Paris Saint-Germain will seek to keep the tabs on Lille at the top of the Ligue 1 this weekend, with only four matches left of the season. And they will welcome tennis in the French capital this weekend.
Preview for Ligue 1
Very few people expected that Paris Saint-Germain would still be in a title race at this point in the French league season, but with four matches remaining, the Parisians still have work to do if they want to reclaim their domestic title. Paris Saint-Germain is currently second, but only one point away from Lille. Each weekend is huge for all three of the top ten league standings, but this weekend may be the most important one. Paris Saint-Germain have won their last three league matches, but will need to recover after losing their first leg in the semi-final to Manchester City. They were excellent in the first half of that competition, but they allowed City to dominate the game in the second half. Pep Guardiola’s team came back from behind to win 2-1 in Paris. There may be a number of changes made this weekend to make sure the starting players at PSG are perfectly fit for Tuesday’s Etihad return match.
Lens enjoyed an excellent season, but the pace set by the top four means the European finale has already been knocked out of their hands. However, their form in their last six matches remained strong, with Lens passing that last round without suffering a single defeat. They have scored three wins and three draws in the last six. They have been hard to beat this season, losing only eight of 34 games, the same number of defeats recorded by Paris Saint-Germain. Lens got into that match after beating Nimes 2-1 last weekend.
PSG vs Lens Head To Head
Paris Saint-Germain has won eight of the previous 13 matches between the two sides. Lens won only one occasion, while there were four draws. The average capital club is approximately two goals per match in this match. The meeting earlier in the season saw Lens beat Paris Saint-Germain for the first time.
PSG vs. Lens Prediction
The lens has been excellent over recent weeks, but that would be a lot more testing. Paris Saint-Germain will make some changes to this game, but we still expect them to claim the win they need to keep the tabs on Lille.
