PSG hosts Olympique Lyonnais at the Parc des Princes in the derby game of the 24th round of the Ligue 1. We will discuss this game with you in our sure win prediction today.
Far from surprising, PSG are leaders in the Ligue 1 with 58 points, having 12 points advantage in front of the second Olympique Marseille. This is not big news, of course, because we all know that Thomas Tuchel’s team is the best in France. Winning the Ligue 1 is important, but it’s pretty far from being a real challenge for the club from the capital.
Right now PSG are in a run of four consecutive wins in the French elite. Few days ago the champions travelled to face Nantes and they went home with a 2-1 win. The visitors were without the injured Neymar, but Mauro Icardi and Thilo Kehrer secured them the win.
For Olympique Lyonnais the season is not going in the way they were hoping. Les Gones are currently 6th in the league with 33 points, although the 5th Montpellier is just one point ahead. In their last two matches against Nice and Amiens SC Rudi Garcia’s team won just one point.
Olympique Lyonnais were favourites against Amiens SC in the previous round, but the game at the Groupama Stadium ended without any goals scored – 0-0. Les Gones have one of the best squads in France right now, but winning just 9 games out of 23 is simply not good enough for a club with ambitions to play in the Champions League. The manager Rudi Garcia is aware with that, too.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Olympique Lyonnais in Paris on Sunday. We expect to see PSG dominating this game, especially given the fact that Lyonnais are not in their best shape.
