Lyon vs PSG – Ligue 1 Betting Tips

Lyon welcomes League leaders PSG in this crunching fixture at their home ground. Lyon seemed to have stalked in December following a series of unwanted results, and these results have seen them occupy the 13th position after 18 games played.

Star-studded PSG sits comfortably at the top of the table at 46 points even after drawing 3 of their last 5 games. 

The French Ligue 1 returns for 2022, and this match has been scheduled to spice things up. Even though Lyon has fallen below their minimum best, they’re still a threat, but we don’t know how much of a threat against PSG just yet.

Below are the team news and tips for this match:

Lyon Form and Team News

Lyon has been disappointing this season. They were the second or third best Ligue 1 team, but now they’re sitting 13th at the table. 

They have won just 1 of their last 5 Ligue 1 matches, drawn 3, and lost 1. Out of the 18 matches played this season, they have won 6, drawn 7, and lost 5, accumulating just 24 points.

In all competitions, Lyon has been out of form that they didn’t win a single game in December, losing 1 and drawing 4.

For the team news, Lyon has 3 players out of this fixture due to injury, and they’re Jason, Sinaly, and Henrique.

PSG Form and Team News

PSG hasn’t been in great Ligue 1 form, but when their stats are checked over the last 10 games in all competitions, it becomes obvious they’re king of Ligue 1.

The star-studded team has just lost 1 of their last 10 games in all competitions, drawing 3 and winning 6 games. However, their last 5 games in Ligue 1 have seen them play out a draw 3 times and win just 2 times.

They have already started 2022 on good footing with a 4-0 win over Vannes in their cup match and would love to continue with that confidence for this game.

For the team news, Lionel Messi was left out of the cup tie due to a positive covid-19 test, and we don’t know if he will feature in this match. Other players likely out of this fixture are Danilo, Draxler, Neymar, Bernat, and keeper Donnarumma.

Our Tipsters Angle

As much as Lyon hasn’t been in good shape recently, this match is always a rival clash with history. Lyon hasn’t been winning their recent matches, but they haven’t been losing either, and that puts them in a good position not to be underestimated.

PSG struggled in their recent games and being hit with injuries, or match fitness has tainted their recent results.

Both teams would love to win this game, especially Lyon. They need to get their season back on track or lose qualifications to the European top club competitions.

Below are our tips for this fixture:

Tip 1:  PSG to Win

Even though PSG looks disjointed when playing, they have always managed to sneak out a win in their fixtures. In the last 5 away matches in all competitions, PSG have won 3 and drawn 2.

Also checking their H2H, PSG has their last 3 away matches they clashed with Lyon. The last time Lyon won PSG while at home was in 2019.  

With Lyon being defensively porous and PSG having a dangerous attack, we think PSG would win this one, and a PSG win is available at Casumo Bookie at 1.83 odds.

Tip 2:  PSG +1 Corner Kick Handicap

PSG love to control their games, and with the nature of this game, they should do that with ease. This means that most attacks will be on the PSG side, leaving Lyon to concede corners. 

The last 3 meetings between these sides have seen PSG win twice in corner kicks and draw 1. Also, PSG has won corner outcomes in 70% of their games this season. 

We would have gone for a full PSG to win the corner kicks of this game, but we decided to play it safe and gift PSG +1 corner kicks.

PSG +1 corner kick handicap is placed at 1.41 odds at the Casumo Sportsbook.

Conclusion

This Ligue 1 cracker will surely spice up the weekend of Ligue 1 fans. It’s not yet known if Lionel Messi would feature in this match since Neymar is injured.

However, whoever Pochettino fields in replacing the players in doubt know this fixture’s history and would strive to win it for Paris.
