Bordeaux VS Lyon Predictions
Both Team To Score Tip: YES
Reason For Bordeaux VS Lyon Betting Tips
Both Bordeaux and Lyon are in strong form ahead of their Ligue 1 meeting this Friday evening in what could be a crucial clash for the race for fourth place in the division. The sides have had excellent wins of late but it is Bordeaux who are in the more solid form since the return to action following this season’s winter break. Lyon however have scored a total of 12 goals in their last 2 matches, putting a huge 7 past AZ Alkmaar and 5 past Metz on Sunday.
Lyon are now clear favourites to secure 4th place and with it a Europa League place for 2017/18, as they have a 4-point cushion from Bordeaux in 5th as well as a game in hand. Bordeaux have only lost 1 game since the beginning of 2017, a 3-0 defeat at home to champions PSG, and they look sure to finish at least 5th in the table. Sunday will be a big test for them however and they have won fewer than half of their games at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux this campaign.
Bordeaux have not had 1 standout player during the season and their top scorer is Francois Kamano who has just 6 goals to his name. They have managed only 35 goals altogether and have conceded 33. If they are to overhaul Lyon and manage to get 4th place then surely they will have to win Friday’s game.
Lyon meanwhile have looked an exciting attacking side in recent weeks, although their away form is still patchy. They have still won 42% of matches away from home but have often come unstuck against sides in and around them.
We expect this to be a close game with both sides going for the win. Our tip is to back a bet of Both Teams To Score which is at odds of 4/7 with bet365.
For our correct score bet we predict a 2-2 draw in this one, which is available at odds of 10/1 also with bet365.
