The title race is not over in Ligue 1 and this weekend could see it take another turn with predictive analytics pointing towards a tough match for the leaders.

The game between Paris Saint-Germain and Lille will take place on the 10th of February at the Parc des Princes. The hosts begin the weekend top of the table on 47 points while the visitors are in 4th place on 35 points.

PSG come into the game on the back of a 3-1 win over Brest at home in the Coupe de France round of 16.

PSG opened the scoring in the 34th minute and doubled their advantage just 3 minutes later.

Brest pulled a goal back in the 65th minute but PSG sealed the victory with their third goal at the end of the match.

The win over Brest means PSG are undefeated in their 15 most recent fixtures in all competitions.

They have won 7 of their last 8 games, with the victories coming over Lens and Strasbourg away plus Metz at home in Ligue 1, Revel and Orleans away in the Coupe de France plus Toulouse in the Trophee des Champions.

Stats show PSG haven't lost in 23 of their last 25 matches in Ligue 1. They are unbeaten in their last 15 games in Ligue 1 and have seen both teams score in each of their last 4 home Ligue 1 fixtures.

Lille travel to Paris having lost 2-1 at Lyon in the Coupe de France on Wednesday night.

Lyon took the lead in the 40th minute and added a second goal shortly after half time.

Lille pulled one back in the 53rd minute but could not find the equaliser in the time that remained.

The defeat at Lyon was the first lost in 6 matches for Lille. There have been wins over Golden Lion and Racing in the Coupe de France plus Lorient and Clermont at home in Ligue 1.

Trends show Lille are unbeaten in 21 of their last 24 matches in Ligue 1. They are undefeated in 7 of their 8 most recent away games in the league but have been held to draws in 5 of those 8 matches.

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Lille’s last 7 away fixtures in Ligue 1.

Team news: PSG have several players on the treatment table, including Milan Skriniar, Sergio Rico, Nuno Mendes, Layvin Kurzawa, and Presnel Kimpembe.

Lille make the trip without the injured trio of Samuel Umtiti, Ivan Cavaleiro, and Bafodé Diakité.

Lille’s away form suggests they can make this a tough game for PSG and although both teams could score, we may see under 2.5 goals. That means our prediction is for this game to end level, with 1-1 as the final score.
