With this match against Bastia from Saturday 16th, Lyon are looking forward to recovering from the dramatic defeat suffered in front of Ajaccio last month (1-3), when the football star Adrian Mutu scored his first two goals of the season. Since that failure, the team hasn’t managed to keep a positive course, and therefore, the men of Rémi Garde have registered only 2 successes in the last 5 games Moreover, there were two times when they simply haven’t managed to win , once with Lille (1-3) and the other time with Marseille (0-0)
All these few failures had immediate repercussions on the charts: from now on, PSG can count on 5 points beforehand in their race to the title, and why not, they could even hope for a ticket to the Champions League. They are now leading the charts of Ligue 1 with 57 points, while Lyon are following with 53.
On the other hand, Bastia are not to be feared. They have only 5 points from a maximum of 24, and are only 3 steps ahead on the red zone. Therefore, in this Bastia – Lyon prediction, I don’t anticipate that Lyon would decade so much to let themselves be defeated once again, this time by a much weaker team. So I will place 7 units on Lyon at 2.10. I used the odds from Betfair.
