Paris Saint-Germain v Lyon Betting Preview: Oppose a straightforward home win at Parc des Princes

Having shown distinct signs of improvement under new manager Bruno Genesio, Al Hain-Cole expects Les Gones to run Laurent Blanc's men close in Wednesday's Coupe de France clash
Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to keep their treble chances alive when they welcome Lyon to the Parc des Princes for Wednesday's Coupe de France quarter-final clash.

Currently 24 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and having booked their place in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, Les Parisiens are 20/49 (1.41) favourites with NetBet to stay on course for a second clean sweep in consecutive seasons by coming out on top here.

Bruno Genesio's men have not won on this ground since a 3-1 victory in this competition back in 2012, but are on offer at 27/4 (7.75) to cause a cup upset once again on this occasion.

The hosts have not so much as failed to win since a 0-0 draw with Angers 17 games ago, but you can get odds of 7/2 (4.50) on this one heading into extra-time after a deadlocked 90 minutes.

Genesio has admitted his side were 'unlucky' to be drawn away at a ground which they have already visited twice so far this campaign, coming away empty-handed on both occasions.

The first trip to the capital resulted in a humiliating 5-1 defeat that edged Hubert Fournier closer to the exit door, with the coach replaced soon after by his former assistant.

After overseeing a morale-boosting 7-0 cup win away to lower league Limoges in his first game at the helm, Genesio subesquently inspired a much-improved performance in a narrow 2-1 Coupe de la Ligue defeat against Laurent Blanc's men.

With Les Gones seemingly going from strength to strength under their inexperienced boss after two consecutive 3-0 wins, they should feel cautiously optimistic of running their hosts even closer on this occasion.

With this in mind, although it may seem like too much of a stretch to back Lyon, the fact that PSG have conceded in four of their last five home games at least makes 7/5 (2.40) appear good value on both sides finding the net in a home win.
