Lyon vs Ajaccio Predictions


Lyon have a far superior squad and should be too good for Ajaccio. I am backing Peter Bosz’s side to cover the -1 handicap in Ligue 1.

Head to Head

Lyon Form


Lyon finished eighth in Ligue 1 last season, a disappointing result. They reached the Europa League quarter-finals, going down to West Ham.

Peter Bosz’s side have had an inconsistent pre-season, the latest game resulting in a 2-2 draw against Inter Milan.

Lyon Injuries & Team News


Midfield is an issue here with Maxence Caqueret, Jeff Reine-Adélaïde and Romain Faivre injured.

Left back Henrique is suspended and will be replaced by new signing Nicolás Tagliafico.

Lyon have strengthened the squad with Corentin Tolisso joining on a free transfr and Alexandre Lacazette returning to the club.

Ajaccio Form


Ajaccio are back in Ligue 1 after a nine year absence. They finished second in Ligue 2 last season, one point above Auxerre.

Olivier Pantaloni’s side went undefeated in their final 10 matches of the season.

Ajaccio have played four pre-season friendlies, failing to score in 1-0 defeats against Caen and Paris FC.

Olivier Pantaloni has a full strength side available.

Verdict

Lyon are far stronger than Ajaccio and should be able to make it count at home. I am backing Peter Bosz’s side to cover the -1 handicap.
