Ligue 1: Bordeaux vs Lyon Prediction

Bordeaux vs Lyon Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of Round 28 in Ligue 1, Bordeaux host Lyon at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Bordeaux vs Lyon.

Bordeaux stand at the 5th position in Ligue 1 and their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in Europa League next season. The match against Lyon is crucial for home side, so if they’ve been able to beat them the difference between them will be only one point. Home team don’t play impressive upfront their supporters, but their recent form is very good, so they hope that can win this game and stay in the race for the place which leads in Europe. In the first part of season Bordeaux beat Lyon away, so they believe that can make another good result against them. Home team have very solid attack, but their defence looks very shaky and they will have to do their best in order to secure their net, especially if we have in mind that visitors have one of the best attacks in league.

Lyon stand at the 4th position and it’s hard to believe that they can reach the Top 3, because 3rd on the table, Nice, have 13 points more. However, visitors want to cement their 4th position and play in the UEFA Europa League next season. In order to keep that position they have to make good result against Bordeaux. Every result, except home win, would be positive result for Lyon, but they will try to win this game and avoid uncertainty until the end of the season. Their top scorer, Lacazette, who has already scored 22 league games this season, is in the great form and he could be the most dangerous player for home defence. Visitors are in the great form with 4 consecutive wins in all competitions and managed to scored 20 goals. Without any doubt, they will try to continue with good performance, but home side also want three points, so I expect big football battle.

Home side miss Poundje, Sabaly, Toure and Traore, while on the other side visitors have full squad available, except Morel, who is doubtful.

Bordeaux vs Lyon Prediction

Both side need points, especially home side who have to win in order to stay in the race for the 4th position. Visitors are in the great form and they are favorites to win this game, but it won’t be an easy job. However, I expect interesting and open game between Bordeaux vs Lyon and at least three goals.
