PSG vs Lyon Free Betting Predictions
With 19 victories won in the first 23 days of the championship, PSG leads the ranking with 12 points ahead of the Marseille rival. Still qualified in the two national cups and in the Champions League, all the lights are green for the Ile-de-France club which can still have a full season. Undefeated since November 2, Thomas Tuchel’s men have won their last 7 games in all competitions. They have just beat Monaco (1-4), Lille (0-2), Montpellier (0-5) and finally Nantes (1-2) Tuesday evening during a meeting where they ended up getting scared after mastering the first 70 minutes.
For its part, Lyon is still dragging a totally missed start to the season, the worst it has experienced in over 25 years. Indeed, OL is only 6th in the ranking and still have 7 points behind the 3rd step of the podium occupied by Stade-Rennais. After perfectly negotiating its first meetings in 2020 and winning 7 victories in a row in all competitions including the last against Toulouse (3-0) and Nice in the Coupe de France (1-2), the Gones fell last Sunday against Nice again (2-1). Wednesday evening, the men of Rudi Garcia were also very disappointing against Amiens (0-0) and did not reassure themselves before this perilous trip.
