Olympique Lyon Vs PSG Betting Tips
Everyone is curious to see if this game will end up being a replay of the most recent match between these two clubs, which occurred on January 9, 2022. Because the previous match ended in a stalemate, fans are eager for a rematch this time.
However, because Paris Saint-Germain has dominated the last three games, pressure from supporters and the manager is much greater on OL. In the last three meetings between the two teams, Paris Saint-Germain has scored seven goals while Olympique Lyon has only managed four.
Winds in Lyon are expected to be barely five km on this date. Thus, they shouldn’t affect the game. On the day of the game, temperatures are not likely to climb significantly, with a daily maximum of just 18°C, so the players shouldn’t get tires too soon.
Additionally, there won’t be much rain; the likelihood of it falling is only about 10%.
Since Olympique Lyon’s league performance hasn’t been that strong (they’re currently in fifth place), Paris Saint-Germain should find it relatively simple to hold on to their lead.
Prediction: Olympique Lyon 1 – 2 Paris Saint-Germain

Olympique Lyon vs PSG Both Teams To Score
Olympique Lyon vs PSG Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Olympique Lyon has had a terrible season thus far, collecting just 24 points (with a -1 point deduction); nonetheless, this is equal to their output at this point in 2013/14, when they ultimately finished 5th, suggesting that there is still hope for the seven-time French champions.
In this matchup, Lyon will face PSG, the league’s undisputed leader and the opponent that all teams in this division fear. PSG has nearly twice as many points as Lyon. However, no visiting team has managed to prevent Lyon from scoring this season, and just one emerged victorious.
PSG should have the talismanic forward duo of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe ready for this match, despite being plagued by several absences due to the AFCON, injuries, and illness.
Since losing their first league game in October 2021, PSG has only lost to English Champions Manchester City and is simply in a league of their own in France (W10, D5). Additionally, they are unbeaten in 18 of their 19 league games this season as pregame favorites, which is naturally all of them.
Overall, I believe the lack of PSG players and Lyon’s dominant home record will allow the hosts to score one or two goals here, but that PSG will ultimately prevail in a thrilling match.
