France's Ligue 1 season may have been curtailed back in March, but the competitive action from the 2019/20 campaign is not yet over in the region with the final of the Coupe de la Ligue still to be played. Follow along with all of the action wherever you are with our PSG vs Lyon live stream guide.

Both teams travel to the Stade de France for today's fixture which sees this year's Ligue 1 and Coupe de France champions PSG take on Lyon in a bid to secure a domestic treble for the 2019/20 campaign. The game will take place with just a small number of fans in attendance.

PSG were declared 2019/20 Ligue 1 winners when the season was cut short in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Unlike the Spanish, Italian, and English top-tier leagues, the remainder of the season in France was cancelled and the Parisians were awarded their ninth title on a points-per-game basis. That same process left Olympique Lyonnais in 3rd position in the league.

Lyon have been back in action in friendly games to get in shape for the return of competitive fixtures, including a huge 12-0 win against Swiss amateur club US Port Valais. While that might not have been the toughest test, OL also recorded victories over Scottish champions Celtic, Belgian sides Gent and Royal Antwerp, as well as Ligue 1's Nice.

There were no signs of rust on PSG's return either with some impressive scorelines in recent friendly wins prior to lifting the Coupe de France last week against Saint-Etienne. Claude Puel's men are hoping to win their ninth French League Cup tonight and achieve a domestic treble, though the absence of Kylian Mbappé through injury will be a blow. They also have Champions League football on the horizon.
