Caen have recovered well in the league after predictably losing their opening game of the season to PSG and have gone 3 games unbeaten with two draws and one win. Their victory came in their last game and it was an impressive one as they went to Dijon and won 2-0.

Lyon will be under pressure to perform and get a result at a tricky ground. At this moment they have no consistency and have already fallen 6 points behind league leaders PSG. From their opening 4 games they have won 2 but lost 2. Both losses were seen as shocks with the first losing to newly promoted Reims by 1-0. Then they lost at home to Nice 1-0 a team that have had a poor start and this was seen as quite a shock.

It is clear that there is no cohesion within the players and it will be up to manager Bruno Genesio to work on that. Extra training has been called for as Lyon try to find their rhythm.

Caen vs Lyon: Head to Head

Last season Lyon won this fixture 2-1.

Caen have won 3 of the last 5 fixtures played at home against Lyon.

The last two matches played at Caen have seen both teams to score.

Caen vs Lyon: Prediction

Lyon are odds on to win this game and we have to wonder if that is justified given their uneven start. They do have the better team and players such as Nabil Fekir will always remain a threat. But Caen will be basing their success of their season on home form and will not be easy to beat.

Our bet here is to back Caen but on the handicap advantage of a goal. We also like Enzo Crivelli to score during this match he has been on good form for the home side.

Caen vs Lyon: Bet Tips

  • Caen to beat Lyon with a +1 goal start on the handicap at 2.10 (11/10)
  • Anytime goal-scorer: Enzo Crivelli (Caen) at 4.00 (3/1).
