Lyon host reigning Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the French top flight on Sunday evening.

OL briefly moved level with PSG at the table's summit with 13 points from the first 15 available but have lost their last two matches. Monaco defeated Lyon last weekend and are the only team to have taken points off PSG this term. Christophe Galtier's side have won their last five matches since that August aberration.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between two of French football's modern giants.

Presnel Kimpembe was also absent with a hamstring injury sustained against Brest last weekend. Galtier confirmed last Sunday that the French centre-back would be unavailable for the trip to Lyon.

Renato Sanches is also a doubt with a groin concern.

Lyon vs PSG score prediction

Despite their recent falterings, Lyon have made a strong start to the season, pressing aggressively and posing a potent threat going forward. Galtier has lamented how his PSG side have been "split in two" during their last two less than convincing victories, with the attacking and defensive units not in unison.

However, unlike Lyon, PSG have still cranked out a couple of victories during a dip - this is the benefit of having three of the world's best forwards in the same team with a year of adjustment already under their belts.

Lyon have made a 100% start to their season on home soil (four wins from four) but that streak may well come to a conclusion this weekend.

Prediction: Lyon 1-2 PSG
