20:00, Mar 21 2021
Lyon vs Paris Saint Germain prediction for Sunday’s round 30 clash of the French Ligue 1 at parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon. A top-of-the-table clash for 3rd placed Lyon and 2nd placed Paris Saint Germain. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Lyon will be looking for a crucial win

If Lyon want to be considered as a serious challenger for this season’s Ligue 1 title, they have to win this match. Lyon have been unstable in their form in recent matches winning and drawing every other game in the past four matches. 

Coach Rudi Garcia’s team have no difficulty in scoring in their games as they have done in their last nine matches. With Depay, Ekambe, and Kadewere all on double digits in goal-scoring, coach Garcia is enjoying a great line-up of attackers.

Lyon had a very good game against Reims with 68% possession of the ball and 684 passes between their players. They created many chances with 17 attempts at the goal of which six were on target. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Paris Saint Germain to bounce back from their last defeat

After a surprise defeat in the last round at the hands of Nantes, PSG lost very important three points that could’ve taken them to the top of the table. That was their seventh defeat of the season the most defeats they suffered in a season in Ligue 1 since 2011.

That was their second defeat in five games and both of them were at home. PSG are having trouble against teams that play compact and deep defense which neutralizes the pace of their attackers like Mbappe, Keane, and Di Maria.

PSG enjoyed 74% possession of the ball and had 719 passes but still lost to Nantes in their last match. They couldn’t convert their five shots at goal to more than one goal.

Key stats

  • Lyon have scored in their last nine matches
  • Lyon have scored in their last four home matches
  • PSG have won their last three away matches
  • PSG have scored in their last six away matches

Lyon vs Paris Saint Germain Prediction

It is clear that PSG are not as dominant in the French league as in previous seasons and that is why this season’s title race is a very close one between three or four clubs. PSG had some very unexpected defeats recently especially after their elimination of Barcelona from the UCL on 5-1 aggregate.

Lyon also are quite unpredictable in their recent matches after their inability to have two consecutive wins in the league in their last five games.

It is risky to bet on the outright winner of this match thus we will bet on goals scored and we predict an under 3.5 total match goals.
