Paris Saint-Germain is set for its final fixture before the September international break, as it will meet Olympique Lyonnais on Ligue 1 matchday eight.
PSG heads into this match on the heels of its 3-1 win over Maccabi Haifa in UEFA Champions League group stage play. Now, PSG will have yet another crucial test at this point in the season, and as noted by TyC Sports, manager Christophe Galtier could decide against resting any of the team’s attacking stars against Lyon.
Donnarumma; Ramos, Marquinhos, Pereira; Hakimi, Verratti, Ruiz, Bernat; Messi, Neymar, Mbappe
PSG midfielder Fabian Ruiz has so far featured in two matches over his early run with the club, and he has tallied a combined six ground duels won. Galtier could opt to bench Vitinha for this contest and start Ruiz in his place.
Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe all got on the scoresheet against Maccabi Haifa. They are all now set to once again lead PSG’s attack for a pivotal league encounter.
PSG has won three of its last four meetings against Lyon in Ligue 1 play.
