The FFF (French Football Federation) have a habit of keeping the very best games in Ligue 1 for last and this match to wrap up match week 9 of the competition will be absolutely mouth-watering.
PSG will take on Lyon, the best team of the 2010’s against the best team of the 2000’s in France will lock horns in Paris as Lyon will try their best to stop PSG’s magnificent start to the season.
PSG have a 100% record with 8 games and 8 wins and are already 8 points in the lead. Thomas Tuchel the coach has made it clear that he wants his team to break all of the Ligue 1 records this season as PSG go in search of back to back titles. At home they have scored 14 goals and conceded just 2, and right now look unbeatable. In midweek they demolished Red Star Belgrade 6-1 in the Champions League to put their European hopes back on track.
Lyon started slowly in the league but have improved in recent weeks with wins over Marseille and Dijon, although they could only draw against Nantes last weekend. They had to play in the Champions League and came back from 2 goals down to draw against Shakhtar and really showed some character in doing so. They are currently in 5th place but 10 points behind PSG. Away from home Lyon have won just 1 game from 3 played which was against Dijon as previously mentioned.

PSG vs Lyon: Prediction
PSG are still the best team in France and they can prove that by beating a Lyon team who will be very motivated to win this game. It wouldn’t be a surprise if PSG do not lose at home all season and the quality they have on the pitch will cause Lyon too many problems.
Kylian Mbappe has gone a few games without scoring and he will be vying to do so here. Neymar is happy after his amazing performance in Europe and the camp are in good spirits. Lyon are a quality side but will play to attack because they have to and could be left exposed in defence.
