Paris Saint Germain vs Lille Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Paris Saint-Germain and Lille will square off at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night in their first game of this current edition of the Coupe de la Ligue. Unai Emery’s men only registered a 2-2 home draw against Nice in Ligue 1 at the weekend. Edinson Cavani netted a second-half brace and was very close to complete his hat-trick, but his third goal was called back due to offside. Meanwhile, Lille picked up a 2-1 home win over Montpellier thanks to goals from Nicolas De Preville and Younousse Sankhare. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Paris Saint-Germain Preview

After an unbeaten streak of twelve games across all competitions, Paris Saint-Germain started to struggle over the past few weeks. PSG come into this tie off the back of a three-game winless streak in all competitions, which includes their 2-2 home draw against Nice after they were two goals down at halftime. This means that PSG are now four points off the current leaders Nice in the Ligue 1 table. Les Parisiens are the most titled team in the Coupe de la Ligue as they won the trophy on six occasions since 1994/1995 season to date. Their most recent game in Coupe de la Ligue was a 2-1 triumph over Lille back in April in the final of the previous edition. PSG have won the Coupe de la Ligue in the previous three attempts and are hot favourites to repeat the scenario this year as well. They are currently on a twelve-game winning streak in Coupe de la Ligue, conceding just seven goals in the process. On home soil, PSG have won the last six fixtures since a 0-3 defeat against Bordeaux back in February 2009. Edinson Cavani has enjoyed a great start to the season, as the 29-year-old striker is currently leading the Ligue 1’s goalscoring charts with 16 goals in his 15 league appearances.

Lille Preview

Meanwhile, Lille were the runners-up in Coupe de la Ligue last term, losing 2-1 at the hands of their Wednesday’s opponents. This means they were on a four-game winning streak in the competition prior to that match. Lille have endured one of the worst starts to a season, but it appears they have found some consistency of late. Les Dogues come into this fixture off the back of a four-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, winning three and drawing once in the process. They looked very well-organised at both ends of the pitch over the past few weeks, scoring seven goals and conceding just three in their last four league fixtures. Due to this good run of form, Lille find themselves in 11th place in the Ligue 1 table at the moment, five points clear of the relegation zone. Lille head into this clash with renewed confidence as they finally picked up their first away win of this 2016/207 competitive season, winning 0-1 on the road at Bordeaux at the beginning of December. The bad news is that Lille are winless in their 18 visits to the Parc des Princes across all competitions, losing 10 and drawing 8 in this term. Eder has been Lille’s most influential player on the pitch throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, helping the team with 3 goals and 3 assists in his 15 league appearances.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Paris Saint-Germain are huge favourites to win here despite their recent struggle across all competitions. I’ve watched their most recent game against Nice, and it’s the first time when I saw Unai Emery’s boys that angry. It’s obvious that PSG aren’t at their best at the moment, and this makes me backing Lille to cover the Handicap +2 in this one. I’m also expecting a low-scoring affair as three of the previous four meetings between these two sides have seen just one goal scored.
