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.
