Paris Saint-Germain is now set for the first major Ligue 1 test of its season, as the side will be taking on Olympique Lyonnais on matchday six. PSG currently sits at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 15 points, and it could extend its league lead over the rest of the teams in the top four with a possible win in this showdown.
PSG has one notable injury storyline, as Kylian Mbappe is currently being tabbed as a game-time decision due to an ankle injury.
Still, as noted by WhoScored, PSG is expected to roll out a formidable lineup for this matchup.
Donnarumma; Mendes, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Hakimi; Herrera, Gueye; Neymar, Messi, Di Maria; Icardi
Ander Herrera has been in top form for PSG in all competitions as of late. Thus, the Spanish midfielder is projected to earn yet another key start in Ligue 1 play.
As mentioned, Mbappe is currently recovering from a nagging ankle injury. At the least, the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar may go on to lead the team’s attack in this fixture.
PSG sure does need a standout attacking display in this matchup following its 1-1 draw result against Club Brugge in UEFA Champions League group stage play.
