PSG have splashed the cash in this transfer window and they have got definite results out of it. They have demolished every opponent they have faced in France or in Europe till now. PSG are sitting firmly right at the top of the table with 15 points with a perfect start to their season. Their combination of Mbappe Cavani and Neymar is very lethal and containing them is the most difficult task for the Lyon defenders, if they want somthing out of this match.

Olympique Lyonnais

Lyon has also been in fine form with 2 draws and 3 wins in the league as they are firmly placed at the 3rd position. Their last match was against Guingamp and Diaz and Fekir both scored for Lyon in a 2-1 victory.

Although their last match in Europa League was not great as they drew 1-1 in their visit to Apollon. All in all former Real Madrid man Mariano Diaz has been in fine form and it looks like Lyon may have a chance to prove themselves against the star-studded PSG lineup.
