PSG vs LYN Dream11 : Euphoria around Lyon dies with the side faltering after their riveting start to the league
A 3-0 win over Monaco followed up by a 6-0 triumph over Angers saw Lyon sit at the top of Ligue 1 league standings at the end of gameweek 1, but unfortunately for the side, that is as long as they could manage to sizzle. The side have immensely fizzled ever since then, going on downward spiral in their next three matches to find themselves slumped in 9th position.
Their defence has blown apart, being ripped to pieces and lambasted by their opponents with the side managing to scramble together just two points from nine, a misdemeanour which doesn’t bode well for them ahead of today’s imminent clash. Their previous encounter was a 2-2 draw to Amiens, a result the side will be looking to improve on when they face off against PSG for gameweek 6.
Elsewhere, despite being riddled and thwarted with injuries to key performers, PSG come into today’s match having defeated Real Madrid 3-0 in the Champions League. It was a rousing pefromance by them, one which saw them toy around Real Madrid to make a mockery out of them with the side failing to muster even one shot at target in the encounter.
Currently sitting on top of the points tally in Ligue 1 with three successive wins, the most recent being a 1-0 triumph over Strasbourg the last time around, PSG will be looking to build on their opponent’s wavering and waning defence. This match is set to immerse us in an engaging and engrossing run feat, a match which promises to see both sides go with hammers to unleash a carnage on the opponent’s goal.
PSG vs LYN Match Prediction
Despite Lyon being in such sorry form and PSG defeating Real Madrid recently, this match will be no means be a lopsided contest. Lyon are more than adept at scoring goals aplenty, a narrative which could easily rattle PSG.
This will be an attacking extradonaire match, one where the goals will flow freely with PSG managing to outscore their opponent to win today.

PSG vs LYN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
PSG’s newly purchased goal-keeper from Real Madrid, Keylor Navas is our man between the stick for this one. The way he was treated by Zidane at Real Madrid was shambolic with Navas clearly being his side’s best goalkeeper before he left and it was only befitting for him to partake in his side’s demolition of Real Madrid earlier this week.
He’ll face a good amount of shots in this match and given the way he can set himself up to pull off saves, he’s our pick for today’s match.
PSG vs LYN Dream11 Defenders
Despite us set to be devoid of a cleansheet today with their being a dearth of aware defenders in either side and the identity of the attacking players both come bestowed with, we have still gone in with the 4 defenders. The two apiece come in from either side only due to their role in the side’s attacking sorties as well with both sides allowing their defensive players to express themselves freely.
This sees us bring in Thomas Meunier and Presnel Kimpembe from PSG while from Lyon we are choosing Kenny Tete and Leo Dubois.
PSG vs LYN Dream11 Midfielders
Our entire midfield is composed of players from Lyon with us deciding to go in with Lucas Tousart, Martin Terrier and Houssem Aouar. The three players will be integral to their side’s chances of pulling of a win today, seeing us opt for players who’ll play roles in both the attacking and defensive components of their side today.
PSG vs LYN Dream11 Strikers
Although there is no confirmation on if Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani will be fit before the match, we have decided to stick them into our side. The two are players who can easily score given how bare Lyon’s defence is and we don’t want to miss out on them if they don’t start.
In the eventuality that they don’t play, we’ll be opting for different picks from the side with the team being released an hour before the match. Elsewhere from Lyon we are choosing rightwinger Bertrand Traore for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Terrier is our captain for today’s match while we are making Mbappe our vice-captain.
