On October 28 2016 at 19:45 in the regular game of the 11th matchday of the French Ligue 1 at the Pierre Maurou Stadium Lille play against PSG.
But for all the ambitions Lille have, they are in horrible conditions now. The victory against Bastia 2:1 in the previous game appeared to be the third one in the currents championship. Before that Lille lost to Guingamp 1:0, St Etienne 3:1 and Toulouse 1:2, outplayed Nancy 1:0. As a result, Lille managed to gain 10 points and are now on the 16th place in the standings, which is a very bad position for them. Lille gained most of their points at home, that was 9 points with 6:7 goal difference.
Even though PSG are among the leaders of the Ligue 1 and are in the race for championship, they still started the season not in the best way. In the previous game they drew Marseille 0:0, before that they outplayed Nancy 1:2, Bordeaux 2:0, Dijon 3:0 and lost to Toulouse 2:0. Consequently, after 10 games played the current champions PSG have 20 points and take the third position in the standings below Monaco and Nice.
PSG won most of the games played between the teams. This season Lille started by far not in the best way and are not on the same level as the teams, which take part in the international competitions. Even though PSG made a few mistakes, they are still one of the leaders of the league and one of the strongest teams of France. Moreover, they haven’t lost for five games in a raw. We think that the Parisians are the obvious favorites of the upcoming game and are very likely to win.
Prediction for the match: PSG to win.
