PSG Favourites to Win both Halves

While Champions League Semifinals has been frustrated by the last two consecutive losses to Bayern and Manchester City, the Parisians remain top contenders for two domestic titles. And despite losing 1-0 to Lens in the reverse fixture, this should be an easy game for PSG. Kylian Mbappe is in great form and looks set to bag the golden boot this season. Neymar is back from suspension and Angel Di Maria is at his best. We are backing the PSG frontline to get this done in both halves.

It will be Goals Galore at Parc des Princes

Another value bet for PSG vs Lens is more than two goals. Given that both sides are in great form, we expect a high score line in this fixture. Eight of PSG last ten fixtures in all competitions have seen more than two goals. Lens has not only netted in their last ten games but also seen more than two goals in eight of those fixtures.

Goals on both Ends

Most punters wouldn’t want to risk betting on Lens to score but look, the visitors have netted in all their last twelve fixtures in all competitions. Moreover, Lens visits Paris with the best run of form in this fixture. They are unbeaten in the last thirteen Ligue 1 fixtures. The visitors only failed to score in twelve of their last thirteen Ligue 1 games. PSG has the home advantage in this age, and with Ligue 1 title within their grasp, the hosts need goals in this game.

Game Preview: Will PSG Keep their Title Hopes Alive?

For PSG, many things are at stake. They can still bag at least two trophies this season. However, that will depend on how they perform against Lens on Saturday. Let’s preview each team further.

PSG

PSG slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Manchester City in the Champions League. But we cannot rule out the Parisians just yet. They have the best players in the league that can turn things around. The hosts have the second-best home record in Ligue 1 after Monaco. Despite losing against unlikely opponents this season, PSG remains the best suited to lift Ligue 1 trophy even on goal difference. They have scored 77 goals and conceded only 26 goals while table leaders, Lille, has scored 52 and conceded 22 goals. Only one point separates PSG from Lille and a win on Saturday will keep them in the title race even if Lille wins their fixture against Nice the same day.

Lens

Lens 13-match unbeaten run in Ligue 1 will be put to test on Saturday when they face PSG. The visitors are not the only 5th on the table but also have the fifth best away record in Ligue 1. Moreover, Lens has netted in the last ten games, another record they will want to keep in this fixture. The visitors also hope to build on their 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture. They kept out PSG in the first meeting this season, allowing the Parisians only one shot on target despite having only 21% ball possession.
