Paris Saint Germain vs Olympique Lyon Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
French Ligue 1
When: February 04, 01:30 AM, IST
Where: Parc Olympique Lyonnais
Olmpique Lyon set their eyes on the toughest challenge of the season as they get prepared to host champions and current table leaders Paris Saint Germain at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday Evening.
With just one defeat in their last 20+ games across all competitions, it won’t be wrong to say Lyon are on quite a roll this season. That run could come to a crushing end though when they take on the mighty PSG, who are the only undefeated side across the top 5 European Leagues this season. Lyon will be upbeat though considering their record against the champions, but all that gets belittled when compared to PSG’s form this season. If Lyon walk away with a point from this one, they’ll be just four points shy of Lille for the second spot.
Football hasn’t witnessed many teams dominating a season as PSG have done this year. They’ve managed a whopping 56 points from their 20 games so far, the most ever recorded in French Ligue 1 at this stage of the season. They won’t have Neymar in this all important game, but even PSG’s bench looks strong enough to give any side in the world a run for their money. They don’t have a particularly good record against Lyon and they’ll be itching to change it now more than ever.

Paris Saint Germain vs Olympiqie Lyon Team News:
Injured: Neymar has been ruled out due to an injury and will remain a long term absentee. Marco Veratti too will remain sidelined due to injury.
Suspended: None. Adrien Rabiot will remain out of the side despite his transfer menace now sorted.
Questionable: New signing, Leandro Paredes, is expected to start on Sunday, with Marquinhos alongside him in the midfield.
Key Players: Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani
Injured: No new injuries trouble Lyon and on the positive side of it, Leo Dubois is set to return to the Playing11.
Suspended: None. Marcal will make a return to the side to strengthen Lyon’s defence though after completing his suspension.
Questionable: The question is more or less regarding Lyon’s formation as a 3-man defence may not be an ideal pick with Mbappe in the opposition.
Key Players: Memphis Depay, Nebil Fekir
Paris Saint Germain: Areola (GK); Meunier, Kimpembe, Kurzawa, Silva; Marquinhos, Paredes; Mbappe, Di Maria, Draxler; Cavani
Olympique Lyon: Lopes (GK); Marcal, Marcelo, Denayer; Dubois, Ndombele; Aouar, Mendy; Fekir; Depay, Dembele
PSG have been nothing short of being rampant this season with almost nothing dropped. But they will be aware of how vulnerable they are when either of Mbappe or Neymar sits out. They have a crucial Champions League fixture against Manchester United coming up which again will test their strength to the core. Lyon will be happy to walk away even with a point against the leaders, a defeat to end PSG’s undefeated streak? Even better! All that is just a mere possibility though! The most probable result which we expect tomorrow, rather surprisingly is Lyon 3-1 PSG.
