PSG are Back in Business – Who Can Stop Them?

Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon’s presence in the semi-finals of the Champions League dismissed claims that Ligue 1 is nothing more than a “farmer’s league”, although it also has to be said that PSG have been utterly dominant domestically and things are set to continue that way.

The club from the French capital have now won the last seven Ligue 1 titles and it’s hardly a surprise when you consider the financial clout which has brough players such as Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Thiago Silva to the Parc des Princes.

While Silva has said his goodbyes at PSG, the team are still likely to be streets ahead of the competition this season and Thomas Tuchel’s side are no bigger than 1.08 with the bookies to claim an 8th consecutive Ligue 1 title.

Are PSG a Rock Solid Accumulator Pick for Lens Clash?

Paris Saint-Germain get their 2020/21 Ligue 1 season started just a few days after losing in the Champions League final to Bayern Munich, with Tuchel likely to give several first-team players more rest time after their European excursions which saw them beat Atalanta and RB Leipzig en route to the final.

Nevertheless, PSG are no bigger than 1.22 to win at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis against a team who were promoted from Ligue 2 last season after finishing second in the division.

Lens won fifteen of their twenty-eight matches in the French second tier when play was stopped in March, although they could be out of their depth against high-class opponents and that explains why betfair are prepared to go odds of 11.00 about the home side.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

Before the Ligue 1 campaign was suspended last season, PSG scored four goals on four consecutive occasions and perhaps we’ll see them run their opponents ragged in this clash.

However, it’s important to keep a note of team selection, with Neymar and Mbappe potentially given more rest time and the same might apply to Angel Di Maria and Marquinhos along with other members of the squad.

Tuchel has enough squad depth to ensure that PSG still get the job done and perhaps we’ll see a professional approach to the match, with William Hill offering a tempting 1.67 about the visitors leading at half-time and full-time.

On the basis that PSG could be missing some firepower, we’re prepared to go slightly against the grain and punt on a relatively low-scoring game. Lens are likely to spend most of the time defending and something like a 2-0 win for the visitors would be more than ample on this occasion.
