Lyon v PSG Preview

Once again it has been all too easy for powerhouses PSG in the French top flight. They are 20 games into their domestic season and they have yet to suffer defeat. Their overall league record this season is W18 D2. If Lyon wants to take any kind of hope into this, then the two draws that PSG have been held to this season have both been in their last six games played. However they were in away games and PSG have a perfect P11 W11 record at home this season.

Earlier this season when they played host to Lyon, PSG stormed to a 5-0 victory. Their numbers just are pretty incredible because they have scored an average of 3.7 goals per home game this season. Defensively they have conceded just four goals in their 11 home fixtures. That is a clean sheet in 64% of their home victories. PSG have conceded just one goal in their last four league home games, scoring 15 goals in that sequence. Even without Neymar they still have plenty of scoring power on show with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

 

Key-Facts – Lyon v PSG

  • PSG produced a 5-0 victory over Lyon at home back in early October
  • Lyon have won only one of their last six games against PSG in all competitions (L5)
  • Lyon won this corresponding fixture last season by a 2-1 scoreline

 

Can Lyon become the first team to stop PSG from picking up any kind of return from a top-flight game this season? It has been another good solid strong season from Lyon, but there are still embroiled in a tussle with Lille for a top-two finish. Lyon have recorded an away record of W5 D4 L2 this season in the top flight. There are currently running on a six-match undefeated streak of league form, winning three of those. The away form that Lyon have produced against the better sides away from home this season hasn’t been great.

Four of their five away wins have been against sides currently sitting 15th or lower. They are just W1 D2 L2 from their six away games against sides currently in the top nine. 73% of Lyon’s away games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals so there’s a solid probably this will be a high-scoring fixture. Lyon are currently on a seven-match scoring streak away from home. Paris incidentally, the only side to have produced a better away record in the league this season than Lyon.

Lyon v PSG Predictions

PSG to win: PSG are just so strong in all departments that they are likely just to carry on regardless even with the loss of Neymar. They have one resounding win over Lyon already this season. So it is PSG to win and both teams to score at 21/to odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 31st, 2019 at 6:08 pm).
