Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
All eyes will be on Groupama Stadium when Olympique Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain face each other in the Ligue 1 derby. Lyon dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Angers at the weekend, but they proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Guingamp on Wednesday evening. Les Gones are eyeing a place in the Champions League and they are desperate to grab something from the classic against Unai Emery’s troops. Les Parisiens rolled over Dijon (8-0) in their last league match and thanks to the triumph they cemented top position in the Ligue 1 standings. A win over Lyon would see them move one step closer to regaining the trophy and we predict that both teams will go for a victory in Sunday’s football match. A lively contest is on the cards and we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
Highlighted Player (Bertrand Traore):
Bertrand Traore is a pacey left-footed winger who plays for Ajax on loan from Chelsea. The Burkina Faso footballers scored 17 goals in 48 league appearances for Vitesse before joining Ajax on 12 August, 2016. Traore made his Ajax debut in a 2-2 draw with Roda, coming as a substitute in the second half of the game. He made his Champions League debut for the Amsterdammers against Rostov on August, 2016. Bertrand, though, is still a Chelsea player and his contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit expires on 30 June, 2019. Traore a winger, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward as well. The Burkina Faso footballer was born on 6 September, 1995 and he made his debut for the Burkina Faso national team on 3 September, 2011 in a friendly game against Equatorial Guinea. The same year he won the African U17 Championship with Burkina Faso as the Stallions defeated Rwanda in the final of the tournament.
Highlighted Team (Paris SG):
Formed by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain in 1970, Paris Saint-Germain or as they call it PSG is the most successful club in French football with 31 domestic titles to their name. Having won six Ligue 1 title so far, a record ten Coupes de France, a record six Coupes de la Ligue, six Trophees des Champions and one Ligue 2 title, PSG are also one of only two French clubs to ever win a European title. Les Parisiens were crowned UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup champions back in 1995-96, while their last European trophy was the 2001 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Beginning of the new millennium was particularly hard for the celebrated club who flirted with relegation in 2000s before they were bought by the Quatar Sports Investments group in 2011 when the rebirth of the Paris Saint-Germain as we know it today began. Following heavy squad investments and team boosting, PSG won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years with Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost singlehandedly leading his side towards the trophy with 30 goals. Having established domestic dominance, PSG now set their sights on winning the Champions League which remains an elusive dream for the club from Paris.
