Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 2nd November 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

PSG are coming off a tough test against Marseille with their 100 percent start to the French league season still intact and they now face another test when they travel to Lille.

Observers will be asking whether this will be another stroll for PSG or if Lille can clip the wings of the flying champions.

Lille were in a relegation battle for much of last season, and they needed a manager to save them.

Christoph Galtier stepped up and secured 3 wins from their last 4 games to help them stay up with a 17th place finish.

Things have started a lot better for Lille this season as they have kept the momentum going from that survival run.

They come into this game having won 8 of their last 11 games and they will be looking to be the first team to make PSG drop points in the French top flight this season.

PSG are currently dominating French football no matter how hard it has been for them to crack it in Europe.

The Parisians come into this game with plenty of confidence having dispatched all other title challengers, beating Lyon 5-0 and Olympique Marseille 2-0 in recent weeks.

PSG are almost too good when they take on another French side and they get even better when they play at home – that can be better understood by the fact that they have put together 24 wins from their last 27 games at the Parc des Princes over the last few years.

The absence of the likes of Presnel Kimpembe, Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva may offer some encouragement to Lille, but PSG have quality replacements across the field and they will most likely not miss those players.

PSG have won their last four league games against Lille and they haven’t lost any of their last 12 against them.

Bookmakers make PSG very short favourites to come out on top while over 2.5 goals is currently trading long odds on so goals are expected by punters.
