Lyon vs Caen – Ligue 1.
Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Decines Charpieu – 14 February, 13:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Probably only the bravest fans of Caen expected to see their team with equal number of points as Lyon after 25 matches in Ligue 1, which is definitely good achievement for team which had lower expectations. Situation for them was even better few weeks ago but few consecutive defeats made their placement slightly worse. Caen will be traveling to play Lyon this Sunday and anything besides safe home win, probably with 2 or 3 goals advantage would be considered as upset. Hosts to win option is currently backed up with 5/9 rate. Lyon were ruthless to Caen in first match they have played this season by winning the game 4 – 0. N.Fekir probably had match of his career with 3 goals and 1 assist to C.Beauvue.
Unfortunately for all their fans and coach B.Genesio, N.Fekir is injured and he won’t be able to take a part in Sunday match. Lyon are currently sitting on 6th place on Ligue 1 table, only 3 points away from repeating the success from last season when they managed to grab one of UEFA Champions League spots. If we exclude 3 – 0 loss to PSG in Coupe de France, Lyon had two perfect performances in a row. First they outplayed Bordeaux as hosts, followed with great show away from home against Angers. Both of those matches ended in Lyon’s favor with 3 – 0 score.
At one point in December, Caen were even holding second position on the table, but after decline in form and performances, they have slipped to 8th position. When it comes to their best individual this season, my vote goes to young French striker A.Delort who scored 8 goals so far, including 4 assists.
