Lens vs PSG Prediction
PSG have blown hot and cold this season and are yet to click as a unit under Mauricio Pochettino. The Parisians do have a 12-point lead at the top of the league and will want to put on a show this weekend.
Lens have punched above their weight this season and are capable of an upset on their day. PSG are the better team on paper, however, and are the favourites to win this game.
Prediction: Lens 1-3 PSG
As the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season heads towards its winter break, runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain travel north to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis to take on Lens.
The hosts’ form has worsened in recent weeks but they remain fifth in the table, just three points off second, but 15 behind their upcoming opponents.
Lens started the campaign in eye-catching fashion, earning 18 points from the opening nine matches, but they have since seen their consistency slip slightly.
While they bounced back from a loss to Montpellier with a 4-1 win over Metz and a defeat to Lyon with a 4-0 thrashing of Troyes, Les Sang et Or have now won just two of their last seven games, and have drawn the most recent two.
Both games ended 2-2, with Angers able to recover after Lens turned the game around, and Clermont equalising twice before hanging on with 10 men in Wednesday’s game.
