Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction One – Lyon to win – 1.40.

Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction Two – Lyon goals handicap (-1.5) – 2.10.

Lyon to win

Lyon are one of the strongest teams in the league and seems destined to place in the top half of the table this season. Meanwhile, the newly promoted Ajaccio will play their first Ligue 1 match after eight years.

We believe that the hosts will claim victory in this encounter.

Lyon goals handicap (-1.5)

Peter Bosz’s side has a solid attacking lineup. The French forward Alexandre Lacazette has returned to his boyhood club five years after leaving for Arsenal. Meanwhile, wingers Toko Ekambi and Tete have impressed during the pre-season friendlies.

In effect, we expect a very attacking-minded tactic by Bosz will see couple of goals in this match.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Lyon vs Ajaccio

Lyon finished the previous season in the eighth position and failed to qualify for European football.

Les Gones will have more time to concentrate on Ligue 1 and Coupe de France this season.

Meanwhile, during the summer break, Lyon had 9 pre-season friendlies, registering 4 wins, 3 losses, and one draw. The last friendly was against FC Inter, which ended in a draw 2:2. The French side had two goals advantage but failed to keep the score.

On the other hand, Ligue 1 is back to Corsica after Ajaccio won promotion to return to the French top division after an absence of eight years.

Meanwhile, L’ours were in second place in the Ligue 2, four points behind champions Toulouse FC and a point clear of Auxerre in third.

Ajaccio played out four pre-season friendlies, earning just one victory (D1, L2).
