It will be a top of the table clash in Ligue 1 this Saturday as the reigning champions PSG take on Lille in 31st round encounter of the domestic league. Although both sides have exactly the same number of points at this stage of the season having 63 points to their credit. But it is the Parisians who have an advantage of having a better goal difference and hence sit at the top of the table. However, things can change quickly and the winner of this game can even be decisive in the context of deciding the Ligue 1 champions.
Although most of the star players will be available for this clash, the Parisians will be without the services of Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, Mauro Icardi and Pablo Sarabia who are all out owing to injuries.
For Lille, they will have Jeremy Pied not available to them but other than that they should be able to stick to their plan in this crucial match against the current table toppers.
Although there is little doubt that PSG is the team with the greater star power, Lille are quite capable of giving PSG a run for their money on a given day. Their clash earlier in the season had also ended in a 0-0 draw which means that if Lille can give their best it would be tough to ask even for a star-studded PSG to get a win. However, now with Neymar ready to make a return and Lille coming off a poor result against Nimes, PSG may have that slight advantage heading into this game.
