11.01: Bordeaux vs Lyon

Bordeaux welcomes Lyon on January 11th for a game of the 20th round in the French Ligue 1.

Bordeaux

At the beginning of the year, January 4, Bordeaux won a home game against Le Mans (2:0) in the match of 1/32 finals of the French Cup. As French Ligue 1 is concerned, their last game on December 22nd against Rennes ended in a 1:0 defeat. December 15, the team lost to Strasbourg at home (0:1). Prior to that, on December 9th, Lyon lost to Marseille (3:1). The club currently sit in the 13th place in the standings with 26 points. They are 5 points away from Lille, which occupies the 4th place. It is not much at all. And 4th place means a chance to play in the Champions’ League. Something worth fighting for. There are no injured players in Bordeaux, so, we expect a decent home game.

Lyon

Lyon’s last game was on January 9th in 1/32 final of the French Cup. At home, they defeated Brest (3:1), and four days earlier, also in the French Cup match Lyon crushed a small club Bourg-en-Bresse (0:7). The team is currently in the 12th place in the standings with the same points as Bordeaux.

December 22, Lyon played a draw game with Reims (1:1). And December 16, they lost at home to Rennes (0:1). There are two players injured in the team, Memphis Depay and Jeff Reine-Adelaide.

Prediction

Both teams need points because the gap between them and the 4th place is only 5 points. So, in the upcoming match Bordeaux and Lyon will be playing active attacking football. We suggest placing a bet that both teams will score for a coefficient 1.93
