PSG vs Lyon Prediction & Match Preview

PSG vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).

Probably the biggest fixture to take part in France is on Sunday night when PSG take on Lyon. PSG have dominated the 2010s in Ligue 1 and Lyon dominated the 2000s. Both clubs are going for the league title this season so this promises to be quite a match.

PSG smashed Istanbul 5-1 here in midweek in the Champions League to qualify for the knock out stages ahead of quality such as Manchester United and with the European competition on hold now until February PSG can really focus on defending their league title.

Unlike other seasons PSG has a lot of competition and they are only 2 points clear so they can’t afford to drop points. However that is what they did in their last home game as they were held to a surprise 2-2 draw against Bordeaux.

However it was back to winning ways last weekend as PSG beat Montpellier away from home 3-1.

Lyon are in 3rd place with 26 points and just two points behind, if they win they go past PSG. Lyon are in superb form and have won their last 4 games in a row. Indeed they have gone three months without defeat and have only lost once from 13 games.

Away form is just the same for Lyon and they have won their last 2 games in a row with no defeats in their last five.

PSG vs Lyon Head to Head

PSG beat Lyon 4-2 here in last seasons fixture.

Lyon have not won in Paris in the league since 2007.

PSG have scored 11 goals past Lyon in the last 4 league meetings.

PSG vs Lyon Prediction

PSG have the better team of course and on paper should have little trouble. But they will have a hard game on their hands. One of the reasons is that Lyon have not worked this hard over the past few weeks to blow the game in Paris.

Lyon could leave here with a loss which would be expected but they will prepare so they are not played off the pitch and receive a narrow loss rather than a huge one.

PSG should win but they are as always odds on and not very good value so instead we fancy to back Lyon but on the handicap, we also expect to see both teams to find the back of the net.
