Lyon vs Bordeaux Predictions

  • Bordeaux are undefeated in their last two games
  • Lyon have failed to win six of their last seven games in all competitions.
  • Lyon have lost one half of football in 50% of their last ten games.

Bordeaux might be underestimated for Lyon clash

Bordeaux are an interesting proposition for this weekend’s trip to Lyon after starting to look like a functioning football team again over the past couple of games. David Guion’s men followed up their creditable 0-0 draw at Lille with a 3-1 home dismissal of Metz to move off the bottom of Ligue 1.

It’s impossible to ignore the fact that they have found some momentum and most of the players are showing the sort of ability that was expected of them when they were signed. The question of whether it will be enough to win – or avoid defeat – against Lyon is largely up to Lyon and how they view this game.

Les Gones had pushed their chips all in on the Europa League – that competition offering a welcome distraction to a disappointing domestic campaign until Thursday’s pathetic exit to West Ham. Lyon are drifting in mid-table some ten points off the Champions League places and at least two wins away from even making it back into the top five.

Les Gones’ Euro distractions could play into visitors hands

Two wins from their last seven in Ligue 1 suggest they are a touch short in the market here at 2/7 with Bordeaux much more tempting at 5/2 to avoid defeat. However, the nagging feeling that they are up against a superior team both on paper and in practice is enough to take us in another direction.

If Lyon are slow out of the blocks or suffer any Europa League fatigue factor late in the game, there’s a chance Bordeaux could win one of the two halves of football – for which the odds are very good. Lyon have lost one half of football in five of their last ten Ligue 1 games.

Les Girondins showed a collective spirit and some mental toughness against Metz, so there’s a chance they could even hold off Lyon if they get in front at Groupama Stadium, so we could even be tempted by a 2-1 correct score forecast in their favour at attractive odds.
