Ligue 1 Matchday 14 brings us a derby match at ParcOlympique Lyonnais, where Lyon host the Parisians in an attempt to close the gap to the top three.
After a couple of disappointing results, Paris Saint-Germain have reinstated their fine form and won eight out of their nine matches across competitions. With a thrilling season at the top of the table, they are currently 3rd with the same number of points as Monaco and lagging just three points behind table-topping Nice. Unai Emery’s team now travel to Lyon where they need the points to keep up, and we’ll back them to an away win at 19/20 with Bet365
The traditionally difficult away day for PSG will be as tight as ever, as Les Gones are also in a great form and looking to catch up with the top three. The Parisians have won just a total of four matches at Parc Olympique Lyonnais and they will now want to win for the first time since 2014. However, The Saints have the quality and the high spirits needed to snatch the spoils and possibly close the gap to Nice too.
Bruno Genesio has indeed built a solid and confident squad and they won four out of six home matches this season. The team did concede a high total of eight goals in six matches at home this season but, interestingly, they last failed to score a goal there in 2015. We thus expect a thrilling match with attacking football and goals to match the quality of the matchup. Over 2.5 goals FT bet can be backed at 3/4 with WilliamHill
, while for us a somewhat more interesting and attractive bet is Both teams to score at 8/13 with Ladbrokes
. Many have already rated this an over-priced banker bet and we do expect the match to deliver.
Both sides have in-form attacking lines led by team heroes who top the Ligue 1 top goalscorers list. Edinson Cavani has netted 11 league goals this season, five of which came in the last six matches, and you can back him to score anytime at 10/11 with WilliamHill
On the other hand, Alexandre Lacazette has been amazing for Lyon with 10 goals so far and he’s played a key role in their recent rise. Lacazette netted four in the last four league matches, also adding a mid-week winner at Dinamo Zagreb, and you can back him to continue the hot streak at 6/5 with the same bookie.
