In the last 15 years, there are no more popular and successful clubs than PSG and Lyon in the French Championship. Olympic won 7 titles in a row in the early 21st, while Parisians won 7 titles in the last 8 years.
Sunday’s match rivals two teams that have different goals in the Championship. Lyon’s problem is their volatile form, as all they can hope for is second place in the league. Even the silver medals in the championship are a dream for Olympic, because of the exceptional season that makes Marseille this year.
At the beginning of the campaign, Lyon parted with its coach, Silvinho, after the club decided he was not the right person at the moment.
Olympic’s squad gets ready for Sunday’s game with hopes of a better performance than the last matches in which they failed to achieve enough points. Lyon sits on the 6th place, 7 behind the top 4 French teams and 13 points behind Marseille.
Olympic’s players will try to forget this season, as they achieved some impressive victories and followed by rather mediocre matches. They are currently in an unpleasant series of 2 games without success.
PSG, on the other hand, is in brilliant form, scoring more than 2-3 goals per game. The title is no longer a target for Parisians, dreaming about wins in the other French club tournaments and why not a Champions League trophy. PSG are 12 points ahead of Marseille and can afford to experiment in some of the remaining games until the end of the season. At their stadium, Parisians have 9 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss.
My prediction is for minimal home success, with the most likely result to be 2:1 or 1:0. The reason for this is in the importance of the upcoming Champions League duels for PSG, which are currently a top priority for Parisians.
