After a curtailed 2019/20 season, Ligue 1 is back underway in France and Paris Saint-Germain begin their title defence today with a trip to Lens. Follow along with all of the action wherever you are with our Lens vs PSG live stream guide.

The Parisians will be hoping they can put their Champions League final disappointment behind them when they kick off in the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. Thomas Tuchel's side has been given an extended break following their Champions League campaign continuing into August with the team ultimately being defeated by German champions Bayern Munich.

RC Lens are newly promoted into Ligue 1 this season and have been handed a difficult start with this home tie against France's most successful side. In their opening game, Lens suffered a 2-1 defeat at Nice after going ahead after just 11 minutes.

The Blood and Gold will be hoping that PSG are still suffering from their defeat to Bayern in Lisbon last month and that they can get an early upset. PSG are also without a few big-name players with Neymar, Kyllian Mbappé, Keylor Navas, Mauro Icardi, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes, and Marquinhos all missing due to positive COVID-19 tests. Centre-back Thiago Silva also just made a move to Chelsea.
