A win tomorrow and PSG will make it very tough for any of the chasing pack to catch them in the race for the Ligue 1 title. Tomorrows guests currently hold an eleven point lead over second placed Lyon, with the pair going head to head in what could be a season defining match. Both sides head into the game on the back of wins, Lyon won away at Guingamp 2-0, while PSG smashed mid table Dijon 8-0 at home. There never seems to be a good time to play PSG, well not this season at least, but Lyon are in good form and have the home advantage and must have the belief they can take all three points against the best club in France.
Back in September PSG made it four straight wins against Lyon when they met for their first league meeting of the campaign. After a tight and tense first half, in which PSG dominated possession but failed to create too many noteworthy chances, it began to feel like a refereeing decision or individual mistake was going to settle the match. In the end it was two individual mistakes that saw PSG through to victory, as first Marcelo put through his own net in the seventy-fifth minute and then amazingly teammate Morel was guilty of the same offence with just four minutes left on the clock. PSG won 2-0, but this game could and probably should have ended in a draw.
With six wins from their last six matches PSG dominate the recent form guide, but Lyon have been on a good run themselves with four wins, one draw, and one defeat from their last six in all competitions. Lyon have scored in all of their last six games, while PSG have conceded in three of their six wins, so we might well be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch on Sunday.
Lyon star Fekir has scored fifteen goals in the league this season and he will be glad to see teammate Diaz back from injury, as the former Real Madrid man has netted eleven in his debut season for the club. Cavani and Neymar have made friends and the two dominate the scoring charts for PSG, with the Uruguay striker on twenty leagues goals and the Brazilian on fifteen, and it’s difficult to see anyone stopping the duo on their way to claiming the league title.
We’re confident that given their added scoring power, PSG will beat Lyon this weekend, but we can see both sides getting on the scoreboard as the hosts have one of the divisions most potent attacking threats in the form of Fekir. In terms of a final score, we think this one is going to be close, with PSG just edging out Lyon in a 2-1 win.
