PSG vs Lyon build-up & previous line-ups:
Paris Saint-Germain left the Jan Breydelstadion with a disappointing 1-1 result against Club Brugge putting them somewhat on the back foot heading into this weekend’s domestic action. It also increased the spotlight on their Champions League favourite tag which they earned following this summer’s transfer activity. Under pressure boss Mauricio Pochettino has at least seen his men take control of Ligue 1, after the opening five rounds just one side boasted a perfect record, the Parisians head into the latest round of fixtures with 15 points accumulated with only Troyes whom they faced on the opening weekend denying them a victory margin of two goals. Only twice before have PSG started a Ligue 1 campaign in similar fashion and on both those previous occasions (2017/18 and 2018/19) they’ve gone on to be crowned French champions.
The appointment of Peter Bosz from Bayer Leverkusen signalled a change in philosophy at Lyon who are desperate to end their long championship wait. Les Gones were last kings of France in 2008 and since then it’s been three runner-up finishes to shout about. Bosz — who took Ajax to a Europa League final at Lyon’s expense — started with two points from nine available. Lyon would recover by registering back-to-back wins over Nantes and Strasbourg before returning from Glasgow this week after beating Scottish champions Ranger in the Europa League group phase opening round. There’s a lot for Bosz to live up to considering Lyon have beaten PSG five times during the QSI era which is more than any other side since the start of the 2011/12 campaign.

Player to watch: Lionel Messi (PSG)
It was the signing of the summer and transfer story for the ages. Lionel Messi, who has only known Barcelona, became a free agent before swapping the Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain where he’s reunited with Neymar, his former Barça partner in crime. The six-time Ballon d’Or recipient has yet to pull up any trees and for good reason. He missed PSG’s opening two Ligue 1 matches through fitness issues before coming off the bench against Stade Reims for a 24 minute cameo. He wouldn’t affect the result and next time out against Clermont Foot the 34-year-old forward wasn’t part of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. Messi should make his Parc des Princes bow against Lyon, a team he’s faced six times before, subsequently registering five goals and three assists.
