PSG vs Lille Prediction
Lille faced a heavy defeat the last match-day, as they took a hike to take on Valencia, in the Champions League. It was a heartbreaking loss, as the French outfit had found the back of the net first, in the 25th minute.
The guests held the lead for quite some time; till late in the second half to be precise. However, their lead was extinguished in the 66th minute via a penalty, and then when it seemed like spoils would be shared, three goals were added in the final seven minutes by the home team to completely take the visiting contingent out of the picture.
Meanwhile, PSG showed the depth they have in their line-up the prior game week, despite their injury woes. Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi combined to put the capital outfit through to a victory, over Brest, with a 1-2 scoreline.
This weekend, form alone would be enough to deem the Parisians as favorites. They are at the top of the table and have won an impressive ten of their thirteen league fixtures so far. They have also scored the most number of goals, and have conceded the second-least.
On top of all this, they are any day the favorite to reign supreme in France, based on their financial strength, and the huge talent pool they have in their roster. In addition to this, they have the home advantage, whereas, their opposite number has recorded a single win from their last nine attempts.
Furthermore, Lille is winless in their previous nine away ties and lost seven of these too. Finally, PSG have been the dominant force in h2h clashes for a very long time, and especially so at this stadium.
Considering all these observations, expect PSG to easily stroll towards a win this Friday.
