The big derby this weekend will be played in Lyon where the hosts will meet one of the richest clubs in the world, PSG. The Parisiens are still undefeated this season while Lyon had lost the last two games. However, true motivation will come against the current champions.

PSG to Win

Even though they play the Champions League in the midweek, PSG has a big, and strong enough squad to provide options for coach Christophe Galtier weekly. The owners of the club won't accept any excuses while playing on multiple fronts chasing titles. The last time these teams met in Lyon, in January the score was 1-1, however this season PSG looks like an improved team with Lionel Messi finally playing the way he used to in Barcelona. The positive thing about Lyon is their home form this season, they are perfect with four wins out of four games. However, with PSG firing on all cylinders, they are the favorites to come out as winners.

How to stop PSG's scoring machine?

The main question for Lyon will be how they react defensively. Even though they conceded only three goals at home this season, they were scored upon in their last 5 matches. It's hard to envision PSG not scoring in Lyon, and the manager of the home team Peter Bosz will need to figure out how to defend against one of the best-attacking lines in football. Lyon is not involved in European competitions this season which will give them additional rest time between league matches, as well as a chance to fight for Champions League places in next year's tournament.

Lyon predicted lineup: Lopes, Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico, Tolisso, Lepenant, Caqueret, Tete, Lcazette, Ekambi.

PSG coach Christophe Galtier has enough options to further test his team's resolve after a midweek match, and a win against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League. There are some injury concerns for the visitors, but with the as big squad, as PSG has, Galtier should find players who will play against a tough opponent.

PSG predicted lineup: Donnarumma, Pereira, Marquinhos, Ramos, Hakimi, Vitinha, Verratti, Mendes, Messi, Mbappe, Neymar Jr.

Team News

Lyon: Julian Pollserbeck and Jerome Boateng are injured.

PSG: Keylor Navas, Presnel Kimpembe, and Renato Sanches are unavailable through injury.
