Our prediction for this Coupe de la Ligue match:
Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Lyon take on each other in the Coupe de la Ligue final as French football returns after the coronavirus break. Les Parisiens failed to win the League Cup trophy last term, and, no doubt, they are eager to regain the title. Thomas Tuchel’s troops have been scoring goals for fun in pre-season friendlies, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win Friday’s showdown at Stade de France.
Les Gones, on the other hand, are eyeing their first Coupe de la Ligue title since 2001, but they will have a big fish to fry against the star-studded French giants. Even though pacey attacker Kylian Mbappe misses the title game with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the Saints. Defender Thilo Kehrer is yet another absentee in the home team, while Juan Bernat is rated doubtful for the clash.
