PSG vs LYN Dream11 Team Prediction: A top of the table clash sees Lyon travel to the capital to take on Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1. PSG are currently first in Ligue 1 with a 2-point lead over second and third-placed (at the time of writing) Lille and Lyon. The Parisians have just 1 loss in their last 11 Ligue 1 games, at the hands of AS Monaco. They also successfully qualified for the Champions League Round of 16 with a convincing 5-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir. They are on a 3-game winning streak and will look to keep that going against Lyon. Les Gones have begun the season very well and are unbeaten in their last 11 games and have 6 wins in their last 7 games, including a 4-game winning streak. They will look to occupy top spot in the table with a win as a loss only puts them 5 points off of that elusive Ligue 1 title.

A) Paris Saint-Germain Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Juan Bernat is a confirmed long-term injury with the game coming too soon for Mauro Icardi and Pablo Sarabia who are both injured.
Doubtful: Julian Draxler is back in training but it remains to be seen if he is fit enough to start.
Expected changes: PSG played a 3-5-2 against Lyon but should revert back to a 4-3-3 against Lyon. Layvin Kurzawa should be given the nod ahead of Mitchel Bakker alongside Alessandro Florenzi, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe ahead of Keylor Navas. Danilo Pereira will be eyeing a starting spot but is likely to miss out. The 3-man midfield should consist of Idrissa Gana Gueye, Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes. Kylian Mbappe and Neymar should spearhead the frontline with Angel Di Maria occupying the right-flank.
PSG Starting XI (probable):
Keylor Navas (GK)
Idrissa Gana Gueye
Angel Di Maria
B) Lyon Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Rayan Cherki received his marching orders against Metz and will begin his suspension against PSG.
Doubtful: Rudi Garcia has no doubtful players for the PSG vs LYN Dream11 Prediction.
Expected changes: The away side are likely to go for a rather unchanged side against PSG with only a couple of changes. Anthony Lopes saved a penalty in the last game and should carry on between the sticks behind an unchanged backline of Mattia De Sciglio, Marcelo, Jason Denayer and Maxwel Cornet. Thiago Mendes should replace Bruno Guimaraes in the heart of midfield with Lucas Paqueta and Houssem Aouar on either side of him. Tino Kadewere and Karl Toko Ekambi should start up front on either side of captain, Memphis Depay.
Lyon Starting XI (probable):
Anthony Lopes (GK)
Mattia De Sciglio
Karl Toko Ekambi
PSG vs LYN Today Match Prediction: Bookies have placed Lyon as the underdogs for this game and that might be doing the Les Gones a disservice. Bet365 and SkyBet have placed a win for the home team at 1/2 and a Lyon win at 17/4 and 9/2 respectively. Rudi Garcia’s men will know what is at stake with a chance to break the monopoly and sheer dominance of PSG in the French league. However, their inability to convert draws into wins might cost them. As for the French Champions, normal service resumes after a slow start with a slump where they lost to Monaco. The PSG vs LYN Today Match Prediction will be an interesting one with games like this determining the dynamics of the league.
