The biggest game in Ligue 1 this weekend will see PSG travel to Lyon. PSG are the defending Champions and .they face off against a young Lyon side who are currently leading Ligue 1. Lacazette is the top scorer in the league but he is currently struggling with a thigh injury and is likely to miss this game against PSG. Gourcuff and Fekir will be the main attacking threat for Lyon if Lacazette misses out although I hope that doesnt happen. Lyon have been a revelation this season and it has been a remarkable season for them and if they can finish this season out with a Championship it would be one of the biggest shocks in Europe this season.
PSG have come back strong from the winter break and have won five in a row but they are not impressing offensively. Ibrahimovich and Cavani have struggled to get their partnership going and Lavezzi is chipping in as well but PSG as a whole just have not been scoring goals. Defensively PSG are very good one of the best across Europe and have only conceded three goals in their last six games. PSG could go top of the table if they can beat Lyon tomorrow but this is going to be a tough game for them especially with their offensive struggles.
I'm taking the draw here. I like Lyon as a whole, the players, the manager and the attitude has been a breath of fresh air for the league. I do think that PSG's strength in depth could be vital in the run in but I think Lyon at home here will not be beate.
