High flying PSG host Lyon in Ligue 1 on Sunday night, kicking off at 9:00pm. PSG are top of the league having won their opening 8 matches in striking fashion, whereas Lyon already find themselves 10 points behind after an inconsistent start to the season.

Home Team: PSG

PSG are looking to break all types of records this season, having already amassed 24 points from their opening 8 games and scoring 26 goals in the process. At the moment, they have scored 3.25 goals per game, and if they continue that goal scoring form, they are projected to score 123 goals throughout this season, which is unthinkable. Neymar is the top goal scorer in the league with 7 goals, with Edison Cavani scoring 5, and teenage superstar Kylian Mbappe scoring four. Those front three are only accountable for 60% of their goals, meaning they are scoring for fun from all positions and all players. PSG have won all their games this season with a winning margin of at least two goals. Wil they continue that against arguably their toughest fixture of the season so far?

Away Team: Lyon

Lyon have been consistently inconsistent in the opening couple of months of the season. They have managed results like winning 4-2 at home to Marseille, winning 2-1 at Manchester City in the Champions League, but also have lost at home to Nice, away to Stade Reims and even last week in a disappointing home 1-1 draw to Nantes. Lyon finished in 3rd place last season, finishing 15 points off PSG and currently placed themselves in 5th, already 10 points behind their opponents this weekend. With the attacking quality they have at their disposal, such as Fekir, Depay and Dembele, they’ll hope to cause PSG’s defence some problems on Sunday, and hope to give a reminder to PSG that the league isn’t wrapped up just yet.

Head to Head

PSG have a fairly dominant record in this fixture in recent seasons, but Lyon have been able to get a key result here or there over the years. In fact, the last two times these two teams met in January this year, Lyon were 2-1 victors but were the home team on that occasion. In the last 13 meetings, Lyon have won on just two occasions, with PSG winning 9, and the other two being draws. At Parc des Princes, PSG have won the last 6 times that Lyon have come to town, and the last time Lyon came away with a point was back in 2014, and the last time they managed to get all three points was back in 2007.

Predictions and Betting Tips

PSG are at 1/3 to get the victory, and Lyon are at 13/2 to cause an upset here. A draw is at 9/2. PSG have never won 8 matches to start their season, so to start with an impressive 9 victories would be even beyond their expectations. However, I just cannot see anything other than a home win here, but due to Lyon’s ability to perform in big games, I expect it to be a tight match. Therefore, my score prediction would be 3-2 at 14/1. To boost your winnings on the game, you can bet on Lyon to get the first goal, but then PSG to win from behind at 7/1. I would back Neymar to score at any time at 8/11, as the certainty but backing Di Maria at 15/8 will give you a bigger reward if you fancy taking a larger risk. For the visitors, Moussa Dembele is the go to man, and he is at 9/1 to score first or 9/4 to score at any time.
