The showpiece of the 20th round will undoubtedly be the duel between Lyon and Paris, but this time there is not much of a spectacle. The home side Lyon will miss the national trio of Toko Ekambi, Kadewere and Slimani, all offensive players. The Parisians are pretty similar in terms of absentees, rather worse. Apart from the long-term injured Neymar, eight players have tested positive for covid, including Lionel Messi (who has already started training slowly) , Angel Di Maria, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Julian Draxler, as well as a trio of African players who have left the national team (Hakimi, Diallo, Gueye).

Paris struggled against Lorient before Christmas (1-1) and without the aforementioned mainstays, Mauricio Pochettino's team will have a hard time again, even though they won the cup match last Monday (4-0 against Vannes, Mpappe's hat-trick). Lyon, on the other hand, is not having a good week at all, having failed to win five competitive matches in a row, drawing four times, and in the last draw against Metz, Peter Bosz's squad could very much regret a number of missed chances.

Paris go into the game as paper favourites, but Lyon have absolutely nothing to lose and could surprise the substitute away line-up. Given the big offensive absences on both sides, I'm going for the under 3.5 goals, which has been seen in four of the last five league games for both teams and offers solid odds here.

Under 3.5 Goals @ 1.53 (bet365)
