PSG v LYON BETTING PREVIEW
PSG have been in great shape and have a seven-match winning streak behind them, including a 0-5 awya success against Celtic in their Tuesday’s Champions League clash. Unay Emery's men have thus netted 5 or more goals in three of their last 4 matches, with another very convincing win against Saint-Etienne (3-0) earned in the process. As to direct matches, PSG have won their last 6 home matches against Lyon in all competitions.
Unai Emery is expected to play with a 4-2-3-1 system. Edinson Cavani will spearhed the attack while Neymar, Kylian Mbappè and Julian Draxler should start as offensive midfielders. Alternatively, Emery could also go for a 4-3-3 formation. In that case Draxler would make room to another midfielder. In defense, Presnel Kimpembe could come back into defence after being rested midweek, while Thomas Meunier looks to do the same at right back. Angel Di Maria and Javier Pastore are unlikely to feature.
Lyon are also yet to taste defeat in six competitive matches so far. Bruno Genesio’s team have bagged 11 points in five games and netted 11 goals in the process and currently sit in third place in the league table. Anyway, their 1-1 Europa League draw at Apollon on Thursday was their third in four fixtures. Lyon were beaten by PSG three times last year, in the French Champions’ Trophy and twice in the league. They have won just one of their last 11 meetings between the two, with that sole victory coming in February 2016.
In-form Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fekir will lead the line up front, with Memphis Depay and Bertrand Traorè out wide. Jordan Ferri is doubtful with a calf problem while Pape Cheikh Diop is still sidelined by a similar issue. Tanguy Ndombélé could get a first start alongside Lucas Tousart in midfield here. In defense, Jeremy Morel could be rested, with Mouctar Diakhaby his likely replacement.
