RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
Only 4 points separating the sides at the top of the table, this clash is widely billed as a potential title-decider.Holders Bayern are racing towards a ninth successive league title after another impressive campaign. However, a few mistakes on the road have kept them from being much clear at the summit.The driving factor behind Hansi Flick's juggernaut has once again been the peerless Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker has torn through every defense en route to netting a mammoth 35 goals so far.However, the striker will be a huge miss for the defending champions as he picked up an ankle injury while on international duty with Poland. He is set to be out for up to four weeks.It will be a massive confidence-booster for the Red Bulls, who won't settle for anything less than three points on Saturday as the title race hinges on the game.
Lille vs PSG
Leaders Lille boast a near perfect home record of 6W,2D from eight.
Les Dogues have amassed four wins and a draw from their last five league matches.
PSG have lost two of their last five Ligue 1 games (W2, D1).
Keep Lille on Side in Sunday’s Big Ligue 1 Showdown
PSG defeated Lille 2-0 in both Ligue 1 meetings previous season, but a different outcome looks on the cards at Stade Pierre Mauroy this Sunday with Les Dogues currently flying at the top of the table.
Lille showed huge potential when finishing fourth in Ligue 1’s curtailed 2019/20 campaign and they’ve moved onto a completely different level under Christophe Galtier this term.
Les Dogues have racked up 32 points from 15 league games and the cornerstone of success thus far has been their tremendous form at Stade Pierre Mauroy, where they’ve won six and drawn two of their eight outings.
They lead PSG by a point going into this Sunday’s evening’s huge showdown and rate an outstanding bet in the double chance market to solidify their title credentials.
The champions will inevitably prove a difficult nut to crack on the night as they will over the course of the season, but it’s fair to say that the Parisians have been a notch or two below their absolute best this season.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have gone from being almost unbeatable on the domestic front to losing four of their opening 15 games and they travel to Lille this weekend having lost two of their last five Ligue 1 assignments (W2, D1).
Overall, we feel Lille are well worth supporting at around evens to get at least a point from this contest, which could prove to be absolutely pivotal in the title race.
Les Dogues’ just sway it for us based on their home form and the fact they’ve accrued 13 points from their last five league matches overall, so we’re also predicting a 2-1 correct score in favour of Galtier’s side.
Predictions :Both teams to score
