Very busy football weeks were outstanding for “Lyon”. Following Turin’s Juventus and Saint-Etienne, PSG will come to Grupama, and next Sunday the weavers themselves will go to Lille: for the Olympic, still fighting for four trophies, a crucial period has begun, following the results whom Rudi Garcia’s team can reverse the poorly started season.
At the end of this insanely intense series of matches, Lyon must find out if he can win the national trophy and / or climb the podium of League 1 to achieve his original goals. To add a new entry to the list of achievements for the first time since 2012, wards Rudy Garcia will have to defeat PSG at least once, on Wednesday in the French Cup semi-final or on April 4 in the League Cup final at the Stade de France.
And don’t sacrifice a trip to Lille within the framework of the 28th round of the championship – the “dogs”, taking fourth place in the standings, are six points ahead of the “weavers”. After winning the derby over “Saint-Etienne” (2: 0, Dembele’s double), “Lyon” returned to 5th place, so for them, really, not everything is lost.
Finally, the “lions” did not deny themselves the right to dream of the Champions League quarter finals thanks to a minimal victory over Juventus on February 26 (1: 0, Tuzar) in the first match. See also: “Lyon” – PSG: the forecast of journalists So Foot An amazing metamorphosis once again confirms the coaching theory of how beneficial is a series of successful matches. About “Lyon”, which until then produced, basically, a dull sight and terrible instability, they seriously started talking as a contender for trophies.
However, the changes did not occur from scratch, the good financial health of the club (unlike Marseilles, for example) allowed Olympic to recruit Carl Toko Ekambi in January, compensating for the absence of Depay and Rhine-Adelaide, as well as the young Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes, who enlivened the midfield line, the Achilles heel of the team.
These recruits have significantly changed the style of the game, “Lyon” and significantly increased efficiency. However, all these conclusions still need to be verified. The next matches will give the first answers, and the final verdict can only be pronounced at the end of April, when Olympic will play in Rennes (3rd), will receive Marseille (2nd), Monaco (7th) and Montpellier “(6th).
Possible starting lineup: Lopes, Rafael, Yanga-Mbiwa, Morel, Bedimo; Gonalons (c), Ferri, Darder; Ghezzal, Lacazette, Labidi
Paris Saint Germain
PSG, like Lyon, continues to fight in all tournaments from the beginning of the season. Everything went according to plan (more or less) until the time came for the Champions League playoffs. The 1/8 finals became a real curse of Paris, and this season the metropolitan club can again expect a big disappointment.
It is difficult to say whether the “treble” in the domestic arena will be sufficient compensation for a possible departure from Borussia, but Tuchel does not intend to voluntarily refuse it, although he himself no longer hides that all the team’s attention is concentrated on the return game with the “bumblebees” in which you need to play the minimum handicap (1: 2). Even a meeting with a principal rival at such a high stage of the cup tournament, the German mentor PSG considers as a stage in preparation for the reception of “Borussia”.
Not many teams in France are able to openly challenge Paris (“Marcel” in the first round, so he generally threw a towel before the starting whistle), and “Lyon”, in whatever state he is, tries to do it every time . Sometimes it’s successful, most often in vain, but in any case, the Parisians always need to meet with Olimpik with maximum concentration, which gave Tuchel an opportunity to compare the next game with the test that awaits his wards on Wednesday.
After the defeat in Dortmund, “Paris Saint-Germain” won two victories in the championship. With a margin of 1 goal there was a beat of “Bordeaux” (4: 3), and last weekend the Parisians crushed “Dijon” (4: 0). For the first time in its history, PSG scored at least 4 goals in four consecutive championship games. With “Amiens”, as you can remember, the team of Tuchel shared points (4: 4), and the start of the productive series was put on the victory over “Lyon” (4: 2). Before moving on to personnel issues, we note that in the previous rounds of the Cup, Lyon knocked out Bour-en-Brez (7: 0), Nantes (4: 3), and Nice (2: 1) ) and the house of Marseille (1: 0).
As for PSG, who lost last year’s penalty on the Rennes penalty, this team will have to play all matches until the likely finals on the road: 6-0 against Lina-Monlery, 1-0 in Lorient, 2-0 in Po and 6 : 1 in Dijon.
Possible starting lineup: Keylor Navas, Juan Bernat, Abdou Diallo, Tanguy Kouassi, Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos, Idrissa Gueye, Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi, Neymar Jr., Pablo Sarabia

Lyon vs PSG Prediction
“Lyon” really scored an excellent move, judging by the results, but I would treat this with great caution. It is generally recognized that Juventus was not its own in the match with the “weavers”, and worse than “Saint-Etienne” recently only “Toulouse” has been playing, an outright outsider of League 1. PSG has already beaten the “weavers” twice this season and could well do it again if he takes the task of getting into the Cup final with all seriousness.
