Lyon and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

This fixture has been quite an entertaining one recently with each of the previous six head-to-heads witnessing both teams score. However, Lorient have struggled on the road recently, losing all of their last three Ligue 1 away games and Lyon always look threatening on home soil. Both teams should fire here but we like the look of Lyon emerging as victors.

Lyon 2-1

Reason for tip

This is unlikely to be a blowout victory for either of these two teams. A single goal margin of victory looks extremely possible and given the contrasting forms, we’ll back a 2-1 victory for Lyon.

Lyon vs Lorient Predictions

  • Each of the previous six meetings have seen both teams score.
  • Lorient have shipped at least one goal in 10 of their 12 road fixtures.
  • Lyon are unbeaten across their last four home games.

Two sides with higher ambitions go to battle

The hosts have a bit of a mountain to climb if they want to qualify for the European competitions via the league as despite going unbeaten in three of their last four league outings, winning three, they occupy ninth place in the table and are eight points adrift of the top five. They’ve been fairly solid at home, having taken points in nine of their 12 matches at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. However, preventing their opponents from scoring has been an issue all season as they have conceded in nine of their 12 home league outings.

Lorient sit a point and a place ahead of Lyon coming into this match and they could potentially close the gap to those above them if they were able to claim victory. They boast the fifth best away record in the league but have stumbled on the road lately, losing all of their last three Ligue 1 away days, conceding eight goals.

Lyon to edge fascinating encounter

This should be an extremely competitive clash and both sides will inevitably get opportunities. Both teams score in each of the last six meetings between these two outfits and similar can be expected here. However, we think on home soil that Lyon may just be able to edge this one and take another step towards improving their league position.
