PSG vs Lyon by Joshboy
This match is played in the French super cup. It will be played at a neutral venue at the Stade Saputo in Montréal.
Psg are coming into this after a great domestic season. They won the treble in France last season after winning the league by 8 points to their opponents in this match Lyon and they also won both French cups. They have had quite a good pre season after playing 5 matches. They won 4 of these and lost 1 on penalties to Chelsea after drawing the match 1-1. In their last friendly match they beat man united 2-0 with goals coming from Ibrahimovic and Matuidi. Psg have Thiago Motta out injured and will probably not play Lavezzi and Pastore after they were given extra rest by the club as they played in the Copa America. David Luiz and Edinson Cavani also played in this competition but came on for the second half against Man United so it is yet to be seen whether they start the match or if they will be left on the bench. Psg have brought in 2 players this summer, goalkeeper Kevin Trapp and midfielder Benjamin Stambouli so it will be interesting to see if they start the match.
Lyon have had quite a terrible pre season to put it bluntly. They had quite a good season last year though and were pushing Psg and were atop the table a few different times. In pre season they have had 5 games. They have lost 4 and won just 1 game though. In their last game they lost to Villareal 2-0 and that was after arsenal absolutely thumped them 6-0. It must be mentioned that they have only scored in 1 of those 5 games and that was in there 2-1 win over Milan. Lyon have a few big injuries for this match. They have Nabir Fekir suspended and Clément Grenier and Gueïda Fofana out injured.
Psg have the better team and will again win the French Ligue 1 this season in my opinion. Im not so sure though that Lyon will have as good a season as they did last year. Coming into this match Psg are in good form and have good confidence and Lyon are in poor form and their morale must be low after such poor performances. Both teams have a few players missing but Psg have the better depth and quality to overcome this and should pick up the French super cup in 90 minutes.
