Lille vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
The biggest match of the season in Ligue 1 so far will take place on Sunday night, and it actually feels like one of the most significant in years.
The reason behind this is we are in December and for once PSG are not in the lead. Instead Lille are top although it is only by 1 point. They could go 4 points clear with an historic win and in fact PSG could fall to 3rd if Lyon win their game on Saturday.
Lille have been brilliant so far and come into this match having won their last 3 in a row. Last weekend they beat Dijon 2-0 in an expected victory.
At home only Lille and Lyon are still unbeaten and Lille’s record is played 8, won 6 and drawn 2. They have picked up 13 points from their last 15 available at home and have only conceded 4 goals so far in their own stadium.
PSG look strong but perhaps not as strong and dominant as last season. Whilst they have won 10 games from 15 they have lost 4 already this season which is unlike them.
PSG come into this match in 2nd place with 31 points and have earned 7 points from their last 15. This includes losing 2 games recently. Last weekend they beat Lorient 2-0 at home.
Lille vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this fixture 2-0.
- PSG have won seven of the last 8 meetings vs Lille.
- 5 of the last 7 fixtures has seen over 2.5 goals.
- Lille’s win at home vs PSG in 2019 was their first since 2012 in the league.
Lille vs PSG: Prediction
Lille are a very good side who will be completely prepared for this game. We have seen too many mistakes from PSG this season, although this match will feel like a cup final for them.
Lille are around 3.75 to win and PSG are 1.91, be cautious there because usually PSG are 1.30 so everyone knows this match should be very difficult for the champions.
We are tempted to back Lille but on the handicap and that will cover us if the game ends in a draw. We are expecting a very close and tight game with few goals, this is good value also, as every time PSG are playing goals are expected, but PSG will need to keep it really tight and we expect a slow game to unfold.
Lille vs PSG Betting Tips:
Double Chance: Lille or draw at 1.91 (10/11)
