Lyon – Paris St-G Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 15:00

A win over Lyon would see them move one step closer to regaining the trophy and we predict that both teams will go for a victory in Sundays football match. Les Parisiens rolled over Dijon (8-0) in their last league match and thanks to the triumph they cemented top position in the Ligue 1 standings. All eyes will be on Groupama Stadium when Olympique Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain face each other in the Ligue 1 derby. Les Gones are eyeing a place in the Champions League and they are desperate to grab something from the classic against Unai Emerys troops. Lyon dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Angers at the weekend, but they proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Guingamp on Wednesday evening. A lively contest is on the cards and we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

When Laurent Blancs team travelled to the Stade Gerland last season the Ligue 1 landscape was much different, as Paris Saint-Germain trailed Olympique Lyonnais by two points. They would ultimately overcome their challengers and now, 12 months later, there are no challengers. Although Lyon go into the weekend in fifth place, just two points off the Champions League places, they are 34 points behind the Parisians.

Paris SG lost only one match from the previous 5 played before this match with Lyon.The attacking skills of Paris SG are common, they won 3events from the last 5 played. Paris SG are ranked on the 2nd place in the standings with 87 points, 83 goals scored and 27 goals received this season in Ligue 1.In their last match they draw against Caen.

Historical Precedents

Bordeaux got their first win of the season last week as they beat Dijon 2-0. Bordeaux had ten shots but none of them commanded an XG value of over 0.09 which shows that many of their efforts were speculative and they were lucky to score twice. Loris Benito and Hwang Ui-Jo got the goals for the Girondins but it wasnt a stellar performance from Bordeaux as they scored through individual brilliance rather than calculated build up play.

Now they will face a huge test with the visit of Lyon. PSG are still in a prime position to win their fifth straight title as they are just 3 points behind leaders Monaco. The current Ligue 1 champions are still unbeaten at home and have won 9 of their 14 games so far.With Monaco having a vastly superior goal difference, the gap is effectively 4 points so Unai Emerys side will most probably need every point available if they are to retain their crown.

Formed by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain in 1970, Paris Saint-Germain or as they call it PSG is the most successful club in French football with 31 domestic titles to their name. Having won six Ligue 1 title so far, a record ten Coupes de France, a record six Coupes de la Ligue, six Trophees des Champions and one Ligue 2 title, PSG are also one of only two French clubs to ever win a European title.

Bruno Genesio enjoyed an exciting start to his term in charge, but three wins in his last six games and defeats to Bastia and Lille have shown that OL still have the same inconsistencies that plagued Hubert Fournier before his dismisal. PSG have FC Nantes 32-game unbeaten run in their sights; week 28 puts them five games away from equalling the 1994/95 one-season record and a game with Guingamp away from breaking it. Lyon fans will be delighted to see Nabil Fekir back in training, but with Corentin Tolisso out and Samuel Umtiti, Christophe Jallet, Clement Grenier and Mathieu Valbuena all ruled out even the most optimistic OL fan would struggle to find positives this weekend. Apart from the visit of Monaco in March, this will be one of the biggest tests the club faces on its way to history.

Cards & Corners

PSG will hope to continue their revivalwhen Lyon visit on Sunday night in what is another crunch clash in the Ligue 1 title race. Fall out of Paris Saint-Germains Champions League exit in stunning fashion to Barcelona still hangs around in the air. PSG have no choice but to fully concentrate on the league title and all credit to them as they did just that last weekend and beat Lorient away 2-1.

Les Parisiens were crowned UEFA Cup Winners Cup champions back in 1995-96, while their last European trophy was the 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Beginning of the new millennium was particularly hard for the celebrated club who flirted with relegation in 2000s before they were bought by the Quatar Sports Investments group in 2011 when the rebirth of the Paris Saint-Germain as we know it today began.

Lyon vs Paris SG Prediction and Preview

This fixture has been a rather tight one in recent years but with Lyon getting four points from this fixture last season were going to back the hosts to win here. Both teams have scored in each of these last five clashes so were backing that here in what were predicting to be a 3-1 win for Lyon. Montpellier were very good as they beat Lyon in midweek but were backing les Gones to get back to their regularly scheduled programming here as they continue their charge for the title.
