing Lyon and Marseille, they have chances even for the top 3. Lille has nothing to lose in this game and will play extremely motivated. They got no serious injuries and will rely on their best line up against PSG.
The matches between PSG and Lille are always quite exiting. Lille managed to score against PSG as a guest in each of their last 6 away games. PSG’s defense is currently strong, but Kimpembe is absent, and Silva, even if he plays, is not yet in top condition. PSGs took their important match with Marseille and will now play much more open at home, which may allow Lille to take advantage of counterattacks and surprise the PSG defense. We think Lille is currently one of the best teams in France and if there is some team who can score against PSG, that’s Lille. Parisians have to think about the key match with Napoli on Tuesday, so our prediction is BTTS at 1.84
