PSG did it again. After going down a goal at home during a subpar first half which drew whistles from the Parc des Princes supporters, PSG's stars pulled off another come-from-behind home win, 2-1 against defending Ligue 1 champs LOSC Lille, extending its lead atop the standings in France.

Canadian international Jonathan David scored his league-leading eighth goal of the season for a deserved halftime lead for visiting Lille. Then Angel Di Maria and Neymar turned on the class in the final 15 minutes to help PSG score twice. Di Maria lofted a perfect cross to captain Marquinhos to equalize, and then Di Maria combined with Neymar on a wall pass and converted the winner in the 88th minute.

Reigning champions Lille will travel to league leaders Paris Saint-Germain’s den Parc des Princes for their next Ligue 1 match on Friday night. PSG are having a terrific run this season and they are currently seven points clear of second-placed Lens. However, in the recent week, PSG have failed to fire and they cannot afford such hindrance if they want to reclaim the Ligue 1 title.

On the other hand, it has been a poor season for Lille as they currently occupy the tenth spot on the Ligue 1 table, 13 points behind number 1 placed PSG. Lille were held for a 1-1 draw by Brest.

The match between Paris Saint-Germain vs Lille will start at 12:30 am (IST).
