Reason For PSG vs Lyon Predictions

  • PSG have won 4 of their last 6 matches against Lyon.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two clubs.
  • PSG have won their last 7 matches in all competitions.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been produced in 3 of PSG’s and 5 of Lyon’s last 6 matches.

PSG are in the midst of a 7-game winning streak

PSG won 2-1 away at Nantes in midweek while Lyon were held to a goalless draw at home to Amiens, meaning the gap between the two teams increased to a staggering 25pts. PSG beat Lyon 1-0 in the pairs’ reverse league fixture in September and have won four of the pairs’ last six meetings, with over 2.5 goals being scored in four of those encounters.

Three of PSG’s last five and five of Lyon’s last six matches have produced over 2.5 goals and the hosts have won all of their last seven matches, while Lyon have failed to win either of their last two league games. The hosts have won nine of their eleven home games in Ligue 1 while Lyon have already been beaten four times on the road.

PSG average 2.55 points per home game while Lyon average 1.50 points per away game, so you can see why we are expecting a victory for the hosts this weekend. PSG score an average of 2.91 goals per home game and concede 0.55 goals while Lyon score an average of 1.75 goals per away game, which is why we have backed a 3-1 win for PSG.

Lyon have scored their fair share of goals on the road

The hosts have an 82% win ratio at home where 64% of their matches have produced over 2.5 goals and only 18% have seen both teams score, while 75% of Lyon’s away games have also featured at least 3-goals. PSG have only conceded 6-goals at home this season, suggesting that chances will be limited for the visitors, but Lyon have netted 21 goals on the road which is why we have backed them to score find the back of the net this weekend.

PSG have only failed to score in 9% of their home games but Lyon have only failed to score in 17% of their away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a final scoreline that features goals for both clubs. Exactly 4-goals have been scored in 27% of PSG’s home games as well as in 25% of Lyon’s away trips, with a majority of PSG’s wins this season (14) being obtained with a margin of 2 goals.

We’re confident that PSG will win and over 2.5 goals will be scored in the process and we have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1. PSG are in top form and have been scoring goals for fun of late and while Lyon haven’t been playing toom badly, it’s unlikely that the visitors will leave Paris with anything to show for their efforts.
