Lille vs Paris Saint-Germain Match Preview
PSG squandered a golden chance to retain the Ligue 1 title last weekend but should make no mistake against their closest pursuers in the table, Lille.
For all those who wondered why on earth super-rich PSG last summer signed Eric-Maxim Choupo Moting from Stoke City, the evidence was there against Strasbourg to support both sides of the argument.
The Cameroon international forward opened the scoring in the 13th minute. But subsequently, in his desperation to notch for only a fourth time in 23 appearances for the French champions, he essentially managed to ‘clear’ a goalbound shot from team-mate Christopher Nkunku by diverting it against the post instead of helping it on its way into the net!
The so-called ‘worst miss ever’ ultimately made all the difference as PSG were held 2-2 at home by Coupe de la Ligue winners Strasbourg, denying them the chance to celebrate retaining the crown in front of their own supporters.
It means Lille, who are enjoying a terrific season after just avoiding relegation last term, still have a ‘chance’ of overhauling PSG if they win their seven remaining games and Thomas Tuchel’s side lose all of their eight!
That will not happen, of course, and with a draw enough for PSG to complete the formalities here, they are backed to do even better and win on their journey north in order to banish the embarrassment felt by Choupo Moting in particular last week.
