Lyon vs Ajaccio
France – Coupe de France
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
The Kids are one of the absolute best teams in the French top flight, which is dubbed as one of the top-five leagues in Europe. In fact, they are placed second in the table at present, above defending champions PSG.
They have lost just twice all through this league campaign, and they also have the third-best defense in the Ligue 1. Importantly, only the star-studded PSG have scored more goals than them this whole league season.
Meanwhile, the Bears are from the second division, and are struggling to hold a mid-table spot there. They also have been struggling on the road lately, and have been conceding goals in plenty in the process as well.
On top of that, Rudi Garcia’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this stadium.
As such, expect a Lyon win this Tuesday.

Likely, expect a Lyon victory this Tuesday against Ajaccio.
