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 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.
