Sunday evening brighten up the last and very interesting game Lyon vs Paris SG of the French Ligue 1 Round 6, which will be held in Parc Olympique Lyonnais, in Lyon. Both France favourites started their seasons differently, as PSG have already 4 straight wins, while Lyon failed to score in all 4 last matches. Read our thoughts about this Lyon vs Paris SG Ligue 1 exciting match, here below.

During the last 3 seasons, Paris Saint Germain won 4 times and twice Lyon was better. Lyon won playing only home matches, while Parisians in the 2016 year won at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. Only one match from 5 last, finished with less than 2.5 scored goals. Lyon is one of the main rivals of PSG, so this game will be very important for both teams.

Lyon

Earlier, under Bruno Génésio team played very solid football, however, they were not able to compete with such a financially strong PSG and Monaco. Even last year, they took 3rd place and qualified to UEFA Champions League. However, Sylvinho changed Bruno, and at the moment shows net impressive results at all. In Ligue 1 they perfectly started the season winning over Angers and Monaco. In total, they scored 9 goals and saved two clean sheets. This football didn’t last long, as they have now 3 matches without a win. Lyonnais lost already 7 points of possible 9 and stand at 8th place in Ligue 1.

The last game they played against Zenit Petersburg in Champions League opening group stage round. They looked stronger, had lots of chances to scored and other dangerous moments. However, at the end of the first half Azmoun scored a goal after Dzyuba pass and led the match. In the second half, already at 5oth minute, Les Gones earned a penalty and successfully implemented it. Even after lengthy attempts to score another goal, the match ended with a 1:1 score, which Lyon probably was very upset about. Under the leadership of the new coach, the team stalls at the beginning of the season and shows uncertain results. Although the squad is very seriously prepared and ready for new victories and achievements.

Paris SG

Unai Emery left the club after a win 2017/18 season and Thomas Tuchel came to change him. Last year he became champion of Ligue 1, however, failed in Champions League, what he needs to improve. At the beginning of the recent season, they already won Super Cup Final over Rennes and have 1 trophy already. In Ligue 1 they stand in the first place with 12 points after losing only to Rennes. They save 5 clean sheets in 7 matches, conceding only against Rennes.

Recently, in UEFA Champions League 1st round of Group stage, they won the most important game against Real Madrid with surprising 3:0 result. They played with the rotational attacking lineup, as no one from main prayers could play. Sarabia, Icardi and Di Maria changed injured and suspended Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe. They played very beautiful football and seemed that they plying against the middle-class team. Di Maria took leadership, scored double and proved Real that he was worth playing in Kings Club until now. In general, PSG showed a very confident game and with the same mood and goals, they will arrive to Lyon.

Unfortunately, Thilo Kehrer, Kylian Mbappe, Julian Draxler, Edison Cavani and Colin Dagba will miss next game due to injuries. Neymar looks fully fit, he played for Brazil in the international break and should be ready to face Lyon. He missed the game against Real Madrid due to suspension, but on Sunday he should return and prove that he is still one of the strongest planet players.
