Team News: Lyon
Sinaly Diomandé (Injury to the ankle), Jeff Reine-Adélaïde (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Lenny Pintor (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jason Denayer (Sprained ankle) are not available for Lyon gaffer Peter Bosz.
It’s our opinion that Lyon will probably go for a 3-4-2-1 formation in the match featuring Anthony Lopes, Damien Da Silva, Jerome Boateng, Castello Lukeba, Leo Dubois, Bruno Guimaraes, Maxence Caqueret, Emerson, Lucas Paqueta, Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele.
Team News: PSG
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Sergio Rico (Corona virus), Juan Bernat (Corona virus), Nathan Bitumazala (Corona virus), Julian Draxler (Muscle Injury), Neymar (Sprained ankle), Danilo Pereira (Corona virus) and Ángel Di María (Corona virus) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Les Rouge-et-Bleu might play in a 4-3-3 lineup, choosing Keylor Navas, Colin Dagba, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes, Ander Herrera, L. Daniel Paredes, Marco Verratti, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe.
We believe that Paris Saint-Germain will most probably have the majority of the possession and should turn some of their chances into goals.
However, Lyon could well find it tough finding the net themselves but we do see them scoring.
Our tip is for a comfortable 1-3 winning score for Paris Saint-Germain at full-time.
