Olympique Lyonnais 4/9 to win against Caen in Friday’s French Ligue 1 clash
Competition: French Ligue 1
Market: Lyon to win against Caen
Odds: 4/9 @ William Hill
Olympique Lyonnais welcome Caen at the Stade des Lumières in the French Ligue 1 on Friday, and are big favourites to pick up all three points to finish the day top of the table going into the weekend’s next round of fixtures.
Lyon are currently top of Ligue 1 with three points from their opener. They kicked off the new season with a convincing 3-0 win over Nancy, and showed over the last 12 months that they are formidable on home soil. Lyon lost just three of 19 home games in the league last season, and will be full of confidence against a Caen outfit indifferent on the road.
As for the visitors, Caen are currently fourth in the division, having won their opener to Lorient. Last season, the away side finished seventh, but their achilles heel was with their results on the road. Caen suffered nine defeats in their away games in Ligue 1, and don’t have the best head-to-head record against Lyon.
In three of the last four meetings between the two sides, Lyon have come out on top. As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 4/9 for Lyon to win against Caen to stay top of Ligue 1.
