Lyon vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st March 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Lyon).
A huge clash will take place in France on Sunday evening when Lyon and PSG play.
Lyon are in 3rd place and three points behind the league leaders Lille but they are on the same points (60) as PSG. Whoever loses this isn’t officially out of the league running but if Lille win then they would be six points behind.
In truth Lyon have been brilliant this season but some of their recent form hasn’t been and the club have been dropping points. From their last 15 on offer they have earned 8, and that simply isn’t good enough as we enter the last hurdle of the league championship.
Last weekend Lyon drew 1-1 at Reims and the club have gone their last 3 games undefeated which will be encouraging.
PSG were shocked at home last weekend as they lost 2-1 to Nantes. No one was expecting that result but still the club are only 1 win away from being on the top standings. The slight worry will be that PSG have lost 2 games from their last four which isn’t like them.
Away from home PSG have won nine games but that’s only good enough to have the 3rd best record in the league. However they have won their last 3 away games in a row which could set them up nicely for this one.
Lyon vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this game 1-0.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Lyon won 1-0.
- There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Lyon vs PSG: Prediction
Lyon have recorded some great results over PSG and it is why the bookmakers have made PSG an excellent price to win this.
We don’t normally see good prices for PSG to win games in France and it is tempting to back them. It is true that PSG have blown hot and cold this season and they have one eye on the Champions League which is what they really want.
At the same time Lyon have been questionable in form in the last month and if PSG start the game with authority we think they can win this game and give many problems for the home side.
