Lyon vs PSG tips and predictions: Kylian Mbappe to mark farewell by ending Les Gones fairytale

The curtain comes down on the domestic season in France when Lyon and PSG battle in the Coupe de France final this Saturday (2000 BST).

There’s having a season of two halves… and then there’s Lyon.

Les Gones are capping off one of the craziest campaigns in their history and they could still finish with silverware.

If you haven’t been following Ligue 1 – which we wouldn’t blame you – you may have missed one of the maddest turnarounds of all time.

After the opening 14 rounds of the season, Lyon were bottom of the table having won just one league match.

The club were also on their third manager following the departures of Laurent Blanc and Fabio Grosso.

Former academy boss Pierre Sage stepped up to the hot seat and masterminded a run of 12 wins from Lyon’s last 15 games to bag a sixth-placed finish and secure European football for next season.

As well as his heroics in the league, Sage has overseen a run to the final of the cup, giving the club an opportunity to taste silverware for the first time since 2012.

In this fairytale story, a win for Lyon would cap off an incredible Hollywood script. But as we know, that’s not how football works.

PSG won’t be rolling over for anyone, especially in Kylian Mbappe’s farewell match.

The French superstar has won every accolade with the club apart from the Champions League.

The Parisians reached the semi-final but ultimately missed out and could end the campaign with just the league title should they fail to beat Lyon.

With the pressure on PSG to deliver at least a double, we’re backing the Parisians to do the business in Lille and win the match.

PSG have already picked up two 4-1 victories over Lyon this season. With that in mind, both teams to score is a good way to go in the betting.
