Lyon – Paris St-G Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 15:00

Bordeaux got their first win of the season last week as they beat Dijon 2-0. Bordeaux had ten shots but none of them commanded an XG value of over 0.09 which shows that many of their efforts were speculative and they were lucky to score twice. Loris Benito and Hwang Ui-Jo got the goals for the Girondins but it wasnt a stellar performance from Bordeaux as they scored through individual brilliance rather than calculated build up play.

Formed by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain in 1970, Paris Saint-Germain or as they call it PSG is the most successful club in French football with 31 domestic titles to their name. Having won six Ligue 1 title so far, a record ten Coupes de France, a record six Coupes de la Ligue, six Trophees des Champions and one Ligue 2 title, PSG are also one of only two French clubs to ever win a European title.

Form Summary

This is the fifth time these clubs meet this season, and currently the aggregate score is 12-2 the Coupe de la Ligue game was the closest Lyon came to picking up a result and that was against a weakened PSG XI. But its hard to predict anything but an away victory. History is the only thing really going in Lyons favour for Sundays game: PSG have only won once in Lyon in the last 10 years, when a Jeremy Menez goal handed the away side the Ligue 1 title.

*Ligue 1

PSG will hope to continue their revivalwhen Lyon visit on Sunday night in what is another crunch clash in the Ligue 1 title race. Fall out of Paris Saint-Germains Champions League exit in stunning fashion to Barcelona still hangs around in the air. PSG have no choice but to fully concentrate on the league title and all credit to them as they did just that last weekend and beat Lorient away 2-1.

Lyon will be glad to be back at home for this one though as the Groupama has been a great hunting ground for them in recent matches. This was a surprisingly poor performance from Lyon as they had started the season in such great fashion with a flurry of goals.
