Lyon vs. Bordeaux Match Analysis and Prediction

Lyon has a golden chance to come on top of the Ligue 1 standings this week as they welcome home an in-form Bordeaux. The match schedules for Friday at Gewiss Stadium, with a kickoff at 11 pm.

The hosts thrashed local rivals Saint Etienne 5-0 in their last outing. On the other hand, Bordeaux extended their winning run to three matches after a 2-1 win over Angers.

The 122nd Derby du Rhone did not live up to the full hype as a full fit Lyon side thrashed an Etienne side that faced a major coronavirus outbreak.

Les Verts welcomed several first-team players to their squad, but they proved no match for Rudi Garcia’s men. Les Gones only managed to pick one point from their previous games against Rennes and Metz.

Lyon is currently third on the table below Lille and PSG, who are now on a three-match winning streak. This Friday, a win will see the side rise to the summit before PSG and Lille take on Lorient and Dijon, respectively, on Sunday.

Despite suffering a home defeat to Metz late last week, Garcia took maximum points from five of their previous six matches on home soil. In each of the games, the side-notched two goals each time. However, they come against an in-form Bordeaux side with a strong defensive record.
