PSG vs Lens Best Predictions and Top Odds

PSG needs to reinvigorate their fan base after losing two straight matches at home, and the perfect opportunity is coming on Saturday when they will host Lens.

Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

PSG to Win

It goes without saying that for this particular PSG vs Lens prediction, the home team carries the torch when it comes to being the favorite. PSG is chasing its record 11th title and they are the defending champions. Coach Christophe Galtier is almost certainly going to be ousted after the season and he is thinking about going out with the biggest trophy in France. The last time these teams met was on New Year's Day when Lens won 3-1 and with that game, it seems that everything started to fall apart for PSG regarding their higher ambitions of winning multiple trophies. Looking at their last five games, Lens has more wins (2) with PSG winning only once and two games ending in a draw.

Under 2.5 Goals

Lens has been carrying the best defense in Ligue 1 for most of the season and there is a near certainty that their tactics for this match will revolve around a strong defensive line to stop Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi from getting opportunities to score at will. This will be the key for Lens who have played 16 under 2.5 goals matches this season which is the fourth-best mark in the league contrary to PSG who played eleven of those games. However, PSG had three straight matches with fewer than three goals scored. The h2h record for PSG vs Lens match says that three out of their past five games ended with under 2.5 goals.
