Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc predicts an intense encounter on Sunday when his side welcome Lyon to the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has said that Sunday's clash with Lyon will be an intense encounter.

PSG welcome Lyon to the Parc des Princes with the Parisians looking to turn around a poor start that has already seen them drop six points from five games this season.

"We know this team very well. Last year, we played them several times," Blanc told the team's official website.

"They had a few problems at the start of the season with a lot of injuries. We had a player that was with us for the preseason before joining them in the form of Christophe Jallet.

"It will be a good game. I think Lyon will be coming to Paris looking to play football. When the opposition comes to try and win the game, like Ajax, it makes for intense matches. I think that will be the case on Sunday."

PSG currently find themselves in sixth spot in the Ligue 1 table, with a game in hand over most other sides in the league.
