THE PSG will be looking to put their Champions League final woes behind them when they travel to the newly promoted side RC Lens.
The Ligue 1 season kicked off last month but Parisians have been given a prolonged break to recover from their Champions League final clash with Bayern Munich.
Lens started their new campaign in the worst possible way, losing 2-1 to Nice on the opening day, but they will be anticipating that Thomas Tuchel’s side are yet to regain focus and match fitness following their champions league adventure in Lisbon.
Thomas Tuchel’s side will be hoping for successive defence of Ligue 1 title yet again this season, but can Lens evoke an early surprise and provide some enthusiasm in these opening stages?
Lens lost 3 of their seven pre-season friendlies with encouraging over Dijon and Genk. They lost their first game of the season in a 2-1 away loss to Nice.
There has been news that Kylian Mbappe tested positive to Covid-19 and will surely miss this game. Thomas Tuchel’s side won’t have the strongest line up but will definitely field a team strong enough to defeat the news promoted sides.
PREDICTION: PSG TO WIN & OVER 1.5 MATCH GOALS
