Match Preview

The Kids welcome FC Girondins Bordeaux to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday for this Ligue 1 match. Lyon are unbeaten in seven in this head to head. However, a lot of the matches end in a draw. Four of the last seven games have ended in a stalemate including the 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture back in December.

Olympique Lyonnais come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up eight points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Gones shared the points in their last league match away to RC Strasbourg Alsace. Expected goals of 2.1 to 1.5 in favour of Lyon indicates they probably deserved more than a point from the match. It was Karl Toko Ekambi's goal a minute from full time that rescued a point for Lyon. However, Moussa Dembele’s two missed big chances should never have left them in this position to begin with. Toko Ekambi now has eight league goals this season for Lyon and is 2.05/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Their opponent on Sunday, FC Girondins Bordeaux, come into the match on a run of six away league games without a win and have failed to score in each of their last two matches on the road. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

The Girondins won their last league match at home to FC Metz. Expected goals of 2.3 to 0.3 in favour of Bordeaux indicates it was likely a fair result. Although, they took until the second half to get going. Goals from Ricardo Mangas, M'Baye Niang and Ui-jo Hwang ended an eight-game winless run for Bordeaux. The final score of the match was 3-1.

Hwang is FC Girondins Bordeaux’s top scorer with eleven goals now in Ligue 1 this season and is 3.8/1 to score against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.
