LIVE – OL-PSG: a high-flying duel before the truce

Let’s go to Groupama Stadium! (0-0)

It was the Lyonnais, in white, who kicked off this big Ligue 1 shock!

Kick-off is imminent!

The actors enter the lawn of a Groupama Stadium for great evenings, accompanied by the referee of the match, François Letexier.

The absent Parisian supporters

On borrowed time after using pyrotechnic devices against Nantes, the Parisian supporters were finally sanctioned by the LFP and banned from traveling to Groupama Stadium this Sunday evening by a prefectural decree.

PSG deletes its controversial tweet after the minister’s pressure

A few days after the sand yachting controversy, PSG had again been talked about since the capital club posted a video – sponsored by Qatar Airways – showing behind the scenes of the trip to Lyon, which the Parisians joined by plane. The Minister Delegate for Transport, Clément Beaune, had not failed to react. And faced with the rising controversy, the Parisian club immediately deleted his post.

The magical Parisian trio lined up, first for Dembélé

Paris, in the absence of Presnel Kimpembe and Renato Sanches (thigh injury), retains its 3-4-3. Achraf Hakimi returns to his position as right piston, the central defense is made up of Danilo Pareira, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos. Fabian Ruiz holds in the middle, to breathe Vitinha. Keylor Navas makes his return to the bench.

On the Lyon side, in addition to Jérôme Boateng and Julian Pollersbeck, Houssem Aouar is missing. Moussa Dembélé is in attack for the first time this season, alongside Alexandre Lacazette. OL are playing in a rather ambitious system, going from their usual 4-3-3 to an attacking 4-4-2 with the duo Tetê-Toko Ekambi on the wings.

Paris wants to regain its throne

A little less bloody lately, with a sluggish victory against Brest on Saturday (1-0) and a scare against Maccabi Haifa in C1 on Wednesday (3-1), Paris will try to win a seventh victory to regain its place as leader stolen by OM a little earlier. Opposite, the Lyonnais are fifth and at a standstill in the Championship. OL have just had two worrying losses in Lorient (3-1) and Monaco (2-1), after five games without defeat to start the season.

High-flying duel

A still undefeated PSG, better attack and better defense, carried by a Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio on a small cloud, challenges Lyonnais accustomed to bothering them on the domestic scene in recent years. The clubs will then take a break for two weeks due to the international break.

The compositions of OL-PSG, with Fabian Ruiz starting on the Parisian side for the first time

OL: Lopes – Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico – Tolisso, Caqueret – Tete, Lacazette, Dembélé, Toko Ekambi.

PSG: Donnarumma – Ramos, Marquinhos, Danilo – Hakimi, Verratti, Ruiz, Nuno Mendes – Messi, Mbappe, Neymar.

The Minister of Transport tackles the PSG, which travels to Lyon by plane and promotes it

Clément Beaune, Minister Delegate for Transport, tackled PSG on Twitter. The capital club has published a video of the trip of the players, who joined Lyon by plane with their partner Qatar Airways. “To err is human, to persevere…”, he wrote on Twitter.

The probable composition of OL, with a change of system

After two consecutive defeats against Lorient and Monaco, Peter Bosz should change his system this Sunday by opting for a 4-2-3-1 with the first tenure of Moussa Dembélé this season. Number 9 from Lyon will be associated in tip and Alexandre Lacazette would be in support. The four-man defense must be renewed with a Thiago Mendes-Lukeba hinge.

The probable line-up of OL

Lopes – Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico – Caqueret, Tolisso – Tete, Lacazette (cap), Toko Ekambi – Dembele.

The probable line-up of PSG

For the match against OL, Christophe Galtier should have no surprises at Groupama Stadium. Compared to the team that won against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League, Achraf Hakimi should return to the Parisian 3-4-3.

Donnarumma – Danilo / Marquinhos / Ramos – Mendes / Vitinha / Verratti / Hakimi – Messi / Mbappe / Neymar
