Team News: Lyon
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Lyon gaffer Peter Bosz to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group. Julian Pollersbeck (Knee Surgery) is out of contention.
It’s our opinion that Lyon will probably use a 4-4-2 formation for the game featuring Anthony Lopes, Malo Gusto, Thiago Mendes, Castello Lukeba, Nicolas Tagliafico, Tete, Corentin Tolisso, Maxence Caqueret, Karl Toko Ekambi, Moussa Dembele and Alexandre Lacazette.
Team News: PSG
PSG manager Christophe Galtier has to choose a team with limited availability. Keylor Navas (Minor Knock), Renato Sanches (Minor Knock), Timothée Pembélé (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Presnel Kimpembe (Hamstring Injury) will miss out on this game.
From our viewpoint, Les Rouge-et-Bleu appear most likely to utilise a 3-4-3 system with a starting lineup of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, Marquinhos, Danilo Pereira, Achraf Hakimi, Fabian, Marco Verratti, Nuno Mendes, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
For this match, we think that Lyon have the firepower to put one past this Paris Saint-Germain outfit, but a single goal might not be enough to avoid a loss.
We are therefore anticipating a close game with a 1-2 advantage for Paris Saint-Germain at full-time. There looks to be little in this one.
