Bordeaux vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 26 April 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut-Atlantique (Bordeaux).
Lyon returned to winning ways after losing three on the spin in all competitions seven days ago when they saw off Angers 2-1 at Groupama Stadium.
Memphis Depay and Martin Terrier closed the job for Les Gones in the first half of the game to help Bruno Genesio’s men stay three points above Saint-Etienne in the battle for the third position and a place in the Champions League next season.
Les Gones still have to work hard to secure this spot, though. They are threatened by Saint-Etienne and Marseille and there are still five games left to play.
Can Bruno Genesio’s troops make it two wins in a row on Friday evening when they are set to open Matchday No 34 against Bordeaux away at Stade Matmut-Atlantique?
Bordeaux vs Lyon: Head-to-head
Lyon were the more successful side in the history of their head to head meetings with Les Girondins.
However, Bordeaux are unbeaten in last four clashes against Les Gones, two of which they’ve won.
Each of past five head to head ties saw goals scored at both ends.
Outfits shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they locked horns in this term of Ligue 1 back in early-November last year.
Bordeaux vs Lyon: Prediction
Unlike Lyon, Les Girondins have nothing to play for in remaining five matches of the season. The lack of motivation may have caused two consecutive defeats to Saint-Etienne and Nimes. Bordeaux were very easy to break down conceding five goals in these two ties.
On the other side, we also have to mention Bordeaux’s fine home record so far in the season. They won 7, drew 6 and lost only 3 of 16 league affairs at Stade Matmut-Atlantique. Given Lyon lost four, drew one and won just one of past six away matches across competitions, we will reconsider the away win bet at the odds of 1.66.
Backing goals at both ends looks to be a much wiser betting option if we know that each of past five head to head outings brought just this scenario.
