Ligue 1 presents what is sure to be an electrifying clash on Sunday night as French champions PSG travel to league leaders Lille. Only a point separates the two sides, as PSG look to knock Lille off the top of the table.

Both sides have been in good form of late, winning four of their last five matches in all competitions.

Lille will look to make it four consecutive Ligue 1 wins as Christophe Galtier's side have only lost one game this season, and are unbeaten at home in all competitions.

Thomas Tuchel's PSG have already lost four games this season, but the French champions are coming off the back of a 2-0 win against Lorient, and boast the league's best attack.

The match on Sunday could be PSG's chance to take control of the league's top spot, but Lille have shown that they are more than capable of upsetting the French champions.


Lille vs PSG Head-to-Head

The head-to-head record doesn't make for good reading if you're a Lille fan, as Le Dogues have only won once in their last five meetings with PSG.

The French champions did the double over Lille last season, recording 2-0 wins both at home and away.

Lille have only beaten PSG twice in their last 20 meetings in all competitions, and a victory on Sunday would be monumental for Christophe Galtier's side.
