Lyon vs Ajaccio Predictions


Lyon can cruise through in the Coupe de France with a comfortable win against Ajaccio. I expect the Ligue 1 title chasers to cover the -1 handicap.

  • Lyon have won their last 4 matches (Ligue 1).
  • Lyon have won 7 of their last 9 home matches (Ligue 1).
  • Lyon have won by 2 goals in their last 2 home matches against Ajaccio (Ligue 1).

Head to Head


Lyon have a 10-2 advantage against Ajaccio with 3 draws in 15 matches. 

They last met in the 2013/14 Ligue 1 season with Lyon winning 3-1 at home. 

Lyon Form


Lyon are two points behind Lille at the top of the Ligue 1 table. They have benefitted from having no European football this season.

Rudi Garcia’s side have won four straight matches starting with a 5-0 victory at Saint-Etienne after having 18-3 shots. Les Gones then won 2-1 against Bordeaux and 1-0 at Dijon. 

Lyon’s last match was a 3-0 home win against Strasbourg on Saturday. The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 14th minute, Memphis Depay scoring twice either side of Karl Toko Ekambi.
