The 12th round of the French Ligue 1 championship begins on Friday, October 29, 2021. Paris Saint-Germain and Lille will be the first teams to enter the football field of the Parc des Princes Stadium in Paris. The game will start at 22:30 Moscow time.
The position of both teams in the tournament standings does not matter on this occasion. What matters is that the defending champion of France and the leader of the current tournament will play against each other. There is no telling how the game will turn out, but it is still possible to try to make a prediction for the Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille match.
Mauricio Pochettino’s charges have been going through the tournament without a hitch. After 11 rounds played, the Parisians have 28 points and first place in the standings. Lens, the closest competitor, is 7 points behind the leader.
However, things are not as smooth for Paris Saint-Germain as they may seem at first glance. The results of the last matches played by Pochettino’s team are alarming. First, there was a tough 3-2 victory over Leipzig in the Champions League. Next, a hard match in Marseille, which ended in a dry draw.
Based on Lille’s position in the standings today, the French champion is no longer claiming anything. Things are going very badly for Jocelyn Gourvennec’s charges. After 11 rounds, Lille has 11th place in the standings with 15 points. The results of the team in the last test matches are also not encouraging. There was a 0-0 home draw in the game with Sevilla in the Champions League. Also, in the French Championship, there was a 1-1 draw in the match with Stade Brestois.
The history of head-to-head meetings between Paris Saint-Germain and Lille has 96 matches. In 39 games, the victory was on the side of the Parisians, while Lille won in 32 matches. The teams have drawn their games 15 times.
Paris Saint-Germain looks preferable compared to Lille by any standard. The Red and Blues may win this match and compensate for the lost points in the game with Olympique de Marseille. That is our prediction for the Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille match.
Probable result – the victory of Paris Saint-Germain.
