The Paris Saint-Germain vs. Olympique Lyonnais fixture has become the headliner in Ligue 1. PSG has emerged as the dominant force in the league, while Lyon is full of promising talents up and down its roster.
This fixture is more anticipated this time around because of Lyon’s surge in league play as of late. A win for Lyon over PSG could give the side a first-place standing following matchday 14.
Here is how PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is rolling out his side against Lyon.

Keylor Navas will make the 10th league start of his season against Lyon. The Costa Rican goalkeeper sure will look to notch the seventh clean sheet of his Ligue 1 campaign in this contest.
Tuchel has penciled in Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, and Leandro Paredes to form PSG’s midfield setup in this match. On Paredes’ part, he will make the ninth Ligue 1 appearance of his campaign against Lyon.
Neymar heads into this fixture in top form, as he has recorded six goal contributions in five league starts this season. For Moise Kean, he will aim to keep his quality form in league play going, while this will be a key contest for Di Maria after he went multiple matches without a start in all competitions.
PSG has won four straight matches against Lyon in all competitions.
