LOSC Lille vs. PSG: clash of protagonists

The action continues in Ligue 1 and French football continues to prove to be one of the most interesting for neutral fans who want to see good football and goals everywhere. Indeed, one of the most interesting clashes of matchday three will have LOSC Lille and PSG who will face each other again next Sunday in an all-or-nothing confrontation between the leader and the shooting guard.

On the one hand, Lille surprised locals and strangers from a very good league start despite the fact that it was not one of the clear favorites in sports predictions to fight for the title. Now, he will have the opportunity to go down to current champion and give his fans a joy.

For their part, the Parisians want to continue demonstrating their overwhelming dominance in the domestic tournament and seek to repeat the title as they did last season, honoring the sports betting that, due to individual hierarchy and collective operation, makes it a clear candidate.

Last Lille matches

Under the command of Paulo Fonseca, Lille remains one of the cheerleaders in Ligue 1 so far this season. The football proposal is clear and transcends the rival in turn, since LOSC offers an offensive game plan with the premise of the rival goal as the first objective.

Beyond the defensive mistakes, Lille is solid in all lines and wants to repeat the good performance shown last season, especially in the Champions League where it managed to advance in the group stage, despite not being the favorite in sports predictions . The elimination against Chelsea in the round of 16 was logical, but it showed that Fonseca's team is ready to go head-to-head with the most powerful teams in Europe.

The start of the new season renewed hopes and now Fonseca seeks to get the most out of his coaches. LOSC Lille had a good pre-season with several preparatory friendlies where they drew 2-2 against Las Palmas, lost 2-0 against Espanyol de Barcelona and defeated Cádiz 1-0.

Already in Ligue 1, LOSC Lille left no doubts in the opening match and thrashed Auxerre 4-1 at home. Subsequently, he took a step back considering that he faced one of the weakest teams in the tournament such as Nantes in a bittersweet 1-1, as it allowed him to climb to second place in the table with four points in two games played. , five goals scored and only two conceded.

The duel next Sunday will be a litmus test for Lille who will have the opportunity to lower the leader and candidate of all.

Last PSG matches

Cristophe Galtier's reign began in the best way. And beyond what PSG has shown on the field of play, discipline is another of the pillars that the experienced French coach with a past in Nice will seek to enforce.

The management of egos and the management of costumes before so many stars that come together in the same match can be the difference between being a champion and falling short of the main objectives set for this year by the Parisian board, such as achieving the two-time championship in Ligue 1 and achieve the first UEFA Champions League once and for all, as sports betting anticipates .

PSG's pre-season was acceptable with several friendlies that allowed Galtier to explore some variants and consolidate the starting team. At that time the Parisians defeated Quevilly 2-0, Kawasaki 2-1, Urawa Red Diamonds 3-0 and Gamba Osaka 6-2.

After the end of the preseason, PSG had to play for an official title beating Nantes 4-0 in the French Super Cup, prior to the league debut. On the opening day, the Parisians thrashed Clermont 5-0 in a logical result while on the second day they defeated Montpellier 5-2 at the Parc des Princes.

PSG leads Ligue 1 with a perfect score after two wins in the same number of games played where they scored 10 goals and conceded two goals.
