Lyon vs Paris Saint-Germain Preview

Lyon vs Paris Saint-Germain

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade des Lumières

Date: 3rd February 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

PSG’s financial power has made them almost invincible in France Ligue 1 and that has bought them so much of their success in recent times even though a Champions League trophy is still amiss.

Lyon and the rest have had to settle for second best in the league table and Les Gones will be looking to win some pride when they host the league leaders in this game.

Lyon are currently 3rd in the league table, the same position they finished in last season and they will hoping to do better come the end of the season.

However, after 22 games, they trail Lille by 3 points and dropping points in this game would only extend that gap.

The home side were beaten by Strasbourg a couple of weeks back, but they have managed to recover well to come into this game undefeated in their last 5 games –  the last 3 have been wins for them.

PSG remain one of the few unbeaten sides in Europe in their league this season and their financial power and array of star players makes that less of a surprise.

They have won 18 and drawn 2 of their 20 league games this season and it is this sort of game that most of their players love to showcase themselves.

They beat Lyon 5-0 the last time these teams met.

Bookmakers have priced PSG up as odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game.

Goal markets point to a high-scoring affair as over 2.5 goals is currently trading on while Edison Cavani and Junior Neymar are joint favourites to score the opening goal of the game.
