Lyon vs PSG
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 22nd September 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
They have saved the best for last as Lyon and PSG the two biggest teams in Ligue 1 will end the 6th match day on Sunday evening.
Lyon have had some great results over PSG in recent years and they started the season with such a bang, winning their opening two games and scoring 9 goals. And they did this all after losing some key players like Nabil Fekir and also with a new coach in Sylvinho. But after such a bright start perhaps some reality has set in and Lyon come into this game in poor form.
They have been beaten by Montpellier and then drew against Bordeaux and Amiens and just have not been on the ball or as sharp as one would expect against those teams. For once PSG come to visit and they will have their tails up to get their 4th win on a row. As for Lyon well they have now slipped to 8th place and are 4 points behind PSG coming into this game.
It looked as if Strasbourg were going to hold PSG to a 0-0 result in Paris which would have been a shock. However like a script from Hollywood, Neymar’s return to first team action after his summer deal fell through came to fruition as he scored a fantastic bicycle kick in the final minute of the game to rescue a win for the champions.
PSG have been in good form winning their last 3 games and as usual they are in 1st place. They have not been convincing on the road though, losing to Rennes and only beating Metz 2-0.
Lyon vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season Lyon won this fixture 2-1.
- PSG have not won in Lyon since 2016.
- 10 of the last 11 meetings have seen over 2.5 goals.
Lyon v PSG: Prediction
Lyon will up their game and be strong for this match. However, the worry here is that they are conceding too many goals.
PSG will take a lot from Neymar’s last goal, and in the Champions League in midweek they beat the mighty Real Madrid 3-0 in Paris. Confidence then seems to have been restored and they could start this game raring to go, rather than feeling intimidated like in past games it is why we think that PSG can take all of the advantages and get the win.
Because this is such an early game of the season, we should expect to see an open game and attacking one and we expect to see a few goals as a result.

PSG to beat Lyon at 1.80 (4/5)
