Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt when PSG and Lyon face each other in the French Super Cup. Les Parisiens aim to put icing on the cake on the successful 2015/2016 campaign, but Saturday’s football match against les Gones will be anything but a walk in the park for the Ligue 1 champions. Lyon have been in a thrilling form of late, with the team beating the likes of Zenit, Sporting and Benfica in last three warm-up games and we predict that les Gones are going to find the net against PSG. Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the Parc des Princes outfit in the summer transfer window, but considering that les Parisiens defeated the likes of Inter, Real Madrid and Leicester City at the International Champions Cup, we are positive that the French giants are going to score against Lyon in the French Super Cup. In previous four meetings between the two teams in all competitions 15 goals were netted.
Highligted Player (Krychowiak):
Born on 29 January 1990, Grzegorz Krychowiak began his professional career at Bordeaux, but having failed to be given a proper chance to impress by les Girondins, he instead gained valuable first team experience during loan spells with Reims and Nantes. Reims decided to purchase his contract in 2012 and that proved a great decision as the Polish midfielder impressed in two Ligue 1 seasons, scoring 8 goals in 70 appearances to secure a lucrative move to Sevilla. Krychowiak didn’t need a lot of time to prove his worth in Spanish La Liga as he quickly developed into one of the league’s best central midfielders, while helping los Rojiblancos defend the Europa League trophy in 2014/2015. Numerous top clubs have been casting admiring glances his way and it is just a matter of time before the midfielder leaves his current employers for greener pastures. Krychowiak needed some time to become an indispensable member of the Poland national team, but he has since grown into a genuine leader and is now among the first names on the team sheet.
