Team Form

Paris Saint Germain

Paris Saint Germain continue to manifest an invincible stature in Ligue 1. Their victory against Reim is enough to secure their spot this season and prevent other clubs from stealing their spotlight.

 

Overall, PSG has never tasted an ounce of defeat. They have been successful in 25 of their matches and average on 2 goals during their last 7 matches. Such form is the product of having a roster of prolific strikers on the pitch. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani’s tandem are now reaping results for the club. So far, the two has already contributed 9 goals each this season. Along with them are Lucas Moura, Maxwell, Blaise Matuidi, who would immediately add more points when given the right opportunity comes.

 

In the Champions League, the club has been delivering good performance as well. They are on top of their group and keen on moving on to the next stage of the competition. With all things going according to PSG’s plan, defeating the club proves to be a difficult feat.

 

Lyon

Les Gones’ team captain, Maxime Gonalons expressed his disappointment over the draw against Valenciennes.
Indeed, Gonalons’ frustration has its merit. They had the chance to improve their rank in Ligue 1’s table, but they lost it. They had the chance to prevent themselves from moving down the mid table but they failed.

 

The match was of vital performance not only because they needed extra points. Rather, it was more of having a safety net to catch them in the event where the odds do not go into their favor during the PSG clash.

 

Lyon shall be playing in a different territory and this aspect alone, gives their opponent the automatic edge. As the season progresses, the competition becomes tougher every day. Securing a victory means ensuring a more stable position in the table, while losing meant an opportunity for the opponent to rise up.

 

Les Gones are confronted with their away dilemmas.  Four (4) out of their 6 away matches ended in a defeat and with their current form, they are heading towards their 5th away loss this season.

 

 

Football betting tip: Paris Saint Germain 3-1 Lyon

Needless to say, PSG shall grab every chance to extend their lead. It serves a dual purpose for the club. First is the coveted silverware in Ligue 1. And most importantly, this allows them to focus on their Champions League stint.
