Lyon to Claim the Derby Bragging Rights
Saint-Etienne suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Strasbourg last time out, while Lyon were beaten 1-0 in their own backyard by Metz. The gap between these two clubs remains at 21pts, with Lyon sitting pretty in 3rd spot and Saint-Etienne struggling in 16th position.
Lyon have had the better of Saint-Etienne in recent seasons, winning five, drawing one and losing just one of the last seven Ligue 1 derbies. Over 2.5 goals were scored as Lyon beat Saint-Etienne 2-1 in November’s reverse league fixture and the performances of the two clubs so far this season suggest that Lyon are best placed to win again this weekend.
The visitors are the form favourites with three wins, two draws and one defeat from their last six matches, as Saint-Etienne have only managed to win one of their last six league games. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the host’s and five of the visitor’s last six outings, which suggests that we will be treated to at least three goals on Sunday.
With history and form behind them, we’re backing Lyon to win on Sunday and for over 2.5 goals to be scored in the process. The visitors have scored three or more goals in three of their last five matches and with that in mind, we’re backing a final scoreline of 3-1 this weekend.
