This weekend, PSG will return to action when they play Lens in another crucial Ligue 1 match. Given their strong start to the season, both teams will be motivated to perform well in this match.
This season, Lens has performed above expectations, currently holding fifth place in Ligue 1. In this game, the home team will need to step it up a notch after playing to a 2-2 draw against Clermont last week.
On the other hand, PSG is currently atop the league standings but has not yet found their footing. After being held to a scoreless draw in their last match, the Parisians are out to redeem themselves this weekend.
PSG and Lens Head-to-Head…
In the 28 games played between the two teams, PSG has won 11 of them, which is a strong record against Lens. With eight victories over PSG, Lens can pose a threat to their opponents on Saturday.
The two teams’ most recent meeting took place in May of this year, with PSG coming out on top 2-1. Lens performed admirably that day and will support themselves this weekend.
On the injury front…
Deiver Machado and Wesley Said have recovered from their injuries and are available for selection for Lens. Arnaud Kalimuendo has served his suspension and will be available for selection as well.
For PSG, Neymar, Ander Herrera, and Julian Draxler are currently injured and have been sidelined this weekend. Mauro Icardi and Georginio Wijnaldum are training with the team but might not be risked in this match.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, PSG struggled to gel as a team this year due to their ups and downs. The Parisians will want to put on a show this weekend because they do hold a 12-point lead over the competition.
