Lens vs Paris St Germain 01.01.2023
It’s a top-of-the-table clash as this season’s surprise packages Lens host champions and this season’s runaway league leaders PSG in Sunday’s late kickoff. Lens have astounded pundits and bookmakers alike with a dream campaign that has them second on the log, albeit a massive 8 points adrift of the leaders. They have impressed with a great balance in their attack and defence that has seen the grind out win after win to get them to where they are. This match represents a tough task for them and will underline their credentials for this season
The champs have cruised through the season with ease as their terrifying front three of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe have hit another gear this season, firing from all cylinders with an incredible return of 45 goals in their 16 league matches thus far. They survived a scare though in their return to league action after the World Cup. They were on the verge of drawing 1-1 with relegation candidates Strasbourg but a Mbappe penalty deep in injury time saved them some blushes as they escaped with all three points on offer.
We expect a close battle here. These are the best teams in the league by a country mile. The hosts have a perfect record at home winning all 8 of their home league games to start the season. PSG meantime remain unbeaten in their 16 matches this season. What will happen when an immovable object meets an unstoppable force? We are backing the opening half of this game to end all square.
