Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille

Paris Saint-Germain’s inexorable march toward another Ligue 1 title continues at the Parc des Princes against Champions League hopefuls Lille.

After a 2-1 win at Strasbourg last weekend, Paris Saint-Germain maintained their remarkable form in midweek Coupe de France action, beating Brest 2-1 at home to extend their unbeaten streak in all competitions to 15 matches (W11, D4). Lethal in front of goal, ‘Les Parisiens’ have netted 2+ goals in 12 of those 15 games, increasing the likelihood of another free-scoring performance against Lille. Indeed, Luis Enrique’s men have scored over 3.5 goals in three of their last four encounters against ‘Les Dogues’ en route to tallying a five-game unbeaten H2H run (W4, D1). Virtually unplayable in Paris, the perennial Ligue 1 champions have racked up ten wins in their last 12 home outings (D2), suggesting their confidence in protecting an eight-point lead on second-placed Nice is skyrocketing.

On the other hand, Lille failed to impress in Coupe de France duties in midweek, losing 2-1 to a struggling Lyon side to surrender a five-match unbeaten streak in competitive football (W4, D1). Back to Ligue 1 action, the visitors can draw inspiration from pulling off three consecutive clean sheets (W2, D1) since a 2-1 loss at Strasbourg in mid-December. Considering they’ve drawn a blank in two of their last three away league matches (D2, L1), nothing less than another resilient defensive display will do for Lille, who will be out to cancel a one-point deficit on third-placed Brest. That’s easier said than done, as they’ve conceded 2+ goals on their last two top-flight visits to Paris (L2), including a 4-3 defeat in this fixture in 2022/23.
