Paris Saint Germain

Match Date: 10 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Grand Stade Lille Métropole


It hardly matters if Paris Saint Germain (PSG) wins or loses its upcoming match against Lille. The squad has successfully defended its title this season. But its cravings for more victories does not stop. Still determined to end the season with a bang, expect PSG to continue its relentless winning rampage in France’s top-flight league.


On a closer look, PSG’s present team form barely makes an impression. In its most recent match, the squad suffered a humiliating defeat to Rennes. However, its closest title contender, AS Monaco was forced to settle for an even steven finish, thus, ending its bid in the title race.


The said win is a definite boost to the club’s confidence, knowing that it was made to wait due to its shortcomings in its previous matches. Nevertheless, all of PSG ‘s efforts paid off—and yes, it remains as the match’s online betting favorite.


Meanwhile, Lille can take this opportunity to collect more points. As mentioned, the result is insignificant to PSG’s ambitions since they have already achieved it.


Lille has a better form than PSG in this particular game. It has been undefeated in its last 7 matches and is in a position to thoroughly exploit its home court advantage. They can readily use this advantage to counter PSG’s strong away performance. The latter has maintained an undefeated state in 22 of its last 24 away matches and shows no signs of waving the white flag, thus, opening avenues for a possible stalemate.


Prediction: PSG or draw
