PSG host Lyon in one of the most exciting matches in Europe this weekend.

The Parisians have started the season in an expectedly stunning fashion after they broke the transfer records twice to bring in attacking reinforcements during the summer.

They will be looking to widen the gap at the top of the league table when rivals Lyon visit them in this game.

They are currently on a run of 7 consecutive wins and they have scored 5 or more goals in 3 of their last 4 league games.

The attacking trio of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edison Cavani are beginning to form an understanding and that could see them demolish Lyon in this game.

Lyon have collected 11 points from their last five league games and they are currently just 4 points behind league leaders PSG.

They tend to also allow their opponents score often as 3 of their last 4 games has ended with both sides scoring.

Lyon are one of the underachieving clubs in Europe but they hope that the likes of Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fekir can fire them up the league table as well as lead them to Ligue 1 glory this season.
