Preview: Lille vs Paris Saint-Germain – Prediction, Team News, Line-ups

PSG 1-1 Newcastle: Late Mbappe penalty puts Magpies last-16 hopes in jeopardy

The Ligue 1 fixtures continue as Paris Saint-Germain take on Lille at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday. 

Paulo Fonseca’s side are currently occupying fourth spot in the table, while their rivals are top.

Match Preview 

Lille will enter the upcoming clash on the back of a 3-0 victory over Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag in the Europa Conference League. 

Les Dogues have topped Group A after picking up 14 points from their six matches, but they will now turn their attention to the Ligue 1.  

Lille were expected to pick up three points against Clermont Foot last week but were held to a disappointing draw.

They have had a good season, collecting 27 points from 15 games to claim fourth in the Ligue 1 table

They are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions and have one of the best defences in the French league. 

However, Fonseca’s side face a challenging test as they host PSG this weekend.

PSG have been unconvincing in Europe, but they edged out AC Milan to make it to the knockout stage, thanks to a 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund in midweek. 

The Parisians will now return to action in Ligue 1, where they are cruising at the top with a four-point lead. 

Luis Enrique’s side have won nine of their last ten top-flight matches, with their most recent success coming against Nantes at the Parc des Princes.

Team News 

Lille will be missing Tiago Djalo on Sunday as he is recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Ivan Cavaleiro will also be sidelined due to fitness problems. 

PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will serve his suspension for the red card against Le Havre. Sergio Rico will also be out of action this weekend due to a head injury. 

Lille vs Paris Saint-Germain potential line-ups 

Lille: Chevalier; Santos, Yoro, Alexsandro, Ismaily; Bentaleb, Andre; Zhegrova, Gomes, Yazici; David

Paris Saint-Germain: Tenas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Pereira, Hernandez; Soler, Ugarte, Vitinha; Dembele, Mbappe, Barcola

Lille vs Paris Saint-Germain prediction 

We could witness an upset on Sunday given Lille’s defensive solidity this season.

But they will come up against some of the best attackers, and we don’t see them preventing their opponents from scoring.

Lille 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain.
