Lyon – Sochaux [Prediction]

The last Ligue 1 match of this round is taking place on Sunday night, between Lyon and Sochaux. Lyon is the clear favorite of the game, and their victory is best awarded at William Hill, which offers odds of 1.50.

Lyon have been through a difficult time after the elimination from Europa League. The hosts have only 2 points won in the last 3 rounds of Ligue 1, and for the moment have lost contact with leaders PSG. Still, the team remains on the 2nd position with 53 points gained in all 29 rounds, and also with a very good goal average of 48 to 30. Until now they have established good results at home, imposing themselves in 9 of the 14 games, and only losing twice.

On the other hand, Sochaux can’t afford to aim too high. The guests are currently on the 18th position on the Ligue 1 chart after 29 rounds in which they collected only 28 points. Also, they have a very poor goal average of 30 to 46. Moreover, in this moment they are struggling to remain afloat, since they are only one point above the red line. The 14 times they had to play as guests in this championship, Sochaux have won only 2 times, and 4 out of the latest 5 matches disputed on foreign land, were lost.

In the last two years, these teams have met 4 times. Lyon imposed themselves 2 times, Sochaux one time and the other match ended in a 1-1 draw.

I think there shouldn’t be any doubt about who is going to win the match from Sunday. While Lyon are still fighting for the championship title, Sochaux are struggling hard to remain above the red line, without too many hopes. In addition, Lyon have the big advantage of playing at home. So I will bet 10 units on Lyon’s victory at 1.50. The odds were used from William Hill.
