PSG – Olympique Lyonnais
PSG hosts Olympique Lyonnais in the big derby of the 6th round of the French Ligue 1.
Can anyone stop PSG this seasonn? This is the question which everyone is asking right now. Yes – Monaco did it last season, but now PSG strenghtened their squad with world class players like Dani Alves, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. This version of PSG looks scary and the results are proving it.
So far PSG won all of their five games in Ligue 1, doing with a goal difference of 19:3. In the Champions League Unai Emery’s side started its campaign with a 5-0 win over Celtic. The numbers are telling us that this team is very strong and there’s a big chance to see PSG winning the title without facing any trouble.
Olympique Lyonnais are possibly one of the teams who can give PSG some trouble. They are currently 5th in the standings with 11 points, but with a game less than Monaco, Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux.
Lyonnais started the season with three wins and two draws and a goal difference of 11:5. They don’t have the stars which PSG have, but they have a talented and ambitious young squad, so don’t be too quick to write them off.
If we agree that PSG are the big favourite for the gold medals, Olympique Lyonnais’ main goal remains finishing in the Top 3 and qualifying for the Champions League. Can they do it?
Both teams had matches in Europe during the week.
How we just pointed out, PSG started their campaign in the Champions League with a 5-0 win over Celtic in Glasgow. It was a truly magnificent performance by the French club.
Meanwhile Lyonnais made a 1-1 draw with Apollon Limassol in the Europa League, which was kind of dissapointing result for the French team.
