PSG and Lyon will play against each other on the upcoming Sunday within the 30th round of the French Ligue 1. Bookmakers see the future hosts as clear favorites in this couple and it is hard to disagree with such action line, as the Parisians have been eliminated from the Champions League after a miserable defeat from Barcelona, so they are trying their best to regain the trust of their supporters, while for Les Gones the French championship has faded into the background after they’ve advanced to the Europa League quarterfinals.
After 29 played rounds in Ligue 1, PSG are on the second position in the tournament table of their country’s championship. The Red-and-Blues have 65 points in the asset and falling three points behind Monaco, which lead the French peloton. PSG have had 14 domestic matches in 2016-17 Ligue 1 season, in which they got 32 points.
Lyon, in their turn, do not always play stable in away matches. The team has played 13 away matches in Ligue 1 and celebrated success only five times. It should also be noted, that Les Gones had a very difficult match against Roma last Thursday, which was lost 1:2, but regardless of the loss, the French team did advance to the UEL quarterfinal and continues to fight for the trophy and a ticket to the UCL.
PSG are clear favorites of the upcoming game. The motivation and shape are on the Parisians’ side, plus one should not forget about the team’s players’ high class. The future hosts will long remember, how did they lost the historical chance to beat Barcelona in the Champions League and that will motivate the Parisians to reach new goals and win.
Prediction for the match: PSG to win.
