Paris Saint-Germain will come against Lens at Parc des Princes in Paris on the Matchday 31 of the 2022-23 Ligue 1 season on Saturday.

It will be their 74th league meeting. No surprise here as Paris Saint-Germain were the absolute favorites in the head-to-head, having won 33 games so far; RC Lens have won 21 times to date and the remaining 19 matches have ended in draws.

Their last match took place on January 1, 2023, when the match ended in a surprise 3-1 victory for RC Lens at home. It promises to be an even more exciting clash when they meet again for the second time in the 2022/2023 Ligue 1 season.

PSG team news

Presnel Kimpembe, Nordi Mukiele and Neymar are all out for the rest of the season. Marco Verratti is still a few weeks away from returning from a hamstring problem, while Juan Bernat has an ankle injury and is expected back in May.

Fabian Ruiz could come in for Renato Sanches, who had to be substituted after just ten minutes into the Nice game with an adductor problem.

PSG have been hit by racism allegations against manager Christophe Galtier. The 56-year-old, who has denied the allegations, has been placed under protection.

PSG predicted lineup (3-5-2): 

Donnarumma; Marquinhos, Ramos, Pereira; Hakimi, Vitinha, Ruiz, Soler, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe.

Lens have won four Ligue 1 games in a row while dealing with some squad injuries. Julien Le Cardinal has a knee knock and won’t be back until early May, while fellow right back Jimmy Cabot is also out.

They’ll continue a three at the back formation with Lois Openda leading the line up front. Only five players in Ligue 1 – including Kylian Mbappe – have scored more league goals in France than the 23-year-old Belgium international.

Samba; Gradit, Danso, Medina; Sotoca, Samed, Fofana, Frankowski; Thomasson, Openda, Fulgini.
