PSG vs Lyon: Frech Ligue 1 match between PSG and Lyon is taking place on Monday, January 10 at 01:30 AM Nepali time.
Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain, two French football titans facing dramatically different fates in the 2021-22 season, square off at the Groupama Stadium on Sunday.
The visitors are presently 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, while Peter Bosz’s men are 13th after a difficult start to the season. PSG vs Lyon
Lyon is suffering the price for failing to fully replace Memphis Depay over the summer, with Bosz’s club currently closer to the relegation zone than the top three after a poor start to 2021-22.
Les Gones had it nearly all their own way in the Europa League as they cruised through the competition, but establishing their dominance in Ligue 1 has been difficult, and relegation-threatened Metz held relegation-threatened Lyon to a 1-1 draw before the break as Castello Lukeba’s effort was canceled out by Boubacar Traore.
Lyon finished 2021 with four consecutive draws in all competitions, including each of their last three in the French first division, and Bosz’s team will enter 2022 in the bottom half of the rankings, but they are just five points below Monaco in sixth place.
However, it is evident that Lyon will need to make a fast turnaround in order to compete for European titles and save Bosz’s job, despite the fact that president Jean-Michel Aulas has stated that the head coach will remain in charge for at least another month or two.
One win in their last six Ligue 1 games is genuinely dismal for a team of Lyon’s status, but they have scored in all of their home games this season and have only lost once, so PSG‘s task on Sunday will not be easy.
A large-scale coronavirus outbreak was not on Mauricio Pochettino’s agenda at the start of 2022, but a rotated PSG squad easily defeated Vannes OC in the Coupe de France on Monday, winning 4-0.
Having now confirmed that he will not be on his way to Real Madrid in January, Kylian Mbappe stole the show with an 18-minute hat-trick in the second half after Presnel Kimpembe had put Les Parisiens 1-0 to the good, but attention now turns to wrestle their rightful Ligue 1 crown back off Lille.
PSG’s Christmas joy may have been dimmed by three draws in four games in December, but Pochettino’s men are now unbeaten in ten league games and sit comfortably 13 points ahead of Nice and Marseille at the top.
Despite their domination at the Parc des Princes, Les Parisiens have struggled to stamp their influence on enemy ground, winning just two of their previous six Ligue 1 away games, but a record of 21 points on the road remains the best in the division heading into Sunday’s clash.
PSG also needed a 93rd-minute Mauro Icardi winner to beat Lyon 2-1 at home in September, but the capital club is on a three-game winning streak on Lyon’s turf in all tournaments, scoring 10 goals in that span.
