Lille OSC is welcoming PSG to Stade Pierre Mauroy in round 16 in the French Ligue 1.
Lille is having a fantastic season, and they are one of the best teams in the league. Lille is in second place in the League 1 standings with 32 points, 28 scored goals, and only 10 conceded goals, just 1 point behind Lyon at the top. Lille is also the best defensive team in the league, and they are a serious contestant for the title. Lille is on a 3-game winning streak in Ligue 1, and they have advanced to the next stage in the Europa League. In their last Ligue 1 game, Lille was playing against Dijon on the road, and they were the better team with 54% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 81% of accurate passes. Lille has scored 1 goal in each half, and they ended up winning this match 0-2. Yilmaz is the leading goalscorer for Lille with 6 goals and 4 assists, while Yazici and Bamba added 5 goals each. Bamba also added 5 assists. Pied, Araujo, and Sanches are all injured for Lille at the moment, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. It’s nice to see someone other than PSG being at the top of Ligue 1, and I truly hope Lille can stay there.
PSG has won 4 of their last 5 games, but they are not as nearly dominant as they were when the season started. PSG has some great players, and they can score a ton of goals, but they have a lot of injuries, and that will certainly affect their game. Bernat, Icardi, Sarabia, Diallo, Pereira, and Neymar are all injured for PSG, but there is a lot of offensive firepowers left in this team. PSG is the best offensive team in Ligue 1 with 35 scored goals so far, and their defense was decent with only 10 conceded goals, but PSG is in third place with 31 points. PSG was hosting Lorient in their last game, and they were the dominant team with a massive 74% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and high 90% of the correct passes. Lorient was defending well, and it took a while for PSG to score a goal here, but once Lorient conceded a red card, PSG scored from the penalty kick. In the 61st minute, PSG scored another goal, and they have won this game 2-0. Mbappe is PSG’s leading goalscorer and the best player with 11 goals and 4 assists, while Kean added 6 goals. PSG is always one of the biggest favorites in any competition they play in, but the competition in Ligue 1 is strong this season, and PSG will need to keep playing well if they want to win another title.
The trends are on PSG’s side in this matchup, but Lille still hasn’t lost a game at home this season. Lille is playing well, while PSG has a ton of injuries, and they haven’t been at their best as of late. If Lille can’t beat PSG now, they never will.
