Our recommended bet for Friday’s clash at the Groupama Stadium comes in the form of a draw between Olympique Lyonnais and Toulouse, featuring a goal from Alexandre Lacazette.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £140 with Bet365.
The opening fixture of the weekend in Ligue 1 is set to see two sides in the midst of altogether contrasting spells of recent form face off at the Groupama Stadium on Friday, October 7th.
The clash in question will see Olympique Lyonnais play host to Toulouse, pitting 7th against 12th in the French top-flight.
Lyon, for their part will head into proceedings absolutely desperate for a return to winning ways. This comes with Peter Bosz’s outfit currently representing one of the most out-of-form sides in France.
Remarkably, on the back of an altogether encouraging opening to the campaign, which saw them rack up points from an available, Lyon have since been in nothing short of freefall.
Their return to action post-international break last weekend saw the one-time perennial title favourites slip to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Lens, making it, all told, four losses on the bounce.
Standing in the way of the hopes of Bosz and co. of getting things back on track this weekend? A Toulouse outfit boasting considerably more confidence.
Their own return to the pitch a week ago saw Les Violets kick things back into gear with a bang, courtesy of a four-goal haul against Montpellier.
Strikes on the part of all of Stijn Spierings, Zakaria Aboukhlal, Fares Chaibi and Brecht Dejaegere ensured that Philippe Montanier’s men climbed a full four points clear of the relegation zone, to 12th in the Ligue 1 table.
This comes owing to a stretch of two wins from three over the course of the last few weeks.
We at 101, in turn, are backing Toulouse to come away from the Groupama Stadium with a share of the spoils, despite Lyon’s evident superiority when it comes to sheer talent.
