Match status: 2019/20 France Coupe de la Ligue - Final
Venue: Stade de France (Paris - Saint-Denis)
With the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles already safely stashed in the cabinet, PSG will be buzzing ahead of this game. Without a doubt, they have been the best club in the league, proving to be streets ahead of every other side in the league.

No thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the Ligue 1 campaign was brought to an abrupt end, with Les Parisiens handed the league title for the umpteenth time. After only 27 games, they had already garnered a whopping 68 points, and were 12 points clear at the summit.

Now looking to add the Coupe de la Ligue trophy to their silverware cabinet, PSG will need to guard against complacency when they take on underwhelming side Lyon this Friday. Barring any upsets and surprises from the Kids, the hosts should be celebrating victory at fulltime.

PSG vs Lyon Team News

Following the close of the Ligue 1 campaign, PSG continued to train really hard with a couple of friendly games scheduled. Seeking to keep his players 100% fit, Thomas Tuchel made sure the whole squad participated in these games.

PSG were also in action against lowly Saint-Etienne in the Coupe de France finals few weeks ago. Expected to roar to victory, Les Parisiens were made to scrap really hard for the three points, with only a single goal registered in the game.

As the referee blew the final whistle, the Red and Blues looked in high-spirits as they celebrated their league cup triumph. However, there were mixed feelings for the champions as their brilliant game was marred by Kylian Mbappe’s injury blow – one that will keep him out for the next couple of weeks.

For the semifinals of the Coupe de la Ligue, PSG made a trip to the Stade Auguste-Delaune to take on in-form Reims in a match billed to go right down to the wire. Ultimately, Tuchel’s men made light work of Les Rouges et Blancs, roaring to an emphatic 3-0 victory to book a place in the finals.

Meanwhile, Lyon were pretty disappointing in the league this term, managing only 40 points from 28 games to finish seventh on the standings. The players and supporters will be gutted by their league campaign, especially as they failed to clinch European qualification.

Taking on a top side in Lille in the penultimate game of the cup competition, Lyon needed a miracle-of-sorts to stand any chances against these beasts. Ending 2-2 at regular time, the game was settled by the small matter of penalty kicks, Les Gones acing their rivals to advance to the finals.

For this fixture, PSG are clear favorites for the win. They have been the best French side over the last couple of years, turning themselves into serial Serie A champions. With the caliber of players in their ranks, they should sweep this Lyon side away pretty comfortably.

Despite the injury to Mbappe, Les Parisiens have enough ammunitions in their arsenal to ensure Rudi Garcia’s men are put to the sword.

PSG: Thilo Kehrer, Kylian Mbappe and Angel di Maria.

Paris SG vs Lyon Predictions

When it comes to h2h encounters, PSG get the nod. They have remained unbeaten against Lyon in their last four games across all competitions. Also, they hammered Les Gones 5-1 in the semifinals of the Coupe de France. To make matters worse for Lyon, they have not played any game since the Ligue 1 was canceled in March, meaning the players will be pretty rusty here. Count on PSG to secure a comfortable win here to clinch the domestic treble.
