Olympique Lyon – PSG, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LYON - PSG
Lyon has been very tired lately and their victories have come after a great deal, but the kids have already made a series of 6 consecutive games without losing in Ligue 1 and as a host they have only 2 defeats that have come from unpretentious rivals. Lyon is in top 3, which is the goal till the end of the season, but St. Etienne and Strasbourg are very close so the kids should try to take advantage of Neymar’s absence to win something from the game.
PSG continues to steer clear of the title, but this seems to be just at paper long ago rather than a real intrigue. The main and the most important thing for Parisians is to maintain their good shape, because they have been the victim of a drop in form in the Champions League last years. Moreover, Neymar will miss 10 weeks, which means PSG must show that they are strong as a team.
Lyon did not score a goal at home just in their two losses, but in general they are mostly effective and offensive here. Meanwhile, 7 out of 9 PSG visits in the season in Ligue 1 had over 2.5 goals. Earlier in the season, Parisians won with 5-0 easily, and 9 of the last 10 matches between PSG and Lyon have always had at least 3 goals. We are now expecting the same, because both teams are able to crack against the opponent’s strong attack, so prediction – Over 2.5 goals at 1.53
