Olympique Lyonnais vs Bordeaux – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 29.1.2021)

H2H: Lyon vs Bordeaux – Comparison.

Memphis Depay has scored Lyon’s opening goal in each of his eight goalscoring L1 matches this campaign. The battle to see who will score first could also involve Hwang Ui-jo, as he has netted the game’s opener in Bordeaux’ previous two league matches. Lyon have been shown one red card in all but one of the last four top-flight H2Hs held here.

Lyon Insights.

Sitting just outside the Ligue 1 (L1) top two, Lyon have experienced a recent dip in form after just one win from their last three league matches. As ever, starting well will be a priority, especially as they are the only side to have won 100% of their league fixtures (of ten) in which they’ve scored first this campaign. Even if Lyon concede first, they should have sufficient character to recover, notably rescuing a joint-league best 1.60 points on average when shipping the opener at home this L1 campaign (W2, D2, L1). Another good omen lies with the fact that Lyon are unbeaten across their last eight L1 home games played on a Friday (W6, D2).

Bordeaux Insights.

A return of just one loss from Bordeaux’s previous six L1 outings (W4, D1, L1) has taken them closer to the Europa League playoff spot. To optimise their chances of a fourth consecutive league win for the first time since May 2018, they should avoid conceding first, having lost every fixture (of seven) in which they’ve conceded the opener this season. The visitors will be looking to extend their run of three L1 away clean sheets (W2, D1), and notably, a fourth shutout would mark their longest such run since February 2006! Like their hosts, Bordeaux will be keen for a good start, considering they have won the three away league games in which they led at HT.
