Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the season when they welcome Lyon to the Parc des Princes for Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash.
Having started the season with seven wins from seven in all competitions, Les Parisiens are overwhelming 2/13 (1.15) favourites with dabblebet to extend that 100 per cent record with another victory here.
However, Bruno Genesio’s team are also yet to taste defeat in six competitive matches so far, and are on offer at 14/1 (15.00) to pull off a shock win against their star-studded opponents.
The guests’ 1-1 Europa League draw at Apollon on Thursday was their third in four fixtures, and there are odds of 8/1 (9.00) available on them earning a share of the spoils yet again in this one.
While many have expressed concern over the disproportionate spending power of the Qatari-backed capital club, there are few more outspoken critics than Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.
Having seen Unai Emery’s team break the world transfer record on Neymar and then go on to lure Monaco star Kylian Mbappe to the Parc des Princes, the 68-year-old has suggested Ligue 1 could be all but over as a competition.
This argument is difficult to disagree with for anyone who has witnessed Neymar and Mbappe in action alongside Edinson Cavani, with that triumvirate scoring 10 goals in two matches so far.
With five wins and 19 goals to their name after the opening five league fixtures, it is certainly hard to see any team standing in the way of PSG and the title this campaign.
Nevertheless, having scored over two goals a game themselves in the league, Les Gones will at least fancy their chances of upsetting a defence they have scored past in 10 of the last 12 encounters.
Boasting over two goals a game so far, odds of 21/20 (2.05) therefore offer solid value on Lyon getting on the scoresheet before succumbing to defeat on Sunday.
