Lyon to outgun Bordeaux
Lyon have been playing some scintillating attacking football of late, and their abundance of firepower should allow them to outscore Bordeaux at the Groupama Stadium on Friday evening.
Les Gones flexed their considerable muscle in a superb five-star, five goal showing at St. Etienne last time out, bringing the title chasers haul up to an impressive 17 goals in their last seven Ligue 1 assignments.
Only a powerhouse PSG (48) have scored more often than Lyon (44) in France this term, but while we expect the goal-getting potential strewn across Les Gones’ frontline to fire them to glory again this week, a clean sheet against Bordeaux looks unlikely.
Remarkably, both teams have found the net in nine of the last 11 encounters between Lyon and Bordeaux, including 100% of the last eight skirmishes between the pair, and Les Girondins’s record of scoring at least once in 10 of their last 11 Ligue 1 fixtures this season, suggests they can notch a consolation effort this week.
With that considered, the Lyon and both teams to score combination looks an attractive option at the prices quoted, while our 3-1 correct score prediction tips the hosts to maintain their free-wheeling attacking performances at Bordeaux’s expense.
