PSG – Lyon betting tip, prediction & odds 21.04.2024

Ligue 1, Sunday, 21.04.2024

Paris Saint-Germain are still on course for the treble and could even challenge Bayer Leverkusen for the title of “most successful club of the 2023/24 season”.

While the Werkself can only win the second most important European Cup, the French club could secure the famous pot with the long ears …

In my PSG Lyon betting tip, however, I expect a slight drop in tension for the home side on Sunday, from which the team from the beautiful Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region, which has had the best start to the new year in the league, could now benefit

Personally, however, I had no doubt that the Parisians would get the better of the Catalans.

The French side’s fast attacking players forced Barcelona into some ill-advised moves in and around the penalty area last Tuesday, which did not go unpunished by the strict referee …

As a result, Paris St. Germain went on to win the second leg 4:1, which made up for the first leg defeat and gave the French side a ticket to the semi-finals of the Champions League, where BVB now await.

It would be a little premature to proclaim Paris as certain champions, but with a ten-point lead over immediate rivals Brest, the Almighty himself would have to intervene to prevent PSG from successfully defending their title.

With just one Ligue 1 defeat in the first 30 matchdays, Luis Enrique’s squad is simply too consistent and too well equipped to suddenly collapse.

However, their upcoming opponents promise to put the Parisians’ strong home record to the test. PSG have been unbeaten at the Parc des Princes for 23 first division games in a row (16 wins, 7 draws)

It will be a difficult game for the Champions League semi-finalists because no league rival has started the new year as well as OL.

In fact, Paris (23) and Lyon (25), the two Ligue 1 teams with the most points in the league since the New Year, meet head-to-head on Sunday.

That alone should make it clear to you why the “Gones” have a realistic chance of springing a surprise here, which the sports betting providers are trying to deny them with their rather one-sided PSG Lyon odds …

It’s too early to shift down a gear, so I expect Paris to play to win and put their best players in position.

In any case, the first-round duel was a clear demonstration of power as they triumphed 4:1 over Lyon. Kylian Mbappe even scored twice in the game to celebrate.

Nevertheless, I haven’t marked him as a possible goalscorer on my notepad for the second leg on matchday 30, as the odds aren’t high enough

Lyon will be much improved in almost all areas compared to the last time they met on matchday 4.

It’s no coincidence that they just managed to beat the current Ligue 1 runners-up 4-3.

However, the match against Stade Brest also took its toll, as left-back Nicolas Tagliafico will have to miss Sunday’s match due to a suspension

You should therefore not shy away from placing a double chance X2 bet here.

Furthermore, given the generous odds, it could even be worth using the Betway app to select a draw as a possible outcome.

In my opinion, the fivefold increase in the stake offered by the bookmakers for this completely outweighs the risk of failing on a corresponding tip X bet.

And why not give it a try? Although Paris are on course for the title, they have not won any of their last three Ligue 1 home games (3 draws).

Since the end of February, Luis Enrique’s side have drawn against Rennes (1-1), Reims (2-2) and, most recently, bottom club Clermont (1-1).

It is therefore worth considering whether Lyon, who are ahead of all these clubs in the standings, should also be given a chance to pick up a point at the Parc des Princes …

Conclusion: Lyon will be without their key left-back and will have to change their system if necessary. But this team is still good enough in all positions to demand everything from Paris on Sunday.

I don’t want to go so far as to say that Enrique’s team will start this clash with the handbrake on, but I personally don’t see them as the clear favorites.

If we also consider that only one of the last seven Ligue 1 duels between the two teams has gone to the home side, then it’s not far to my PSG Lyon betting tip …

It reads: Double chance X2
