PSG - OL: Closer than ever
With 26 points from the first 13 rounds, and just one defeat, OL have made a very good start to the season, despite a mediocre start. A few days ahead of facing Paris Saint-Germain, league leaders and favorites for the title, Rudi Garcia's men can make good on their ambitions. As they are only two points behind the capital club as of the end of the thirteenth Matchday, our Lyonnais can relive a situation they have not experienced since the 2014-2015 season: after 13 rounds OL, then third on 26 points, were behind PSG, then second in Ligue 1 by just one point. The difference is that in 2014, the two teams had already met in the sixth match of the season.
The best team in the league over the last seven matches, having taken 19 points from 21 available, Olympique Lyonnais know that they can approach this match at the Parc des Princes with confidence, Karl Toko Ekambi, Lyon's man in form said as much after the victory in Metz, noting that OL would go to Paris "ready for battle". It's a state of mind that is without a doubt shared by the rest of the group.
