Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Parc des Princes will host Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Lens, the two top-table sides. Despite beating Metz on the road, PSG failed to overtake Lille in top position, but they are still seen as No. 1 favourites to lift the trophy. The capital club are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the French top flight, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Kylian Mbappe should be fit to face Lens despite picking up a knock in the triumph over Metz.
Lens, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in the Europa Conference League. The Yellow-Reds are enjoying a season to remember, but seeing that PSG want this win more than Lens, we are not tempted to put our money on the underdogs. Defender Issiaga Sylla is banned for the visitors, while Banza and Fortes return from suspension.
