Lyon looking to make it three wins in a row when Bordeaux comes to town

With Lyon once again looking to build up a head of steam in Ligue 1, the club is set to welcome Bordeaux to town on Saturday as they go in search of their third straight win in the league. The side has lost just one of its last 10 matches across all competitions – against PSG, naturally – and comes up against a struggling Bordeaux outfit that has lost its last three games on the bounce.

  • Lyon has won just one of its last seven games against Bordeaux, losing three.
  • Lyon has scored in each of their last 11 games against Bordeaux.
  • Bordeaux has won just one of its last five away matches in Ligue 1.

Lyon vs Bordeaux Game Center

Lyon looks to be on the rise once again

Lyon currently sits fourth in Ligue 1 with 20 points from 11 games played so far, a huge 13 points behind defending champions and table toppers PSG. While in stark reality it may appear that the title race is already all but over, Lyon’s recent form can give it ample room for optimism.

Furthermore, they look to have found their groove following a slow start to the season. The same cannot be said of Bordeaux, which after an encouraging Sportsbook few weeks of the campaign has gone on to lose its last three matches in a row across all competitions. They currently sit eighth in the table with 14 points and a negative goal difference.

It is therefore of little surprise to see Lyon come into this clash as the clear favorite to make it three league wins in a row. You can back the home side to take the points at just -250, while Bordeaux is out at +600 to make a return to winning ways. A draw is priced in the middle at +375.

Lyon to triumph in an entertaining game

One thing these two teams have in common is a less than rock-solid defensive backline. Both sides are currently conceding goals at a rate of over a goal a game, and for that reason we are expecting plenty of entertainment when these two meet on Saturday afternoon.

It can be a tough ask trying to predict the exact score in any given match, but a comfortable 3-1 win for Lyon is priced competitively at +1000. That outcome would thus allow you to also back OVER 2.5 goals in the game, which is priced short at -175, and both teams to score, which is at -134.

Again, think about using combo betting as an effective way of boosting any potential earnings you can make from this contest. For example, a Lyon win coupled with both teams scoring is at the higher price of +175, while a home win and OVER 3.5 goals comes in even higher, at +200.

You can also bet on the number of goals in the match. UNDER two goals is priced high at +400, while two or three goals sees that price drop to +110 and OVER three goals rises a little to +137.

Lyon likely to put on a show

With home advantage and confidence rising, we are fully expecting to see a show from Lyon against a beleaguered opponent. The home side is at +100 to score in both halves and +225 to go out and win both halves – something they managed in their last Ligue 1 match in front of their own fans, a 2-0 win against Nimes back on October 19.

Attacking midfielder Memphis Depay will be looking to get on the scoresheet once again after scoring the Sportsbook against Angers last time out. The Dutch international is at just -110 to score at any time during the game, while you can back him at +350 to net either the first or last goal in the contest, just as he did against Angers.

For Lyon, victory in this game could be a sure sign that they are over their early-season struggles and ready to challenge for honors. Bordeaux, meanwhile, will likely be left facing a fourth defeat in a row.
