France – Ligue 1: Lyon vs Caen Betting Tip


In the first match of 18th round in French Ligue 1, Lyon host Caen.

Lyon stand at the 3rd position with 33 points and their main goal is to qualify in the UEFA Champions League. They are playing very good this season, especially at home and they are currently the best home team in Ligue 1 (8-0-1).

The last week they beat Evian away 2-3 after very suspicious penalty in the injury time. It was their second consecutive wins and they are looking another three points upfront their supporters.

Gourcuff (7/3 m), Grenier (0/0 m), Fofana (0/0 m) and N’Jie (17/1 f) are all out.

Caen promoted to Ligue 1 last season and their main goal is to stay in the best football league in France. They are in the relegation zone and they have to start collect points in order to move up at the table.

In the last nine Ligue 1 matches they have managed to win only one game, but the interesting fact is that they scored on each match at least one goal.

The visitors are better away from home where they are playing open and more relaxing. In the nine away matches they scored 14 goals (only PSG and Marseille scored more), while on the other side they defence away is terrible.

Actually, Caen have the worst defence in Ligue 1.

Appiah (10/0 d), Musavu-King (6/1 d) and Lemar (12/0 m) are all out for this match.

Both teams have different ambitions and both need points. Lyon is a favorite to win this one, but I can’t underestimate the visitors who play very solid away from home.

I expect both teams to score in this match.
