In the 20th round of the French Ligue 1, Lyon will host PSG at the Parc Olympique Lyon stadium. The match will start on January 9 at 10:45 pm Moscow time. The hosts are in thirteenth place in the standings, the guests are in first. And although the teams share a whopping 22 points, the game should be interesting and intense.
Lyon are having an extremely unsuccessful season, settling in the second half of the standings after 19 rounds. The team has only 24 points, although it played one match less. The gap from the European competition zone is not very large, but for a serious fight at least for the Europa League, you need to start winning steadily. So far, Peter Bose’s charges have great difficulties with this.
Lyon have not won four rounds in a row, having drawn three times and losing once. In the last match played, the team at the home stadium could not beat one of the outsiders, Metz. The sides exchanged goals at the 56th and 58th minutes and finished the meeting with a score of 1-1. It is unlikely that such a result can please the fans of the once strongest team in France.
The team’s twitter congratulates midfielder Tino Cadevere on his birthday and wishes him the best in the African Cup.
PSG are as usual confidently performing in the domestic championship. The team is comfortably in first place, creating an impressive 13 points lead after 19 rounds. It is difficult to imagine a situation in which Mauricio Pochettino’s wards will miss another championship.
But the team is now worried about a completely different goal – the Champions League. Here is the star striker of the Parisians Kilian Mbappé, despite all the rumors about leaving for Real, speaks of his desire to win the Champions League with PSG:
We must be ready. The time has come. This is the most important part of the season. Of course, we want to take a step forward. It has been two years since we reached the final, semi-final. But now we want to win.
The team is actively preparing for the confrontation with Lyon.
