Lyon will be aiming to extend their current unbeaten run of league form to four on Sunday when they host PSG.

That’s obviously going to be a tough challenge. But there has been reasonable home form posted by Lyon this season in Ligue 1.

Can they deny the visiting league leaders a victory? PSG kicked off the weekend with a massive lead at the top of the table.

Lyon Preview – Can Lyon upset the odds?

Lyon went into the winter break in France with a three-match sequence of league draws behind them.

That left them down in 13th place in the top flight.

There has been no win for them in their last four matches played so will be hoping for a stronger output in 2022.

There is a quote of 13/5 on the win for Lyon in the match outright for football betting* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).

Given that they are facing the runaway leaders, that obviously means Lyon are big underdogs here.

Lyon have suffered just one home league defeat this season, however.

That one defeat, against Reims, leaves them with a credible W4 D4 L1 home record.

This will be their first match at home this season against a current top-five team.

Interestingly, however, three of their four home wins have come against teams who are currently in the top ten.

So they have been punching above their weight at times.

From their home games, Lyon are carrying an average of 1.9 goals per game.

So that suggests that they can be competitive.

But where things fall down just a little bit is with them having taken just one home clean sheet all season.

* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair)


Six of Lyon’s last seven home fixtures against PSG have gone above the 2.5 goal line.

Over 3.5 goals for Sunday is at a quote of even money* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).

The head to head doesn’t make for great reading for Lyon ahead of this fixture.

They have lost their last three home games against PSG in all competitions.

It was a 2-1 loss that Lyon suffered in their away game at PSG earlier this season in the league.

Lyon have scored in all home games played this season.


PSG Preview – Can PSG take maximum points?

The overall record for PSG in Ligue 1 this season is W14 D4 L1 and they are strolling to the title.

They went into the winter break with a 10 point lead at the top over Marseille.

The one league defeat that PSG suffered was at Rennes back at the start of October last year.

That’s a streak of ten undefeated for them since then (W6 D4).

PSG roll into Lyon on the weekend as the 17/20 odds-on favourites in football betting* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).

They are, after all, undefeated in 17 of their last 18 road league fixtures.

Surprisingly the one trend from their most recent matches was low scoring fixtures.

Each of PSG’s last four league games have gone under 2.5 goals (W1 D3).

So they did go off the boil a little bit in December to be fair.

They have drawn their last two away games in the top flight, both 1-1 draws being played out against Lens and Lorient.

PSG average 1.8 goals per away game this season in Ligue 1 and have gone unbeaten in five away from home.

There has been no clean sheet from PSG in their last four away games.

With that in mind and considering PSG are the favourite, the PSG to win & BTTS option is at 21/10* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).

One surprising stat from their away form is that PSG have only opened the scoring in four of ten away games this season.

They’ve conceded the opening goal in half of their away fixtures.

Still, the rest of the stats looks strong for them.

PSG hold the best away record and are head and shoulders the top-scoring team in the division.


Lyon vs PSG Betting Advice

We do think that Lyon could put up a bit of a challenge in this one and make life difficult at least for PSG.

Ultimately we have to plump for the away win, as the AFCON tournament isn’t helping Lyon out with players attending that international event.

But they look decent enough to get on the scoreboard and therefore the PSG To Win & Both Teams To Score option is the pick at 21/10* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).


Key Facts – Lyon vs PSG Betting Tip

  • Lyon have lost one home game in Ligue 1 this season
  • Lyon are on a three-match losing home streak against PSG
  • PSG have lost just one of their last 18 away matches in the league


Given that PSG have given up the first goal in half of their away matches this season and were struggling in front of goal through December, that leads us to another pick.

That is the Lyon to score first option at 7/5* (odds recorded 21:22 GMT January 7th 2022 at Betfair).

That may just be worth a play, but PSG can ultimately pull through for their fourth straight win at Lyon.
