France – Ligue 1 | Paris St-Germain VS Lyon; Monday, 22 April at 03:00 GMT +8

Parisians are confident after a strong comeback against Barcelona, thanks to Ronald Araujo’s sending-off, to secure their first-ever “Big-Ears” trophy. With just seven more points from the remaining 18 available, they need just seven more to become Ligue 1 champions for the third consecutive season and the 10th time in the last 12 domestic campaigns.

Olympique Lyon has managed to overcome a disastrous start to the season and secure a spot in European football next season. Manager Pierre Sage has rescued the team from the relegation zone and set up a title clash with PSG in the Coupe de France. Les Gones currently sits in seventh place with 41 points.

PSG is eager to add the Ligue 1 title to their trophy cabinet, but head coach Luis Enrique may rest some players after a midweek contest. Les Gones, a confident team, are confident in their chances to disrupt PSG’s dominant force in French football. Despite their robust defensive setup, PSG has conceded goals in eight of their past eight fixtures at Parc des Princes, suggesting that Les Gones’ alternative defensive quartet will only facilitate Lyon’s goal-scoring opportunities. Les Gones have netted 3+ goals in all but one of their last five matches across all competitions, and they aim to disrupt PSG’s euphoric mood after their midweek European success.

PSG’s Luis Enrique may use a 4-3-3 formation with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Danilo Pereira, Nuno Mendes, Warren Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz, Ousmane Dembele, Kylian Mbappe, and Bradley Barcola.

Lyon manager Pierre Sage has no fitness concerns due to an injury-free squad. Lyon may play in a 4-3-3 formation, starting with Anthony Lopes, A. Maitland-Niles, Clinton Mata, Jake O’Brien, Henrique Silva, Maxence Caqueret, Nemanja Matic, Orel Mangala, Rayan Cherki, Alexandre Lacazette, and Said Benrahma.

Paris St-Germain

Goalkeeper: Keylor Navas
