As the Ligue 1 season makes its comeback, all eyes are set on the highly anticipated showdown between RC Lens and Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. The clash promises to be an exciting encounter, with Lens currently sitting 7th in the league table, facing off PSG, who lead the standings with 40 points.

In their previous encounter this season, PSG emerged winners with a 3-1 win. Kylian Mbappé, showcasing his brilliance, scored a brace, while Lens' Morgan Guilavogui managed to find the back of the net. Last season witnessed two intense battles between the teams, each side securing a 3-1 victory.

Lens have won only two of their last 19 matches against PSG across all competitions. However, recent history provides a glimpse of hope for the home team, as they clinched victories in two of their last three home games against the Parisians.

In their most recent Ligue 1 fixture, Lens stumbled to a 0-2 defeat against OGC Nice. The club seeks to avoid consecutive defeats since the early stages of the season between August and September. Meanwhile, PSG enters the match on an incredible run, with an unbeaten streak of 10 games across all competitions, with seven wins, three draws, and an impressive 29 goals scored.

Lens has won 22 home matches in Ligue 1 since the beginning of last season, a feat only surpassed by European powerhouses Manchester City and Barcelona in the same period. This impressive home form adds excitement as they seek an upset against the league leaders.

Probable lineups:

Lens: Samba - Danso, Medina, Haïdara - Aguilar, Diouf, Aynaoui, Frankwoski - Sotoca, Wahi, Costa.

PSG: Donnarumma - Marquinhos, Danilo, Beraldo - Zaïre-Emery, Ugarte, Vitinha, Kolo Muani - Dembélé, Mbappé, Asensio.
