Betting Insight: Can Bordeaux Close Out Lyon?

Happy are those who follow our tips – We are on form. We predicted a no win for PSG, and oh yes, they lost 1-0 to newcomers Lens.

Like the old adage goes, never change a winning team, we are also going to stick in French Ligue 1 even tonight.

There is an interesting fixture between Bordeaux and Lyon at the Nouveau stade de Bordeaux tonight.

Bordeaux are yet to concede a goal in their opening two games of the season; They held Nantes to a goalless draw after having a man sent off and later beat Angers 2-0.

Such has been the right organisation of veteran defender Laurient Koscielny and his defensive partner Paul Bayse. Senegal’s Youssouf Sabaly and Switzerland’s left back Loris Benito have also been solid at full back positions as well, as it stands.

However, in Lyon, they face a difficult side that heavily relies on their attacking prowess to break down anyone.

After that impressive Champions League run to the semis where they were stopped by ruthless Bayern Munich, Lyon kicked off their league campaign with a convincing 4-1 win over Dijon.

The Visitors will go all out to extend their perfect start after missing out on Champions League spot last season – Lyon were 7th when the 2019/20 league was ended to hand PSG the title.

The title might have been out of their reach, but Lyon were offended by the fact that the league was not resumed as they believed that they had a chance to move into the top four seats.

Crying for spilt milk is over now, and focus has already been shifted to the new season as evidenced by their opening day mauling.

Who To Trust?

With Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembele and Carl Toko Ekambi, Lyon can score against anyone in the division. In fact, only PSG (75) and Monaco (44) scored more goals than Lyon’s 42 last season. However, calling them to fetch a win on the road these early days into the season may look like a big ask. I have looked into the stats and realised that the last eight meetings between these two sides have produced a goal goal (both teams to score) including a 1-1 draw and a 2-1 Lyon win last season. And, I am tipping a both teams to score on this one. Check odds here.

All the best. Betting is for above 18, kindly be advised that Betting can be addictive.
