Probably the biggest fixture to take part in France is when PSG take on Lyon. PSG have dominated the 2010s in Ligue 1 and Lyon dominated the 2000s. Both clubs are going for the league title this season so this promises to be quite a match.

PSG smashed Istanbul 5-1 here in midweek in the Champions League to qualify for the knock out stages ahead of quality such as Manchester United and with the European competition on hold now until February PSG can really focus on defending their league title.

Unlike other seasons PSG has a lot of competition and they are only 2 points clear so they can’t afford to drop points. However that is what they did in their last home game as they were held to a surprise 2-2 draw against Bordeaux.

However it was back to winning ways last weekend as PSG beat Montpellier away from home 3-1.

Lyon are in 3rd place with 26 points and just two points behind, if they win they go past PSG. Lyon are in superb form and have won their last 4 games in a row. Indeed they have gone three months without defeat and have only lost once from 13 games.

Away form is just the same for Lyon and they have won their last 2 games in a row with no defeats in their last five.

PSG have the better team of course and on paper should have little trouble. But they will have a hard game on their hands. One of the reasons is that Lyon have not worked this hard over the past few weeks to blow the game in Paris.

PREDICTION: Total goals scored will be Over 1.5
