Match Preview & Team News
The current situation in the league is that Lille holds first place with 63 points, followed by PSG and Lyon who have 60. Remaining nine games are going to be extremely interesting to follow, as well as this derby match. Lyon could potentially take advantage of Paris’ recent crisis and leave them out of the title race. Hosts have six victories in the last nine domestic games, while losing only one game. Odds are going in favour of PSG but not by far – away win is offered at 6/5 odds, while chances for Lyon are lower at 19/10. Read on our Ligue 1 betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Rudi Garcia’s men were extremely lucky to avoid a loss during the last week on an away day. They were playing Reims and barely escaped with one point thanks to the stoppage time goal scored by Kadewere. Islam Slimani has been playing way under expectations, scoring zero goals in this campaign. That definitely can’t be said for the attacking trio Depay – Ekambi – Kadewere which scored total of 36 goals! They will be the biggest danger for PSG’s back line.
Lyon haven’t been consistent at this venue recently though, losing to Metz and Montpellier, while defeating Bordeaux, Strasbourg and Rennes. As mentioned above, PSG have lost to Nantes last Sunday in a shocking manner after having a lead. Pochettino talked about loss of energy in the second half, but overall it turned out that replacing Di Maria was a bad call.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
We are not expecting a lot of goals in this clash even though both sides have incredible attacking potential. Simply said, there is a lot on stake here, so both sides will be careful in the early stages at least. Under 3.5 FT at 3/5 seems like a big banker.
Lyon defeated PSG in their first divisional meeting this season 1-0. Saints have been in very unpredictable state right now, so home win draw no bet at 11/10 is going to be our option number two.
