Lille vs PSG
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th April 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
How ironic should it be that PSG could win the Ligue 1 title at the team who have been the 2nd best in the league this season?
Lille are also having to fend off the challenge from Lyon who are just 5 points behind them and that could be reduced to just 2 points if the club lose on Sunday night.
Lille have been in decent form although they have suffered a shock loss against Monaco here and drawn against Reims in recent weeks. They have won just 1 game in their last three. But Lille have only lost 2 games at home this season.
PSG would win the league on Sunday night if they win or draw. The club could have won last week but they could only draw 2-2 in Paris against Strasbourg and blew their chance. Perhaps it would be all the more sweeter for the club to win in Lille who have been their nearest challengers this season.
It is incredible to think that the difference between 1st and 2nd is 20 points plus PSG also have a game extra to play over Lille. It has been a completely dominant season by PSG and they would be more than deserving of the league title.

Lille vs PSG: Prediction
The truth is PSG will come here in a relaxed mood and in some ways it is unfortunate that Lille are not much closer which would make this game more tense and more exciting for the players and the fans.
PSG have nothing to lose in this game because they will win the league, if not this weekend the next. Still because there is more pressure on Lille to win we think that PSG will give a big performance here.
Kylian Mbappe should be backed to score because he had to sit on the bench for the teams last game and that simply frustrated the Ligue 1 top goal scorer. PSG we believe will be crowned Ligue 1 champions and this result will also put more pressure on Lille if Lyon are able to win.
