Competition: French Super Cup
Market: PSG to win against Lyon
Odds: 8/13 @ Ladbrokes
Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain face runners-up Olympique Lyonnais in the French Super Cup this weekend. The Parisians are favourites to come out on top given their dominance in the country over the last few years, as well as having a daunting strike force capable of beating any side.
A front three featuring the likes of Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi sees Lyon as big underdogs on Saturday. PSG are hoping to enjoy another successful season in the domestic campaign, but were held to a draw in both meetings against Lyon. As a result, the Super Cup final is sure to be a close affair between the two sides.
PSG manager Laurent Blanc will be looking to get the new season off to winning ways, and Ladbrokes are giving odds of 8/13 for the French giants to see past Lyon. Last season saw the Parisians win the domestic treble (Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue), and they’re hoping to pick up where they left off last season with a cup triumph in their first competitive fixture.
