Preview: Paris Saint-Germain vs. Lyon

Sports Mole previews the match at the Parc de Princes between Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon.

Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to improve on their recent results when they host Lyon on Sunday evening.

Before the international break, the Ligue 1 champions won 5-0 against Saint-Etienne to suggest that they had started to find top gear after a slow start to the campaign, but some of that momentum has been lost with back-to-back draws with Rennes and Ajax respectively.

Manager Laurent Blanc will be without David Luiz, who is absent with a knee problem, while Thiago Silva remained sidelined with a thigh muscle strain.

Lyon are in buoyant mood after last weekend's 2-1 win against Monaco ended a run of three straight defeats.

Coach Hubert Fournier remains under pressure at Stade de Gerland, but after a week of preparation due to their early exit from the Europa League, he will be targeting another scalp against PSG.

Barring no late injury issues, Fournier is likely to keep the same team for their visit to the Parc des Princes.
