With Les Gones looking strong going forward themselves, Al Hain-Cole expects them to help ensure plenty of goals against Emery's prolific team

Lyon will be aiming to make a dent in Paris Saint-Germain’s sizeable lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table when the sides meet at the Groupama Stadium on Sunday.

Les Gones are 11 points adrift of the leaders in second place, despite winning five and losing none of their last six fixtures.

Match Odds

Nevertheless, they can be backed at 6/1 (7.00) with dabblebet to add a suggestion of interest to the title race by pulling off a shock win here.

Wednesday’s emphatic 8-0 thrashing against Dijon was an eighth win in succession in all competitions for Unai Emery’s team, who are clear 2/5 (1.40) favourites to move even further ahead of the chasing pack by coming out on top once again.

None of the last nine encounters between the teams have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 17/4 (5.75) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

Team News

Bruno Genesio welcomed Bertrand Traore and Mariano Diaz back from injury in Wednesday’s win over Guingamp, while Fernando Marcal is now back in training after missing the trip to the Stade du Roudourou.

Javier Pastore and Thiago Motta remain doubts for Les Parisiens after not featuring in midweek, although Adrien Rabiot, Marquinhos and Kylian Mbappe should return to the starting line-up.

Goals in store

It is a mark of the leaders’ embarrassment of attacking riches that PSG could afford to rest the likes of Mbappe - who came on with 20 minutes left before scoring the seventh goal - and still run out emphatic 8-0 winners over a Dijon team sitting comfortably in mid-table.

Having kept just one clean sheet in 10 games, it is hard to see the home defence coping with that kind of firepower, especially as it will be back to full strength.

However, averaging over two goals a game themselves, Lyon will fancy their chances of having some joy at the other end of the pitch against a back line that has conceded in five of their last seven league games.

Tips and Predictions

All in all, odds of 4/5 (1.80) are well worth backing on over 3.5 goals being scored for PSG’s fourth Ligue 1 matches in five.
