Lyon vs PSG Betting Tips
You might think that both teams are probably preoccupied with thinking about their future in the Champions League. Lyon have managed to beat Juventus at home and in 13 days, they’re playing the Italian giant in Turin. PSG, on the other hand, have lost to Borussia Dortmund. However, they are playing the second leg at home. That game is scheduled to happen in a week’s time. The Champions League is still far away, so the two French heavyweights can focus on the cup game.
Lyon got to the final four of the French Cup after eliminating Marseille in the quarter-final. They also beat Nantes and Bourg en Bresse on their Coupe De France journey. Lyon’s opponent, PSG, destroyed Dijon in the quarterfinal by 6:1, while also beating Pau FC, Lorient, and Linas-Montlhery in the previous stages of the competition.
Obviously, knowing how much money was invested in PSG, you would assume that this team is the favorite in every match against a French rival. That might be true in this case as well, but Lyon mustn’t be underestimated. This team has been playing at a very high level this entire season, in all competitions, they’ve been taking part in.
They are in 5th place in Ligue 1 at the moment. The reason why they aren’t higher in the rankings is that they dropped too many points in the first half of the season. However, in a recent couple of weeks, Lyon has been pretty good. The same goes for the Champions League, as well as the French Cup.
Lyon also has a decent record against PSG in matches played on their turf. In fact, Lyon has won three out of the previous five duels with PSG played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. However, when these two met in Paris in January, PSG won by 4:2.
Another PSG is expected to happen this time as well, although you can be sure Lyon are going to give the Parisians a run for their money.
