Both Sides Remain Unbeaten in Ligue 1 Play

Clash of the Titans

Prior to the start of the season, PSG was the clear betting online favorite to win the Ligue 1 title. Well, that hasn’t changed and won’t for a while, not even if they lose to Lille. The Parisians are currently offering a -1200 price. What would change, considerably, are Lille’s odds. The Mastiffs are currently offering a +8000 price.

As expected, PSG also dominates the lines for Sunday’s clash, but let’s not forget that two seasons ago, Lille pulled off an incredible stunner by winning the title. Plus, Jonathan David is determined to put up a good fight for the Golden Boot. In other words, this is PSG’s first real test.

Let’s check the latest France League 1 news, stats, injury reports and France League 1 for Lille vs PSG. We’ve plenty of France League 1 picks and predictions for you to consider.

Lille: Stronger at Home

Lille began the season with a bang. The Mastiffs crushed Auxerre 4-1 at home. Benjamin Andre scored the opener only one minute into the game. Later, David scored twice and Akim Zedadka sealed the deal. Gaetan Charbonnier scored the goal of honor for the visitors.

One week later, the Mastiffs hit the road to face Nantes. They dominated the game from start to end but couldn’t get the three points. In fact, they had to come from behind to earn a point. It ended 1-1 thanks to Ismaily Goncalves’ goal. Considering the Canaries are the reigning Coupe de France champions, that’s not a bad result. Plus, it allowed the Mastiffs to sit in third place, only two points behind PSG.

David, who last season finished as the team’s top scorer with 15 goals, is the main reason for you to consider including Lille in your soccer picks, but it’s not the only one. During the offseason, the Mastiffs signed a partner for David in Mohamed Bayo. Last season, Bayo scored 14 goals while playing for Clermont.

Aiming for a balanced team, they also signed two central defenders in Bafode Diakite and Alexsandro. Diakite played in the previous two games as a substitute while Alexsandro hasn’t made his debut.

The Mastiffs are offering +525 price to win straight up. If you were looking for a tempting underdog to wager on, you can stop, because you won’t find a more tempting one than the Mastiffs playing as the host.

PSG: The Best Defense is a Good Offense

If Lille had a good start, PSG had a great one. The Parisians opened the season on the road against Clermont and won 5-0. Lionel Messi was named Man of the match after scoring twice. Neymar Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi also scored.

Most recently, the Parisians made their home debut with another beating, this time 5-2 over Montpellier. Neymar (twice), Kylian Mbappe and Renato Sanches were the scorers. The team’s first score was an own goal by Falaye Sacko.

“We scored five goals; we could have scored more. It’s a good sign for what’s ahead. There are still those two goals we conceded, which is never good, but overall, we’re happy with this win,” said manager Christophe Galtier, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino during the offseason.

Pochettino is going to be very happy for a while as PSG has talent to spare. Keylor Navas, Leandro Paredes, Danilo Pereira, Sanches, Pablo Sarabia and Nordi Mukiele didn’t start against Montpellier. That’s practically another starting team.

The Parisians, who are offering a -210 price in the sportsbook, want to build a comfortable advantage in Ligue 1 so they can focus on the UEFA Champions League. Increasing the gap with Lille to five points in only three games would be huge, and that should be motivation enough for them to go all-in right from the start.

Lille vs PSG Prediction

Last season, PSG only lost four games, but all four were on the road. That being said, this will be one of the few Ligue 1 games during the 2022-23 campaign in which PSG will have to work a bit harder. Even so, the Parisians’ depth and overwhelming talent will make the difference. You can also expect the total (3 -115 o/u) to go over, just like it happened in six of their last 10 meetings. After all, three of the league’s top scorers will be on the field.

Score Prediction: PSG 3, Lille 2
