Lyon vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 29th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium (Lyon).
Week 22 of this exciting Ligue 1 season kicks off with Lyon taking on Bordeaux and the home team will be the favourites to win the match.
Lyon are in 3rd place and with PSG and Lille in 1st and 2nd respectively not playing until Sunday it means that victory here would see Lyon go top of the league by one point.
At the weekend Lyon beat Saint Etienne 5-0 and it was an important victory as they had failed to win their previous two games. Lyon needed a good victory just to inject them with some confidence and we head into the second half of the season.
Lyon have lost just once at home although this occurred in their last game to be played here when Metz shocked them by winning 1-0.
Bordeaux have climbed to seventh place after a turn around in form has seen the club win their last 3 games in a row. Lorient, Nice and Angers are the teams that Bordeaux have beaten and the club haven’t lost a match in just over 1 month.
If Marseille lose or draw and Bordeaux can win this game they would be 6th by the end of the weekend and the club will now have hopes of finishing in a European place with this sort of form.
Away form has been good and the club are undefeated in their last 3 matches losing just once from their last 5. Overall the club have won 40% of their games away from home.
Lyon vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- It’s been six games since Bordeaux beat Lyon in the league going back to 2018.
- Bordeaux haven’t won at Lyon in 5 years.
- There is an 80% chance to see both teams to score.
Lyon vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Lyon are the odds on favourites to win and their price is around 1.44 which is quite short and may put off some people. One of the choices we will opt for is to see both teams to score.
This is a very difficult game for Bordeaux but they are in form but even if they lose this game we can see them scoring a goal. The bigger question could be after Lyon scored 5 goals in their last game could they continue this trend for this game?
To make the price more value we are tempted to back Lyon to be winning at half time. When Lyon have been the home team this has won in their last 3 matches v Bordeaux. We expect to see a very entertaining game with chances for both sides.
