PSG vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: 19 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG will continue their tough schedule on Sunday afternoon when they host Lille in one of the most exciting ties of Matchday No 24 in Ligue 1.
The hosts will be highly motivated to bounce back from a terrible three-loss streak across competitions and boost up the confidence ahead of huge games against Marseille and Bayern Munich.
Chris Galtier has had huge problems with the injured players of late, particularly the likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
The former is obviously not at his 100% at the moment, while the latter only came on as a late sub in the mid-week’s 0-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League R16 tie at Parc des Princes.
PSG are still five points clear at the top of the domestic league standings but a potential failure in this tricky affair against an in-form Lille side could give Galtier headaches, especially ahead of the trip to Stade Orange Orange Velodrome for the game against second-placed Marseille next weekend.
Lille climbed to fifth position in the table with back-to-back wins over Rennes and Strasbourg, netting five goals in the process. They certainly have what it takes to cause the struggling Parisians problems on Sunday.
PSG vs Lille Head-to-head
- Lille will be extra motivated to get revenge for one of the toughest defeats in club’s history as they lost the reverse fixture against PSG 1-7 in August last year at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
- Lille have won only 3 of the previous 30 away games against PSG.
- Les Parisiens bagged twelve goals in the previous two encounters with Lille.
PSG vs Lille Prediction
We don’t know whether Kylian Mbappe is ready to feature from the first minute on Sunday. What we do know is that Lille will enter the match in much higher spirits. However, PSG still have enough quality in their ranks to turn a corner and produce fireworks in front of the home fans.
Looking at the odds, the best value is with PSG to win & Both Teams To Score at the 3.10. We will alternatively back Lionel Messi to score anytime for the hosts at the 2.25 odds.
