Two of the biggest names of French football clash on Sunday night at the Groupama Stadium, as the champions look to maintain their current winning run.

Following two straight league wins at the start of the season, Lyon have now gone three league games without a win, drawing against Amiens last time out and Bordeaux, while also suffering a 1-0 defeat at Montpellier.

The recent poor run has seen OL drop to eighth place in the table. Their early season good form led to expectations that they could really mount a realistic title challenge this season. If they are to do so then they must get back on track against the champions.

There is one positive for Lyon of late, in their home form, as they have won seven of their last ten Ligue One matches on home soil while remaining unbeaten in the last five games.

PSG are now back at the top of the Ligue One table after winning their last three matches in the French top-flight since a shock 2-1 defeat against Rennes. Thomas Tuchel’s side so renowned for their attacking players, but their defenders have played a key role in recent victories as they have kept clean sheets in their last three Ligue One matches.

PSG have a poor recent away record in Ligue One, despite their dominance of the French top-flight in recent seasons. In fact, the team from the capital has lost five of their last seven away matches in the league.

TEAM NEWS

Lyon have no reported injury issues. PSG are likely to still be missing some big players through injury for this clash, with Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler and Timo Kehrer looking set to miss out.

Match Prediction

Lyon are strong on home soil and PSG have not been great travellers in Ligue One of late. I can see this game ending all-square, though.
