Lille – PSG Preview
It’s time for another spectacular derby in the Ligue 1 because Lille hosts PSG in a match from the Ligue 1. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in our accurate football predictions.
For the hosts this is an important game because they can reduce their distance to the leader and solidify their place in Top 4. Lille are currently 4th in the standings with 27 points while PSG are leading the table with 36. Lille are in a decent shape, though – three wins and two draws in the last five matches.
Last weekend the Dogs faced Clermont Foot away from home, but only won the point after a 0-0 draw. Paulo Fonseca’s boys had some opportunities to score, but Jonathan David, Remy Cabella and Angel Gomes were not clinical enough in the attack. Lille must do better against PSG if they want to win against the champions.
PSG had a slow start of the season, but now Luis Enrique’s team is leading the standings in the Ligue 1. The Parisians have four points advantage in front of the 2nd Nice. In their last five matches they are perfect – five wins from five games played.
Last weekend PSG achieved their 11th win for the season in Ligue 1. Enrique’s boys hosted Nantes, but needed a goal in the 83th minute to take a 2-1 win. Randal Kolo Muani scored the winning goal while Bradley Barcola opened the score in the first half.
We expect to see Ousmane Dembele back in the line-up against Lille. The winger had a rest against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League as he was suspended. Now he can come back in the starting eleven as fresh as possible.
That’s the accurate football predictions for the Ligue 1 clash between Lille and PSG on Sunday. Good luck!
