Lyon vs Bastia
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick Off at 19:00 UK.
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon.
Lyon have had some glorious moments already this season. But it’s fair to say that they have been average and are under performing with the quality they have in the side. They did get an impressive 2-1 victory at Toulouse last weekend but has still lost 3 games from their past five matches. At home they have lost two matches but these have come in their last 4 games.
As we enter November it is clear that Lyon are still finding their footing and the best tactical line up to get consistent results at home.
Bastia are searching for an escape clause right now because they have gone 4 games without a win. They did at least show fight in getting a draw last weekend against Dijon but that match ended 0-0 and Bastia really need to taste victory. Most will be expecting that it won’t happen away to Lyon.
Lyon vs Bastia: Head to Head Stats
Bastia hasn’t beaten Lyon away from home and Lyon have 4 straight home victories over them. This is a case where the away team in this fixture don’t travel well. This fixture has a history of goals so over 2.5 goals would be beneficial. However the last four fixtures have seen fewer than 3 goals. The law of averages thrown in this should be about to change. Lyon has the joint 3rd best record in Ligue 1 for scoring at home.
Lyon vs Bastia: Prediction
Bastia isn’t scoring enough goals and Lyon should be able to punish them for this. Alexandre Lacazette looks back to his best for the home side scoring a brace last weekend, and he should be our main bet in this match.
