Paris Saint-Germain vs. Lyon: Preview, Prediction, Team News, and Lineups

PSG continues their march towards the Ligue 1 title as they host Lyon at the Parc des Princes on Sunday. Both teams have been in good form lately, and with their attacking prowess, we can expect goals in this match.

PSG enters Sunday’s clash with high spirits after a remarkable 4-1 victory over Barcelona, securing a spot in the Champions League semi-final. Despite trailing 3-2 from the first leg, Kylian Mbappe's brace, along with goals from Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha, secured the win on Tuesday.

While the win against Barcelona was surprising, it underscores PSG’s recent good form. They've lost only once in their last 29 matches across all competitions, a streak dating back to November.

In Ligue 1, PSG has suffered only one defeat all season and currently holds a 10-point lead at the top of the table. However, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Clermont in their previous fixture, with Goncalo Ramos netting the equalizer five minutes from time after trailing for much of the match.

Lyon has been one of the in-form teams in recent weeks, remaining unbeaten in nine of their last ten Ligue 1 matches. They've secured eight wins in that run and are now vying for a European finish, sitting six points off the top six.

Pierre Sage's men faced a tough challenge from Brest in their last Ligue 1 outing but ultimately secured a 4-3 victory. Corentin Tolisso opened the scoring early in the contest, while second-half goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Tagliafico, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles sealed the win.

Lyon has also impressed on their recent travels, winning their last six away matches. However, their defense often raises concerns, having kept just one clean sheet in that run.
