Lyon vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 3rd November 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Olympique Lyonnias (Lyon).
Lyon have regained some of their pride back in recent weeks with back to back wins in the league which have come across Nimes and Angers. These wins were important and have moved the club up into 4th place and just 5 points behind second placed Lille.
Lyon will be the favourites to conquer Bordeaux at the weekend and their home form has been good with just 1 defeat so far and they haven’t lost at home since the end of August.
Bordeaux are in 8th place and 6 points behind their hosts. They come into this game having lost back to back matches against Montpellier and Nice and the team have lost their way somewhat since the international break. Whilst they have been picking up points at home with some great results, their away form leaves much to be desired and they have won just 1 game on the road this season.
Bordeaux have only beaten Guingamp, the bottom club which should say a lot about the club’s away form this season and that is why Lyon will rightly start as odds on favourites.
Lyon vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture was a thriller and it ended 3-3.

Lyon vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Lyon as expected are odds on of around 1.44 (4/9) to win and that doesn’t offer us much value, so instead we will pick a goalscorer for anytime. But our main bet will be to see both teams to score in this game. Bordeaux do have goals in them and Lyon will score at home which should be a given. Plus history is with us on this, so we will go maximum stakes for this main bet. We should expect to see a very exciting game full of goals.
Lyon vs Bordeaux: Bet Tips
