MATCH PREVIEW

PSG are the league leaders but only on goal difference from the visitors, second placed Lille. PSG had been trailing Lille but have made the gap up in the past three league games. They have won three of their last four Ligue 1 fixtures but had a surprising home loss to Nantes. Before the international break, PSG also won the French Cup and they did so by beating Lille 3-0 in the final. PSG had won six straight home league games but the last two against Monaco and Nantes have both been lost. Ten home games have been won in Ligue 1 this season but four lost.

 

Lille are in a vital stage of the season with a trip to third placed Lyon later in the month. They come into this game having gone three games without a win. As well as the cup loss to PSG, they could only draw with Monaco and then lost at home to relegation-threatened Nimes. Only eight points have been earned in their last five league matches. Away form had seen them win six straight league games before that draw at fourth placed Monaco who are only four points off the top of the table. In all competitions, Lille have one win in their last four. PSG can get a vital home win here.

 

KEY STATISTICS

PSG have won six of their last eight home league games.

Lille recently lost 3-0 to PSG.

Lille have one win in their last four away matches.

 

BETTING VERDICT

It's a close battle at the top of Ligue 1, not something that's often written. PSG have taken advantage of a dip in Lille's form to go top of the table but on level points. Both teams will want to win this game, a draw would give more hope for Lyon and Monaco. PSG have had some slips at home but will take heart from the recent Cup win over Lille. Go for a home win here.
