Lens vs PSG: Team news & key stats

Wesley Said and Deiver Machado are out injured for Lens while coach Franck Haise looks for a potent front force wherein he has Gael Kakua, Florian Sotoca and Arnaud Kalimuendo to choose from.

With Neymar set for a long spell on the sidelines following his injury in the St. Etienne win, Pochettino's front three is most likely to comprise of Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi.

Marco Verratti has resumed training and may have a role to play on Saturday but the same may not be said in the case of Mauro Icardi and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Key Stats:

  • Lens have won only one of their last 11 games against Paris in Ligue 1 (D4 L6), but that was in the last meeting at Stade Bollaert in the top-flight on 10 September 2020 (1-0).
  • Paris have lost 34.8% of their encounters with Lens in Ligue 1 in the 21st century (8/23) and have a worse losing percentage only against Rennes over this period among teams faced at least five times in the top-flight (35% - 14/40).
  • Lens won their last Ligue 1 encounter with Paris (1-0) and could make it two wins in a row in the top-flight against them for the first time since November 2002-March 2004 (also 2).

  • Lionel Messi has the highest differential (2.95) between his goals scored (1) and his Expected Goals (3.95) in Ligue 1 this season.
