5 Tips for Friday’s Football Action - 29/10/21

PSG vs Lille: Kylian Mbappe to Score First - 11/4

Ligue 1 leaders PSG take on the champions, Lille at the Parc des Princes, with the visitors struggling in 10th place.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have hit somewhat a rocky patch in recent weeks form-wise, as they drew 0-0 away at Marseille last time out, as well as losing 2-0 at Rennes, either side of their narrow 2-1 home victory over Angers, where goals from Danilo Pereira and Kylian Mbappe sealed the Parisians all three points.

Meanwhile, Lille drew 1-1 with Brest last time out, having lost 1-0 away at Clermont and beaten Marseille 2-0 in early October, thanks to a brace from Canada international Jonathan David.

A player to focus on in this match is Mbappe, who has scored six goals and created eight across 14 appearances in all competitions, adding to the 42 goals he managed for the Parisians last season, seeing the 22-year-old former AS Monaco man priced at 11/4 to score first against Lille.

QPR vs Nottingham Forest - Notts Forest to win & BTTS - 5/1

On Friday night, Seventh-Placed QPR take on a much improved Nottingham Forest at Loftus Road, with the hosts having an opportunity to go back into the playoff places.

Mark Warburton’s side have won three of their last five games in the Championship, having defeated the likes of Birmingham City 2-0, Preston North End 3-2 and Blackburn Rovers 1-0 on 19th October, thanks to an Illias Chair strike. However, the R’s did lose 2-1 away at Peterborough United last weekend, so they’ll be desperate to bounce back.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest have started life well under Steve Cooper and have significantly climbed the table under the former Swansea manager, following four wins in their last five matches, beating Barnsley 3-1, Birmingham City 3-0, as well as both Blackpool and Bristol City by 2-1 scorelines via two second-half stoppage-time goals by Lyle Taylor in the latter. However, last time out, Forest were beaten 4-0 at home by Fulham in what was a disappointing display, Cooper will be expecting a reaction from his side at Loftus Road.
