PSG have built an exceptional squad this year and will not settle for anything less than a treble this season. With the likes of Messi and Neymar in their squad, the French giants hold the upper hand in almost every game they play.

Lyon will have to do without a few important players this weekend and are yet to find a talisman effective enough to replace Memphis Depay. PSG are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this match.
