Lyon vs Caen: Preview and Predictions

Lyon vs Caen-French Ligue 1-Predictions-11th March 2018

Lyon vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 11th March 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).

Lyon got another impressive win in the Europa League where they went to Russia and beat CSKA Moscow 1-0. Caen will be hoping that the trip would have taken a lot of energy out of the team and that they can come here and mount a surprise, but Lyon will be the favourites to win.

The home side are in 4th place and do need the win because they have slipped 5 points behind Marseille and a Champions League place however 4th place does look assured given that they have a 10 point advantage over Rennes. Form has been poor as the club have put all of their eggs into the Europa League basket and the club has no wins in their last five games. Their last 3 matches has ended in draws.

Caen look safe in 11th place with 35 points but won’t feel comfortable until their on 40. Form has been mixed with a good 2-0 win at home to Strasbourg last weekend and they have lost just 1 game in their past four matches but have drew too many lately.

Away from home Caen have poor form with just 3 wins all season and they have the worst record for scoring on the road in the league with just 7 all season.

Lyon vs Caen: Head to Head

  • Lyon have won the last 3 games played at home
  • At home Lyon have scored 9 goals in the last three games

Lyon vs Caen: Prediction

Lyon are just 1.50 for the win which doesn’t represent much value for a team that have just travelled to Russia. Whilst Lyon are the better side for this game we will look into value and turn our focus to the goal scorers market.
