Lyon Betting Preview

Lyon is still on the hunt for their first win of the season, and this Sunday they’ve got a tough task: hosting PSG, the Ligue 1 champs. Though PSG hasn’t exactly been lighting the league on fire, they still look more solid than their struggling hosts.

Lyon’s last outing was a goalless draw against Nice, a game in which they were mostly on the back foot. With just one shot on target, they were lucky to walk away with a point. It’s been a rough start for Laurent Blanc’s squad, who haven’t snagged a win in their first three games and sit near the bottom of the table. They were thrashed 4-1 by Montpellier in their last home game, so they’ll be eager to turn things around.

PSG, meanwhile, hasn’t had the smoothest start either but they did manage to grab their first win last time around, beating Lens 3-1. Marco Asensio and a Kylian Mbappe double did the job. They’re sitting in eighth place, not exactly where you’d expect the champs to be, but given the summer shake-up—farewell Neymar and Messi, hello Luis Enrique—it’s not too shocking they’re taking time to gel. Still, they’re unbeaten and will be looking to build momentum.

Betting Odds and Insights

When it comes to the bookies, PSG is the heavy favorite with odds of 8/15 from bet365. Lyon, despite playing at home, is a longshot at 19/4.

Head-to-Head Stats

PSG holds the edge historically, with 33 wins to Lyon’s 24, plus 16 draws out of 73 total matchups. Interestingly, both teams won on the road last season; PSG grabbed a 1-0 win at Lyon’s Groupama Stadium, and Lyon returned the favor with a 1-0 win in Paris.

Players to Keep an Eye On

Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette is out, serving a suspension, so it’s likely up to Tinotenda Kadawere to fill the striking role. He’s going at 17/4 to score.

As for PSG, keeping Kylian Mbappe around appears to be paying off; he’s already bagged three goals in two games. You can get odds of 3/4 from 888Sport for him to keep that scoring streak alive.
