Paris Saint-Germain host Lille on Wednesday hoping to finally win after three-match winless streak and to go through to the next round in Coupe de la Ligue.
Paris Saint-Germain haven’t started December the way the wanted with several disappointing results and the Parisians now have the mid-week Coupe de la Ligue clash to Lille to finally pick up their form with a Cup success, which we will back at 2/7 with William Hill
Unai Emery’s side have struggled to win this month, as they have started the month with a thrashing 3-0 loss at Montpellier only to follow up with draws to Ludogorets in the Champions League and Nice in Ligue 1 this weekend, where they hoped to close the gap with the top 2. However, they are now four points behind table-topping Nice and three behind 2nd placed Monaco. The side led by in-form Edinson Cavani will now look to outclass Lille and advance to the quarterfinals.
Les Dogues, on the other hand, come into the matchup in a much better form with three wins behind them (4-0 against Caen, 0-1 at Bordeaux, and 2-1 over Montpellier). However, PSG will be a much more serious challenge as they are definitely not the best team on the road and the Parisians are yet to lose a home match in any competition this season! Furthermore, Lille have last won against PSG in 2012, and with the Parisians having won eight of their 11 head-to-head encounters since then it doesn’t seem much has changed this season.
LOSC have failed to score on four of their last six away days and they will now be up against one of the strongest defence lines in Ligue 1, so we don’t see them causing serious damage at Parc des Princes. While the visitors have struggled to score goals away from home throughout the season, Paris Saint-Germain have kept a clean sheet in seven out of their last seven wins at home. Believing they have the quality to completely shut the opposition out, we’ll thus go for a No on Both teams to score at 8/13 with Ladbrokes
With 16 goals in 15 league matches and six more in Champions League this season, Edinson Cavani is the obvious pick in the goalscoring market. His total outshines those of many sides in Ligue 1 and we’ll back him to continue his fantastic streak and score anytime at 8/15 with bet365
