On January 1, Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens) will host the match of the 17th round of French Ligue, in which Lens will compete with PSG. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.

Lens

The club “made some noise” at the turn of the century. But then there was a long and extremely unsuccessful period, when it was playing more in Ligue 2 than in the elite division. Once again, a new rise was finally possible in 2020. There were good, but mediocre results at the very beginning. Last spring, it even climbed up to the 7th place. But still, this autumn, “the Blood and Gold” surprised everyone. In August-November, the team won 11 of 15 matches, with a single away loss in the struggle with Lille. Taking into account this background, the start after a pause with a goalless draw is considered, despite the fact that a 0-0 score was on the arena of still ambitious Nice, to be the loss of 2 points.

PSG

The team seems to be preparing for the struggle with Bayern at the end of winter and in early spring. Paris has been raving about winning the Champions League for a long time, and, by and large, the real season will begin with the play-offs of this tournament. And now, the German grand is waiting in the first round of knockout games. As a result, the team can play with any line-up, making experiments in the inner arena. There was no doubt that the Ligue 1 title will remain in the capital. But at the same time, Christophe Galtier and “the Citizens” started the tournament almost in a perfect way. Before the pause for the World Cup matches, there were 13 wins and a couple of draws (with a goal difference of 47-9). In December, the team is coming back into the season without those who are having a rest after the World Cup. Still, modest Strasbourg was defeated minimally due to Mbappé's goal by means of a penalty kick in the 90th minute of the match.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Having returned to Ligue 1, Lens is pretty troublesome for the local giant No. 1. The last but one season, the clubs exchanged victories, and in the previous one – the final 1–1 scores were fixed both times.

Predictions

Bookmakers are waiting for the PSG’s break away from an unexpected pursuer. We bet on the victory of the guests (odd: 2.12).
