Description: PSG Vs LYN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: PSK look to add their third domestic trophy this season before moving onto the Champions League’s pastures.
After winning the Ligue 1 once again as the French football association truncated the season and handed over the trophy to PSG on virtue of them being in first place in the league, PSG went onto win their second trophy last week. The club defeated St. Etienne 1-0 in the final of the Coupe de France, a win which marked the return of football in France for the first time since March.
However, that win for PSG came at too costly a prize for PSG with their fulcrum, Kylian Mbappe being critically injured in the summit clash. A horrid tackle on him left the player in anguish with the club’s worst fears being brought into fruition after it was announced that Mbappe would miss upto a month in lieu of the latest development.
The move was not only a massive setback for the club for today’s impending faceoff against Lyon but also for the team’s upcoming Champions League travails against Atalanta. Its left a massive side in the team’s attacking docket, a void the side will look to work its way around and compensate for when they go clashing heads in the Coupe de la Ligue final today.
PSG Vs LYN Dream11 Probable Winner
While PSG are touted to go onto win their third domestic title this season, we just can’t write off Lyon. The side has been known for making things tricky for the staunchest of oppositions and with the team getting ready to play Juventus in the Champions League, a result in their favour today could be a massive shot in the arm for the side.
They’ll serve a stiff challenge to PSG but ultimately fail to contain France’s most electric attack across the course of the 90 minutes.

Lyon might have ended up in 7th place in Ligue 1 but the only reason the club managed to not further plummet was due to goal-keeper Anthony Lopes. His meticulous brand of goal-keeping saw teams flounder infront of his gallantry with the shot stopper helping Lyon emerge as one of the sternest backlines in the competition.
After a cleansheet in their previous final, it was only rightful of us to opt for a triad from PSG for the day’s encounter. Its not only down to the team’s acumen in defence but more so the manner in which they have controlled encounters with the team revelling in a magnitude of the possession to leave their opponents with frugal opportunities to score on.
And with Lyon not having had the most sublime of times infront of the league way back in March, the trivalent of Juan Bernat, Presnel Kimpembe and Colin Dagba from the home team could easily end up with a cleansheet in its favour today.
Although this won’t be the easiest of encounters for PSG in the scoring docket with the side coming across a pluck, gusty and guile filled defence, Angel with the 8 goals and 14 assists cane easily end up with a contribution today. We have CDM Idrissa Gueye join up from the club, a player who has instantly made a name for himself at the club with his expertise helping him make a name for himself inside his first season only.
With the four goals and three assists, the panache of Maxwell Cornet is capable of asking any side to talk a walk to make him a must have player from Lyon. Bruno Guimaraes will be accompanying him with the CDM’s tenacious brand of defending set to take centrestage in the side’s astute defensive setup today.
With Mbappe out for PSG today, the onus grows immensely on Neymar to score for PSG and take charge of their attacking docket. He’s pulled off the 13 goals and 5 assists for the club to make him a must have pick from the side alongside Marco Icardi who has come up with the 12 goals and 2 assists for the side.
Lyon will see top scorer with 16 goals and 2 assists, Moussa Dembele bring down the curtains on our Dream 11 framework for the imminent tie.
