Lorient – Lyon Free Betting Tips
This is definitely not Ol’s season. Lyon, besides the fact that they have been deposed by the federation with one point, after 26 rounds, the Lyon team is only 10th.
Lyon, after losing to AS Monaco 4 rounds ago, managed to win at home against 3rd place Nice and draw against 6th place Nantes.
However in the last round, they were defeated at home by Lille (score 0-1), another team that this season does not even remotely resemble the team that won Ligue 1 last season. In the 86th minute of the match against Lille, Brazilian Lucas Paqueta managed to equalize, but the goal was disallowed by VAR because of a foul.
On the other side, Lorient managed to get out of the red zone of the standings thanks to the 7 points collected in the last 4 rounds, but also to the fact that Troyes and Metz (17th and 18th place respectively) fail to win. They are two points ahead of 19th place, which would relegate them.
The Oranje won in the last round at Brest (12th place), thanks to Kone’s goal in the 73rd minute. However, we have to take into account that Brest played with 10 men from the 29th minute, when Chardonnet saw red directly.
I expect to see a tight game between the two, with few goals, that’s why I will bet on a score Under 2.5 as the last 4 rounds played by Lorient, but also the last 4 played by Lyon. Also the Under 2.5 also finished the first leg, but also the last game played between the two on Lorient’s field, both games having the same score, 1-1.
UNDER 2.5 GOALS – Odds: 1.95
