THE PREDICTION

Paris have several players forced to isolate after testing positive for coronavirus and that includes their first-choice attack as Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria and Icardi are all absent. That leaves them incredibly thin on the ground for this rearranged match and Thomas Tuchel is forced to field a significantly weakened starting line-up here. Lens have some absentees themselves but nowhere near as drastic as those affecting the champions. The hosts will be buoyed by the team news and motivated by the fact that they did not want the initial game to postponed in the first place. They will be fired up and they will be confident of getting a result here. That said, goals will be difficult to come by for both sides and backing against both teams scoring could be the play along with under 2.5 goals in an accumulator.
