As expected, PSG sit top of the table and are well on their way to winning their sixth title in seven seasons. Triumph this season would mark their third in a row, and this weekend’s opponents are the only team to stop them from winning the trophy in this period, as Lille took their crown in 2021.
They are currently eight points clear of second place Nice, and have the opportunity to extend that gap to double digits with a win this weekend. Lille are fourth, this position would earn them a place in the Champions League qualifiers for next season. It is a closely fought battle with numerous teams, as just seven points separate Nice in second and Lens in sixth.
Victory for Lille could see them overtake Brest in third, but it will be a tough ask for them to topple PSG at home. The hosts have won seven of their 10 home games this season, but their sole defeat did come at the Parc des Princes in September. They did, however, blow a two-goal lead to Brest just last week, which was their first dropped points at home since that loss.
Led by Kylian Mbappe, PSG have by far the most dangerous attack in the division, scoring 48 goals. This is 11 more than Monaco, who have scored the second most. They also boast a top-five defence. Lille, in comparison, have scored 28, but have been very strong at the back, letting in just 14 goals in 20 games. But to get past Gianluigi Donnarumma, Paulo Fonseca will be hoping Jonathan David can add to his six goals this season. Though they have a solid backline, they will also have to somehow contain the 20-goal Mbappe.
The last five meetings between the two sides has seen PSG be absolutely dominant. They have won four of the fixtures, with the other ending in a draw. There have also been plenty of goals to enjoy, the teams have scored a combined 26 goals between them, though the majority have been in PSG’s favour.
Earlier this season, they faced each other in the reverse fixture but there was nothing to split them. However, it would have been another PSG win if it wasn’t for David’s 94th-minute equaliser to salvage a point. His strike cancelled out Kylian Mbappe’s opener from the penalty spot.
