Lyon vs PSG: The most important match in the title race

Four teams are in the race for the championship in France - Lille, Paris Saint-Germain, Lyon, and Monaco - and all four slipped in the last round. The worst was Paris Saint-Germain, who was left without a single point. The loss of points did not change anything dramatically.

You could say the same goal, the same distance, and the 30th round in Ligue 1 brings a derby match of teams from the top - Lyon will host Paris Saint-Germain. The shocking news is that the Parisians will be stronger for Neymar in the derby.

The Brazilian was injured against Caen about a month and a half ago, he missed a lot of important games, and Mauricio Pochettino announced his return to the team. "We will be reasonable. He has been out for five, almost six weeks.

Given that he is included in the team for the first time, it is unlikely that we will see him start the game. I am really glad that I can count on him," Pochetino said before the match with the Lions. If you ask leader Lille, the draw in Lyon would be the most acceptable option.

The Saints and Lions are three points behind the Lille, and have the same number of points. Paris Saint-Germain played in a relaxed manner after eliminating Barcelona from the Champions League, and it was that euphoria after the match with Barcelona and the celebration that cost them a bad result against Nantes The Canaries turned the Saints in Princes Park (1: 2).

Bad form

Olympique Lyonnais drew for the sixth time this season on the road (1: 1), and they reached the point against Reims in the 92nd minute through Kadewere. Neither Paris Saint-Germain nor Lyon have been famous for their results lately.

The Parisians have collected nine points in the previous five games, and the Lions eight points. Lille played very badly, luckily for Mauricio Pochetino and Rudi Garcia, so everything is still open in the championship race.

The Saints play equally well at home and away, or equally bad if you take into account that they already had the title in their pocket years ago at this stage of the championship. Lyon proved to be a better guest than the host.

In the first part of the season, the Lions triumphed in the Princes' Park with a goal by Kadewere. With the victory against Lyon, Mauricio Pochettino's team would put fierce pressure on Lille, and somehow, just before the meeting with the Lions, the news surfaced that the first arrow of Lyon, Memphis Depay, could wear the jersey of the Saints in the summer.
