Lyon v Paris SG Team News

Earlier in the reverse fixture in Paris, Unai Emery' men pulled off a 2-0 home win, not least because the two ridiculous own goals by Lyon helped them to that success.

In-form Lyon bounced back with a mid-week 2-0 victory against Guingamp on Wednesday after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Angers last weekends. Yet, The Kids boast a healthy run of form (W4 D1) as they're prepared to match their strengths against the Paris outfit.

While Lyon are falling 11 points behind, PSG have achieved a high with the club's biggest victory in the top-flight - 8-0 over Dijon in mid-week - having won 9 of the previous ten league outings. The Parisians look all but unstoppable on 56 points and a +52 goal difference at the top of the table.

The standout players of both teams have been Edinson Cavani, who equalled Sweden forward Ibrahimovic's haul of 156 goals for the club when he got on target in Dijon's 8-0 smashing, Neymar and Nabil Fekir, all of whom are level on goals - 15 each - scored this campaign.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Lyon: Fernando Marcal.

Paris SG: Neymar, Lucas Moura, Thiago Motta, Javier Pastore.

Conclusion and Predictions:

Truly impressive in all aspects, Lyon team make their Parc Olympique Lyonnais a fortress as they have slipped up there on only one of their last 12 occasions (W6 D5 L1) while failing to score just once over the 13 games Bruno Genesio have held at home.

So, with the attacking potential the capital club has in the front trio of Di Maria (most likely to play on the left courtesy of Neymar's absence through injury), Cavani and Mbappe, they will certainly be expected to get in just for once at least. Thus a BTTS bet looks more than reasonable to back.
