Paris Saint-Germain Preview – Parisians too strong for Lyon?

The league was cut short in France this season, but Paris Saint-Germain were crowned champions of France for a ninth time. After losing out to Monaco in the 2016-17 campaign, PSG have been French champions every year since.

Paris won 22 of their 27 Ligue 1 matches this season, scoring 75 times along the way. Thomas Tuchel’s boys were 12 points clear of second-place Marseille when the league grinded to a halt back in March.

(odds taken 0610 GMT, Thursday 30 July)

The Parisians have played one competitive match since returning to action, winning the Coupe de France last week. An early Neymar goal was enough to give Tuchel’s team a 1-0 victory over Saint-Etienne at the Stade de France.

Paris have been very good during pre-season, and the eight-time (record) Coupe de la Ligue winners are in good shape ahead of the start of the 2020-21 campaign. After sealing a ninth Ligue 1 title, will PSG win a ninth French League Cup on Friday night?

Olympique Lyonnais Preview – Can Les Gones cause an upset in the Stade de France?

Olympique Lyonnais will be glad to see the back of the 2019-20 season, as they were down in seventh when the campaign drew to a premature close. Overall, Lyon picked up just 11 league wins, drawing seven and losing ten of their 28 fixtures in Ligue 1. Les Gones missed out on UEFA Europa League qualification by a point.

Before losing to Lyon in their last competitive fixture back in March, Lyon were thumped 5-1 by PSG in the French Cup. However, they did beat Juventus 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League, with the second leg of that exciting tie coming up in August.

Lyon can salvage a poor season by winning the Coupe de la Ligue on Friday and going far in the Champions League. On their way to the last two of the French League Cup, Rudi Garcia’s troops have seen off Toulouse, Stade Brest and Lille. However, getting the better of PSG will be a tall order Les Gones.


Paris Saint-Germain vs Olympique Lyonnais Betting Advice

Since losing the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie at Borussia Dortmund, PSG have won each of their last five competitive matches, winning in Ligue 1, in the French Cup and in the Champions League. That defeat to Dortmund remains their only loss in any competition since November.


Key Facts – Paris Saint-Germain vs Olympique Lyonnais Betting Tip

  • PSG have already won Ligue 1 and the French Cup this season
  • Paris have beaten Lyon three times this term, scoring ten goals along the way
  • The Parisians have won eight of their previous ten league and cup meetings with Les Gones


These two teams have already met three times this term, with Paris winning all three. PSG have netted ten goals against Lyon this season, shipping just three at the other end.

As the Parisians look for a league and cup treble before their Champions League campaign gets back underway next month, we can see Tuchel’s Red and Blues being far too strong for Garcia’s Lyon on Friday night. Back Paris to win both halves at the Stade de France, which you can get at the strong odds of 11/4.
