      Tip Reasoning

      What do we make of Lyon so far this season? They’ve lost just the one game, a 2-1 home defeat to Rennes, but they’ve been held to draws in three of their six games. There’s just something off about this team right now. They’ve scored seven goals in six games, and four of those came in one 4-0 win over Caen, which might’ve represented a breakout of sorts, but it was quickly followed by a 0-0 home draw against Lille.

      Manager Hubert Fournier has some mixing up to do, he has plenty of young players to mix into his starting line-up, but French football continues to lack big names outside of PSG’s line-up. Perhaps that slight lack of extra experience and cutting edge quality are just hurting Lyon as they try to figure things out early this season.

      Last weekend represented by far Bastia’s most disappointing performance of the season so far. They were beaten 3-1 at home by Nice and were guilty of some defensive lapses.

      They’ve now lost three straight games, though away losses to St Etienne and Marseille are nothing to sniff at. A trip to Lyon is hardly what this side would have ordered, expect them to load up men behind the ball and to play three men deep in midfield in front of their back four.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Lyon’s attacking struggles

      The onus will be on Lyon to push the pace in this game, but they just haven’t been a threatening looking team so far this season. The 4-0 win against Caen looks like an aberration. Right now, Fournier will be as concerned about getting wins as opposed to the style involved in those victories.

      2. Bastia will set up shop

      A disappointing defensive performance combined with a three-game losing streak will surely see Bastia roll out the 0-0 draw formation for this Wednesday match-up.

      3. Lyon win odds aren’t worth it

      We just think there are too many variables to play around with a Lyon win at 1/12 or the -1.0 Asian Handicap. This could easily be a tightly-played, defensive style contest.
