Paris Saint Germain vs Olympique Lyonnais Betting Tips

Paris Saint Germain are hosting Olympique Lyonnais in the Park des Princes, Paris on the 20th of September 2021, Monday at 00:15 IST.PSG were jolted a bit during this week’s CL game against Brugge but will Lyon be able to capitalize on that? 

Paris Saint Germain Form and Team News

Five out of five, even without their star players, PSG are steamrolling opponents at will. Paris Saint Germain are literally living a dream. They are presently the only team to have won all three Ligue games and deservedly the number one team. They had to dig deep to retain the title last season which eventually they did not and ended up conceding to Lille by a point. In this season however, it could be hard for any team in Europe or for a matter of fact, around the world let alone Ligue 1 teams to defeat this mercurial PSG team. They have assembled what many teams are considering as the Galacticos team, a dream team of sorts. For conquering France, they probably won’t require this team, they can win it quite easily. They need to win the European cup and nothing else and this team should stop at nothing less than that.

As said above, who would’ve imagined Pochettino to coach the most lethal football players presently in a single team and carry humongous expectations with him from now. Let’s see how he is responding to the pressure cooker that he finds himself in now. PSG have still not been able to assemble all the Galacticos stars which will happen anytime this season. The MNM made its first appearance last week, but couldn’t produce the desired effect, we can expect some firecrackers when they get going.

Lyon Form and Team News

Lyon are coming into this game after a scratchy start to their league games. They are presently placed in the seventh position after five games. They have won two games while drawing two and lost one game as well. Lyon in the last ten games have won just four games while drawing three matches and losing three games. Lyon would need to put their best foot forward in this season and try to win as many games as possible. For that however they will need to replicate what they have been doing right over the past few seasons and hope for the best. 

Peter Bosz, the Netherlands national has been at the helm for just five games now and it would not be fair to assess one’s performance in such a short span of time. But, Bosz is trying to do what he did with Ajax before some years which has been missing for some time now after his Ajax stint. Slimani, Moussa Dembele and Ekambi and co. are more than capable of turning any game on its head on their given day and this could be the case in the next game against the PSG as well.
