Shared on the second position
Olympique Lyon and Paris Saint Germain are shared in second place. Lyon trainer Rudi Garcia knows what the French superpower is capable of. “PSG is above everyone if they play at 100%. They played the biggest matches and qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League ”, coach Garcia estimates the opponent from Paris.
On Sunday, it will be a match between the numbers two and three of the Ligue 1. Paris Saint Germain is second with sixty points, but Olympique Lyon has also played sixty points together. The teams are, therefore, equal. OSC Lille, which Ajax defeated in the sixteenth finals of the UEFA Europa League, is still number one in the French league Ligue 1 with 63 points.
Head 2 Head
The last time PSG visited Olympique Lyon was on March 3, 2020, when the Coupe de France’s semi-final was played. Paris St. Germain won 1-5 against the team from Lyon. A year earlier, Lyon won in-house against the team from Paris. This was then a league match that Lyon won 2-1. Memphis Depay was in the starting line-up at the time but did not score himself.
Current form Olympique Lyon
Olympique Lyon did not win last weekend on a visit to Reims, the thirteenth in the French league. A draw was dragged from the fire 1-1 by the team of trainer Garcia. A week earlier, the team managed to beat the number eight Rennes with Depay at home: 1-0. At the end of February, Lyon’s team also failed to win against Olympique Marseille: 1-1.
Current form Paris St. Germain
Paris Saint Germain started the week in the wrong way. Last Sunday, the team of trainer Pochettino lost in-house to relegation candidate Nantes with 1-2. Last Thursday, FC Barcelona was knocked out of the Champions League by the team from Paris. PSG did not win against Barça in-house: 1-1, but the first leg 1-4 was enough for the French team to advance to the quarter-finals.
Olympique Lyon coach Garcia has a luxury problem. At the time of writing, no injury reports are known to the number three of the Ligue 1.
With Juan Bernat (torn cruciate ligament) and Alessandro Florenzi (adductor complaints), the PSG trainer has two players less at his disposal. Neymar has almost recovered from his adductor injury, but whether the Brazilian will take action on Sunday is still the question.
