PSG vs Lille Prediction & Match Preview

PSG

Lille

03 April 2021 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET Ligue 1 Parc des Princes

All eyes will be on Parc des Princes when PSG and Lille take on each other in the Ligue 1 derby. 

Top position in the standings is at stake, and, as always, the star-studded Parisiens are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s showdown. 

PSG did well to beat Lyon 4-2 on the road before the international break, with the team once again proving their worth in a big match.

All Alexandre Letellier, Thilo Kehrer, Mauro Icardi, Pablo Sarabia, and Juan Bernat are all likely to miss the game with injuries, but Brazil ace Neymar is fit for the Ligue 1 derby. 

Considering that les Dogues failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Nimes, we are tempted to put our money on the reigning champions. 

Jeremy Pied remains sidelined with an ankle injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.

Team News:

Neymar made his long-awaited return from injury against Lyon and will hope to return to the starting lineup for this battle, but his fellow attackers Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi are expected to miss out once more.

Pochettino's number 10 Marco Verratti has picked up a recent thigh problem and will likely be saved for the first leg of their quarter-final with Bayern on Wednesday, so Rafinha and Julian Draxler should battle it out for the opportunity to start.

Danilo Pereira's time with Portugal was hampered by a calf problem and he might make way for Leandro Paredes here, but Thilo Kehrer is thought to be making good progress in his recovery from a groin problem and could be available on Saturday.

Lille attacker Jonathan Ikone missed out the loss to Nimes due to an ankle problem, but he turned out for the France Under-21s team during the international break and should earn a recall to the first XI this week.

Jeremy Pied is also expected to miss out with an injury in the same area, but Zeki Celik was never in any danger of losing his place, while Reinildo should get the nod over Domagoj Bradaric despite his crucial goal for Croatia Under-21s against England on Wednesday.

Renato Sanches will hope to displace Xeka in midfield despite his inconsequential goal against Nimes, while Yusuf Yazici may have to make do with a spot on the bench if Burak Yilmaz and Jonathan David pair up in the final third again.

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Rafinha, Neymar; Mbappe

Lille possible starting lineup:
Maignan; Celik, Fonte, Botman, Reinildo; Ikone, Andre, Sanches, Bamba; David, Yilmaz
