It's a top of the table clash on Match Day 32 in Ligue 1 as leaders PSG make the trip to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to take on second placed Lille.

There may be just one place between these sides, but a yawning gap of 20 points means that anything other than a win for the home side will see PSG crowned Champions with seven games still to play. It's only a matter of time anyway, but Lille will surely at least be keen to prevent PSG claiming the title here.

PSG came out on top in the reverse of this fixture with a 2-1 win at the Price des Princes. The champions elect also won this game last season. The score-line a far more comfortable 3-0 on that occasion.

Jérémy Pied is out injured for the home side whilst Rafael Leão is suspended. Adrien Rabiot is the only confirmed absentee for PSG, although neither Neymar nor Edinson Cavani may be ready to start quite yet.

Lille have lost only two of 15 at home this season - to Toulouse and Monaco - but their form has been tailing off a little with only three wins in their last nine here.

PSG have won eleven of 14 on the road - including each of their last four - with the only defeat coming at Lyon. They have scored two or more in ten of these fixtures and kept seven clean sheets.

Lille, much like everyone else, are some way behind PSG and don't seem to be quite at their best just now. We see the visitors claiming the title in style.



Prediction: Lille 1 - 3 PSG
