PSG v Lyon live stream: Watch French Cup online | Prediction

Published: 19:00, 31 July 2020

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to make it a clean sweep of France’s domestic competitions when they face Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue final on Friday evening (20:10 kick off).

Thomas Tuchel’s men were named champions and recently won a record 13th Coupe de France title at Saint-Etienne’s expense, with Neymar scoring the only goal.

It’s been a barren few seasons for Lyon whose last major trophy came in 2012 when they claimed the Coupe de France, beating Quevilly, but since then it’s been a case of a few missed opportunities.

PSG v Lyon confirmed line-ups:

  • PSG (4-3-3): Navas; Kurzawa, Kimpembe, Silva, Bakker; Verratti, Marquinhos, Gueye; Di Maria, Icardi, Neymar
  • Lyon (3-1-3-2): Lopes; Marçal, Marcelo, Denayer; Guimarães; Dubois, Cornet, Caqueret, Aouar; Dembélé, Depay

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe is sidelined for three weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in his side’s Coupe de France win over Saint-Étienne. Thilo Kehrer is also absent for the French champions. Lyon, meanwhile, have a full squad available with Memphis Depay hoping to make a return to first-team action following his recovery from an ACL tear.

Players to watch:

  • PSG: Thomas Tuchel was dealt a blow with Mbappe’s injury, the French marksman is set to miss their Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta, but given the club’s attacking riches there’s always someone who can take on his duties. Mauro Icardi is one such individual. His debut campaign in Paris — yielding 20 goals in 32 games — was a relative success, but the Argentine striker knows he can do better, and with him now becoming a permanent acquisition from Inter Milan there’s no hiding place.
  • Lyon: As touched upon, Memphis Depay is set to return for Lyon after his initial 2019/20 season was cut short in December after sustaining a serious knee injury. That knock initially saw his Euro 2020 dreams go up in smoke, but with the competition postponed until next year Depay has been given a new chance to make his mark. He’s been nothing short of sensational following his move to France from Manchester United, having registered 53 goals and 43 assists in 134 matches.

Scoreline prediction: PSG 2-1 Lyon
