PSG vs. Lyon Match Preview & Statistics
Paris Saint-Germain Injuries and Stats
Paris Saint-Germain has a solid squad this season with crucial attackers, like:
- Kylian Mbappé
- Moise Kean
- Mauro Icardi
- Ángel Di María
They are currently in second place in the Ligue 1 table and have a chance to be first because they are only a point behind Lille. Some key players are out with injuries until the end of December, like:
- Neymar – ankle ligaments
- Mauro Icardi – strain
- Pablo Sarabia – pelvis injury
- Abdou Diallo – pelvis injury
Until the next match they will play against Lyon, these footballers will be back in action, so we can assume that the tides will turn in PSG’s favor. If the team doesn’t get their form back in March, then they will probably lose to Lyon for a second time this season. We will keep tabs on both teams and inform you if any new crucial changes arise.
Olympique Lyonnais Form and Injuries
Lyon is currently third in the Ligue 1 table, and they are only behind PSG and Lille. The club either won or ended in a draw all of their recent matches, which helped them climb the league table’s ranks. Their current squad is solid, and attackers like Karl Toko Ekambi and Memphis Depay already have seven goals scored in Ligue 1 matches. Tino Kadewere is following close behind with five goals. They don’t have any injured players, which is a good thing, but there is still much time until March 2021. If they are lucky, no injuries will occur on the field or in training, and they can continue to play like this and climb the league ladder. During their last match against PSG, Kadewere scored a winning goal, but at the time, many of PSG’s players were sidelined with injuries. When both clubs meet again, key PSG players wouldn’t be sidelined, and Lyon’s chances aren’t that great.
Our Best Betting Tips on Paris Saint-Germain vs. Olympique Lyonnais
Mos punters who enjoy betting on Ligue 1 matches choose the following markets:
- Match Result
- Both Teams to Score
Goalscorer markets are a hit when it comes to football betting. It doesn’t matter if you are betting on a first, last, or anytime goalscorer. It is fun to predict who will score the goals in the match. Usually, this market is combined with others in ACCAs or combination bets, and people wager on footballers who have a high tendency of scoring, like strikers. PSG has impressive attackers, and if they aren’t injured, it’s an excellent choice to place a bet on them to score a goal on any of the goalscorer markets.
Both Olympique Lyonnais and Paris Saint-Germain are capable and established French teams. If we look at the stats, you would think that betting on PSG is the right decision because historically, they won more games against Lyon, but relying on only that is a bad plan. You will have to look at both teams’ recent form, players, injuries, and more if you want to pick the winner. For example, in November, PSG played Lyon and lost, even though the head-to-head stats were on PSG’s side. When choosing a match-winner, you have to think about it. We will be sure to inform you of any relevant predictions when bookies release odds for the match.
Both Teams to Score
When two teams with high-quality attackers play against each other, it’s normal to wager on the “Both Teams to Score” markets. Bookmakers offer either the one market or combination markets, such as:
- Both Teams to Score and Match Result
- Both Teams to Score in First or Second Half
- Both Teams to Score Two or More Goals
- Both Teams to Score No Draw
We believe that both teams will be in better form by March, which means that betting on this market will be a good thing.
