Lens vs PSG (December 4) betting tips and prediction
PSG performed confidently in the last match, but they did not finish their moments and shots on target successfully. I believe they will score in this match though. Besides, they have conceded a goal or more in six of the last seven games. Lens have scored in five of the last six fixtures and in three of the last four H2H games against Paris Saint-Germain. Both teams are able to score in this match.
PSG are good to win this game. But we will be unlikely to see a total over 3.5 goals, because an opposite outcome has played out in the last two H2H fixtures.
