The bedrock of Lille’s unlikely title charge has been Ligue 1’s best defence.
They have conceded just 20 goals in 33 games. They have only conceded more than one goal four times all season, and their results away to other big sides (1-0 win at PSG, 0-0 at Monaco, 1-1 at Marseille, 1-0 at Rennes) point the way for this game.
Under 2.5 goals looks really big at 4/5, although given they are only one point ahead of PSG this is a game where a draw is probably not good enough for Lille.
They have been massively overachieving their attacking xG all season and it could catch up with them here.
The result looks very hard to call, but a low-scorer looks extremely likely.
