Football Betting Tips: Olympique Lyonnais vs Paris Saint-Germain

One of the oldest rivalries in French football reunites as high flying PSG take on Lyon in what promises to be an early season clash of the titans. PSG top the table and have started the season strongly, both domestically and in Europe whilst Lyon have lacked consistency in their opening 5 league games. With 23 goals scored between them, they are the two highest scoring sides in Ligue 1 this season and goals look pretty much guaranteed.

Lyon

It has been a mixed start to the season for Lyon as they once again look to balance Champions League football in with their domestic campaign. They got off to a flyer this term, winning their first two matches – bagging 9 goals in the process. However, they haven’t won a match in any competition in over a month and won’t be relishing the magnitude of the task in front of them here.

Historically, their home form is very good and they will be looking to utilise the potent atmosphere at the Parc de Olympique to their advantage

Moussa Dembélé has bagged 5 goals in 4 appearances and along with Memphis Depay they are one of the most devastating strike forces in the division and PSG will be need to be wary of the many threats they carry.

PSG

PSG are still very much the dominant force in French football and they will once again mount their campaign to combine domestic success with European glory this season. Much has been made of the relationship with record signing Neymar and his relationship with the club but for the time being the Brazilian looks to be staying and PSG are sure to benefit from that on the pitch.

Their win over Real Madrid in midweek was a real barometer of the progress they have made under Thomas Tuchel and despite a surprise defeat to Rennes earlier in the season; they have dominated the rest of their matched and sit top of the table on goal difference.

In Kyllian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar they possess one of the most potent strike forces in Europe and if they fire, Lyon could be in for a long evening.
