Lille and PSG will face each other in the derby match of the Ligue 1 16th round on Sunday evening. Both sides will be looking forward to booking a victory that can bring them to the top place on the table.
Match Preview & Team News
Four victories from the last five rounds launched Lille to the top spot, being one point ahead of PSG. The hosts enjoy an excellent campaign, and they lost just once on the run. Christophe Galtier’s side is very disciplined in the back, while they do a very good job in the final third. Lille allowed only two points to their visitors this season and are the best hosts in the competition. They have been equally successful in the Europa League group stage, as Lille qualified for the knockout stage. Burak Yilmaz and the lads need to keep up in the same fashion, and we might see the most exciting title race in Ligue 1 in the past several years.
PSG hasn’t been consistent in the domestic championship lately as they booked just two victories in the last five rounds. They slipped to the 2nd spot, allowing Lyon and Marseille to enter the title race. A 2:0 win over Lorient got them back on the winning track, but PSG struggles against stronger sides in Ligue 1 as they lost to Marseille, Lyon, and Monaco this season. Thomas Tuchel faces injury troubles throughout the season, which will be the case in this one as well. The visitors cannot count on Neymar, Icardi, Danilo, Bernat, and a couple of players more. PSG secure their place in the Champions League eight-finals thanks to three wins in a row, and they want to remain in the race for all trophies this season.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Lille has been on a very good run lately and could capitalize on PSG’s inconsistencies. Since the visitors will miss some important players, the home side should be capable of avoiding a defeat in this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams have been involved in a lot of efficient games lately, and this one shouldn’t be much different. We believe both sides will find the back of the net.
