Lyon vs PSG Preview
Caio Henrique’s corner met the head of Benoit Badiashile to give Monaco the lead at the Stade Louis II, before Guillermo Maripan connected with a free kick from the left wing not long after.
Lyon did counter in the dying minutes with a clever volley from Karl Toko Ekambi, but it was too little, too late for Les Gones, who have now lost two consecutive Ligue 1 games after a midweek setback to Lorient on September 7.
Lyon’s great start to the season has faded into insignificance with back-to-back losses, and Les Gones currently sit fifth in the table, six points behind forthcoming opponents PSG and four behind Lens in third.
Toko Ekambi’s consolation in the loss to Monaco means that Lyon have now scored in 16 straight Ligue 1 games, demonstrating an area where their troubles do not exist, but Bosz’s side have only kept one clean sheet in their previous ten domestic games.
It has been over four and a half years since Lyon last experienced three straight losses in Ligue 1, but PSG are determined to inflict more agony on their fellow powerhouses, even if it means breaking the hosts’ eight-game domestic winning streak at home.
Lionel Messi has shattered yet another record. So far this season, the 35-year-old has been praised for his vision and assists, but goalscoring feats were on the menu in midweek as PSG came from behind to defeat Maccabi Haifa in Champions League Group H.
Following Tjaronn Chery’s goal for the Israeli champions, Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe reacted for Les Parisiens, with the former scoring in the Champions League against a record 39th opponent – surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s 38 – for a record 18th season in a row.
Christophe Galtier’s team relied on their legendary offensive triad to get them over the line in Israel, and they also scored just one goal in a 1-0 win over Brest last weekend, ensuring that they remained clear of second-placed Marseille on goal difference at the top of the Ligue 1 table.
The victory over Maccabi Haifa was the capital club’s fifth in a row in all competitions, as well as their sixth in a row away from home in all competitions. Not only that, but PSG has scored at least three goals in each of their last nine road games.
Galtier would have been thrilled to see his team secure three consecutive clean sheets in Ligue 1 last weekend, and PSG have only lost one of their past eight games with Lyon in all competitions, with last season’s match at the Groupama Stadium ending 1-1.
Lyon’s center-back Jerome Boateng was expected to recover from a muscular ailment in time for the trip to Monaco, but he did not make the cut and has subsequently suffered a setback in his recuperation.
Boateng and goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck (knee) will not be present on Sunday, but Bosz is otherwise well-stocked for the clash with the champions and will no sure consider changes following last weekend’s defeat.
Thiago Mendes’ spot in defense alongside Castello Lukeba appears to be safe for the time being while Boateng recovers, while 19-year-old Rayan Cherki is pressing for his first start of the season after providing his third assist in six games for Toko Ekambi’s goal at Monaco.
Meanwhile, PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe suffered a hamstring injury against Brest, and the France international is anticipated to miss the next six weeks – Danilo Pereira is presently filling in at center defense.
Keylor Navas missed the trip to Maccabi Haifa due to back troubles but has recently returned to the squad, but Renato Sanches’ injury woes continue, with an adductor problem.
Despite the presence of Carlos Soler and Fabian Ruiz, Galtier has been reluctant to disrupt Marco Verratti and Vitinha’s midfield partnership, both of whom are expected to start on Sunday.
The only alterations for PSG might be in the full-back positions, where the rested Achraf Hakimi and Juan Bernat will try to unseat Nordi Mukiele and Nuno Mendes. Off the field, the reigning champions will be without their away fans, who have been barred from traveling owing to the usage of pyrotechnics in their September 3 victory over Nantes.
Lyon’s potential starting lineup is as follows: Lopes; Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico; Caqueret, Lepenant, Tolisso; Tete, Lacazette, Toko Ekambi.
PSG’s likely starting lineup is as follows: Donnarumma; Pereira, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Verratti, Vitinha, Bernat; Messi; Mbappe, Neymar
Lyon vs PSG Prediction:
Lyon 1-3, according to us. PSG (Paris Saint-Germain)
Regardless of how shaky Lyon’s defense is, Bosz’s side is always a threat moving forward, and another bad start for PSG might see them pay the price, as they did against Maccabi Haifa.
Les Gones’ porous defense, on the other hand, is there to be exploited by PSG’s star-studded trio, and we can only see the Parisiens juggernaut rolling on before the international break.
