Preview | PSG vs Lille

An under strength PSG side will take on Lille at the Parc des Princes on Saturday afternoon. The hosts are expected to rest several of their key men this weekend, with one eye on their Champions League clash with Chelsea coming up. The champions do, however, head into this match on the back of nine straight league victories and can temporarily extend their lead at the top of the table to 27 points with a win.

Lille, on the other hand, currently sit 15th in the standings, just four points above the relegation zone. The visitors have only won one of their last seven league outings and have spent the entire season so far in the bottom half of the table. The fact that they will be facing a weakened PSG side does give them a bigger chance than usual to take something from this game, but given both sides respective form, it still looks unlikely to happen.

In the reverse fixture on the opening weekend of the season, PSG beat Lille 1-0 at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, with Lucas Moura scoring the only goal.
