Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain confront each other in a semi


Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain will clash in a semi-final in the French Cup on Wednesday at Parc des Olympique Lyonnais, inform agencies. 

The previous time when the two teams met in a cup competition was back in 2016 when they contested in the French Super Cup final, which ended in 4:1 victory for the capital side.

The two teams already met twice this season, with the most recent held just less than a month ago in the French capital. PSG won both league meetings, triumphing 0:1 in Lyon and 4:2 in Paris three weeks ago. 

No draw has been registered in the last fourteen H2H clashes and only two of those were won by the away sides. Four of the last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals and three witnessed goals at both ends.

Lyon stabilized their performance and did not lose any of the previous five matches, recording four victories in the process. Prior to that the team failed to win three games in a row, losing twice.  Lyon are currently on a run of three consecutive victories, with the most recent one achieved on Sunday against St Etienne. Just one of their last eight matches was won by the visiting sides. All of Lyon last five outings produced under 2,5 goals, while one witnessed goals at both ends.

Paris Saint-Germain trashed Dijon at the weekend with 4:0, keeping a first clean sheet in six matches. Now two of their last three victories have come against the same opponent, as earlier in February PSG trashed Dijon with 1:6 away from home. 

The Parisians conceded nine goals in the previous three meetings, but on the contrary scored 18 in the last four on the domestic front. Understandably, all of their last five outings featured over 2,5 goals and four witnessed goals at both ends.
