Paris SG vs Lille Prediction & Betting tips
The twelfth round in the Ligue 1 opens immediately with the most interesting competition of the weekend: Paris Saint-Germain in its own Parc des Princes against the number two, Lille. Do the Parisians win for the twelfth time in a row and set a new record?
Last week was certainly not the best of the season for the team of Thomas Tuchel: in house was narrowly played against Napoli (2-2) and visiting the arch rival won the team Tuchel even with difficulty. Kylian Mbappé was allowed to enter the field after more than an hour as a substitute and only needed a few minutes to score. In the final phase, Julian Draxler doubled the score in a game that will mainly be remembered by the misconduct of the supporters towards Neymar. However, the three points will be no less valuable for Paris Saint-Germain, certainly not because this Friday broke the old record of Tottenham Hotspur from the season 1960/1961 of most victories at the start of the competition in one of Europe’s five biggest leagues. can become.
If Mbappé is on time in the match, the chances of that happening seem a lot bigger, as it turned out in classique. The 19-year-old Frenchman showed up late at the game review for le Classique and cut himself and his team in the fingers by only after an hour as a substitute in the field to come. Until the opening of Mbappé, the game of the Parisians was not much better than that of the Marseilles, but with the arrival of Mbappé, the top scorer of the Ligue 1 with ten goals, it soon became clear why the Parisians also in this kind of duels the top favorite.
In the competition Lille is on an admirable second place with 25 points from eleven matches and was won last week by a goal from Rafael Leao for the fourth week in a row. In the Coupe de la Ligue, a glorified B-team of Christophe Galtier fared a little less: when visiting RC Strasbourg, the team from Lille lost 2-0, so the focus for the remainder of the season on the Ligue 1 and the Coupe France can. A defeat against Friday’s PSG means that the team of Galtier can lose the lead of three points on the number three, Montpellier, but then Montpellier has to win the number five, Olympique Marseille.
Christophe Galtier put his own hand after the elimination in the Coupe de la Ligue: “We are of course disappointed that we have lost, but it was a deserved win for RC Strasbourg We needed a lot of time to get into the game because many players have not played a lot lately and, as far as the line-up was concerned, it was not the right one for this match, everyone is disappointed and angry because we thought we could get far in this tournament. ” Galtier has clearly learned his lesson through the elimination against RC Strasbourg and it is therefore in line with expectations that we will be able to enjoy Jonathan Bamba, Jonathan Ikoné and Nicolas Pépé again on Friday-evening.
