  • Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Villeneuve d'Ascq)

An intriguing Ligue 1 contest awaits on Sunday evening as champions PSG take on Lille at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

PSG have begun the new season in some style, winning their first 3 domestic fixtures of the new season with 14 goals scored and just 2 conceded in the process.

Under new boss Galtier, PSG have switched to a 3-4-3 system, and that change seems to have brought more stability to PSG´s transition from defence to attack, with Lionel Messi beginning to show something approaching his best form in recent performances.

Lille have also begun the season relatively well, scoring a big 4:1 win over league newcomers Auxerre before a hard-fought draw at Nantes last weekend, but they now face their biggest home fixture of the campaign in just the third round of fixtures in Ligue 1

Lille vs PSG Betting Tips: Over 2.5 match goals

PSG claimed an easy 5:1 win when these sides last met at this venue last season; however, Les Parisiens don´t usually get it easy in the North, with only 1 win in their previous 4 away matches against the hosts prior to that 5:1 thrashing and Lille will surely be keen to avenge that heavy defeat against PSG back in February.

Still, the visitors have looked particularly strong in recent weeks, while their away form in Ligue 1 has been impressive, with 4 wins and 1 draw on the road since April. PSG scored at least 3 goals in all 5 matches and a whopping 21 in total, although it should be noted they scored 11 of those goals in 2 matches at Clermont. 

Ultimately, PSG will be confident of claiming the points, but we prefer to take a punt on over 2.5 goals in this fixture, with both sides scoring regularly in recent home and away fixtures in Ligue 1.

Indeed, Lille have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of their 9 most recent league fixtures and in 4 of their last 5 at home. PSG, for their part, have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 12 of their last 13 league matches, including each of the last 6 on the road.

While the visitors are expected to take the points, they do look a little short to claim the win but, ultimately, should get the job done in what is sure to be an entertaining Ligue 1 clash.
