PSG take on Lyon at Wörthersee Stadion in the Trophée des Champions 2016.
Rather predictably PSG won both championship and national cup in France last season. This summer their head coach Laurent Blanc was replaced by Spaniard Unai Emery who is determined to bring Champions League title to Paris. On top of that, team’s leader and best striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the club as well as defenders Lucas Digne and Gregory van der Wiel. PSG signed Krychowiak, Lo Celso, Meunier and Ben Arfa. During their preseason PSG played 4 friendlies and won all of them: West Bromwich Albion (2:1), Inter (3:1), Real (3:1) and Leicester City (4:0). We should mention Emery’s side showed very impressive attacking performance.

Last season Ligue 1 runner-up Lyon finished 31 points behind PSG. This summer the visitors signed N'Koulou, who is to replace Umtiti, Mammana and Rybus. We should say Lyon also played confidently during their preseason friendlies as they outplayed Zenit (2:1), Sporting (1:0) and Benfica (3:2) and tied Bourg Peronnas (2:2).
PSG won 4 of their last 5 games against Lyon including last-season Trophée des Champions. We expect the hosts to be victorious once again. Despite departure of Zlatan, PSG have strengthened their squad significantly and Cavani will do his best to replace Swedish giant.
Prediction for the match: PSG to win.
