Ajax v Lyon Betting Tips: Visitors defensive frailties to be exposed

This semi-final first leg provides hosts Ajax with an excellent opportunity to put themselves in a strong position ahead of their trip to France. Lyon, for all their attacking qualities, are a side who’ve shown numerous defensive weaknesses in recent weeks and the Dutch side are fancied to take advantage. Home is most certainly where the heart is for Ajax while Lyon have found life on the road tricky of late; the Dutch outfit come into this fixture in imperious form on their own patch having won each of their last ten fixtures, whereas Lyon’s away form, with just three…

Angers v Lyon Betting Tips: Visitors won’t have it all their own way

After both losing last time out, this pair will be looking to get things back on track as they face off on Friday night, but only one of them makes any appeal with the betting the way it is. Having somewhat unluckily come up short against Ligue’s 1’s two biggest hitters in PSG and Monaco in recent weeks, Angers are finally fancied to get a decent result against one of the division’s top five. Lyon have shown in recent weeks that they’re far from infallible and, with one eye likely on the Europa League, look somewhat overpriced ahead of this…

Besiktas v Lyon Betting Tips: Turkish side not to be underestimated on home soil

This Europa League tie is teetering on a knife edge and, although Lyon won the first-leg, Besiktas scored that crucial away goal. Besiktas have had a week off since the defeat against Lyon last Thursday, their first since 10th February. Besiktas are five points clear at the top of the table and, despite that first leg loss, things are looking pretty good. Senol Gunes’s side certainly focus on the attacking side of the game and are the top scorers in the Turkish Super Lig with 54 in 27 games. Additionally, they have scored in 12 out of their last 13…

AS Roma v Lyon Betting Tips: Yet more goals fancied at Stadio Olimpico

When the draw was made for the last-16 of the Europa League, this clash was one of the more mouth-watering ones and the first leg certainly lived up to it as Lyon came out on top in a six-goal thriller. Roma were 2-1 up at half time in the first-leg and will really feel they should have closed the game out, however, they are now in a real fight and require two goals without reply if they hope to go through. The 4-2 loss had made it three losses on the bounce for Roma but they managed to kick-start again…

Lyon v AS Roma Betting Tips: Italian side to flex their muscles

These two teams have ambitions of competing in the Champions League on a regular basis as well as challenging bigger clubs in their domestic league for honours. However, such ambitions can be put on hold as the Europa League is their best chance of claiming silverware this season. Although Lyon are on a good run at the moment with no defeats in their last five in all competitions, winning four of them, they are well off the pace in the French league and are 15 points off Nice in 3rd place. Defence has certainly been the main problem for Bruno…

Lyon – Monaco. Laure James’ prediction

This is the game nobody wants to miss! Lyon and Monaco go head to head to fight for second place, and an automatic ticket to the Champions League. Monaco will be using one of their biggest threats, the counter-attack, but Lyon will be well drilled on how to handle this. Lyon are also definitely a much stronger side now than at the start of the campaign, and their success is borne from a convincing, confident turnaround, leaving them the envy of everyone in the league, besides champions Paris Saint Germain. Monaco will let them have the ball, they just have…

PSG – Lyon. Laure James’ prediction

I think this has a Paris Saint-Germain win written all over it. Unbeaten, PSG are 15 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and topped off a solid Champions League group stage with a 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, on Tuesday. Lyon meanwhile are out of the European competition, and even though they’re something of a bogey side for PSG, who haven’t won in their last three meetings, the champions will be well drilled. I simply think they’re the stronger team. Indeed, Lyon’s fifth-place position in the league could be read as flattering. Some team news: Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette…

Lyon have got nothing to play for anymore. They’ve got lots of problems. At the same time, the match against Barcelona restored Valencia’s pride. Valencia will depend on the game between Zenit and Gent. I think Valencia will do their part easily, winning with more than one goal gap. So, let’s go with (-1) handicap on Valencia, it’s 2.20 at Ladbrokes.
