Olympique Lyonnais hosts Strasbourg
Olympique Lyonnais hosts Strasbourg in a match from the third round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s take a look at this clash in our vip soccer predictions today.
Olympique Lyonnais started the new campaign in France with a win against Amiens, but this was followed by a dissapointing 0-1 loss during the visit to Reims. Pablo Chavarria scored the only goal in the game in the 32th minutes. Lyonnais tried to fight back, but Bertrand Traore, Memphis Depay and Mariano Diaz were shut down very well by Reims’ defense. Far from expected, Lyonnais suffered their first loss for the new season.
Bruno Genesio’s team did a lot better against Amiens in the first round. Bertrand Traore and Memphis Depay scored the two goals for the winning side, which is motivated once again to qualify for the Champions League this season. The competition is going to be pretty big, so Lyonnais shall avoid losing points like this.
Strasbourg kicked off the new campaign a little bit better – with 4 points from the first two games. Thierry Laurey’s boys also started the season with a win, beating Bordeaux with 2-0 away from home. Ibrahima Sissoko and Nuno Da Costa scored the two goals for the winning team. In the next match Strasbourg made a 1-1 draw at home against Saint-Etienne. Anthony Goncalves gave the home team the lead, but Saint-Etienne’s Makhtar Gueye equalized just two minutes before the end. It was heartbreaking for Strasbourg to miss the three points like this, but this is what happens when you lose your concentration in the last few minutes of the match.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Ligue 1 game between Olympique Lyonnais and Strasbourg. We believe that Lyonnais are favourites here, but let’s see how the loss against Reims is going to affect them.
