Lyon vs PSG: Time, TV channels, live stream, line-ups and betting odds of Ligue 1 2022/23
Table top PSG will take their unbeaten record en route to long-time rivals Olympique Lyon in the Ligue 1 table marquee game. Lyon go into play sixth, six points behind Les Parisiens.
PSG roll so far in 2022/23 under new coach Christophe Galtier and their attacking trident of Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar has never looked better. With the international break looming and the next game set for October 1, it may not be the time to rest them and potentially upset the team’s current streak of nine wins and one draw from their first 10 games in all competitions .
Lyon are desperate to get their season back on track after back-to-back defeats by Lorient (3-1) and AS Monaco (2-1). These results came as a surprise after Lyon won four of their first five games of the season.
Olympique Lyon is a team that plays big games at their Groupama stadium where they have won eight consecutive games in the league. They should appear for the occasion as the PSG coach expects strong Lyon pressing and intensity right from the start. This clash ended 1-1 when they last met on January 9, but Neymar and Messi didn’t get dressed for the match.
It’s a natural rivalry between these two of France’s most successful clubs, having won 15 of France’s last 21 Ligue 1 titles between them. Galtier was part of the coaching staff at Lyon who won their last Ligue 1 title under then-coach Alain Perrin in 2007/08, behind current Real Madrid star Karim Benzema’s goalscorer.

Lyon vs PSG best bet, prediction
Given Lyon’s strength at home in the league and the fact that the two sides drew 1-1 in their last meeting at the Groupama Stadium, it would be tempting to bet on a possible upset result in this game. But that was another Lyon team that had Lucas Paqueta (now with West Ham) and Bruno Guimaraes (with Newcastle). Also, Messi and Neymar didn’t play for PSG in that game.
The odds are predicting another PSG win in a high-scoring game. No reason to disagree here. This PSG team has a different feel for them and they seem to have been able to score at will. Galtier’s men were in other sticky situations in their first 10 games – they were 1-0 down at Israeli champions Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League midweek and still won 3-1 – and outside of the 1-1 draw against AS Monaco (they beat Monaco 18-4), they generally manage to prevail thanks to their attacking trio.
