Over 2.5 goals @ 12/25 (1.48)
There were more than 2 goals in three of Lyon's last five Ligue 1 games. The last five Ligue 1 games featuring Lyon produced eighteen goals. That data implies that Lyon records an average of 3.6 goals per match. There were three matches with more than two goals in Bordeaux's recent five encounters. We are tipping that there will be more than two goals in the clash between Lyon and Bordeaux because that result was in six of the previous ten meetings between the teams.
Both teams to score @ 41/50 (1.82)
Both teams scored in four of Lyon’s last five Ligue 1 matches. Lyon's main challenge has been defensive frailty that made it not win a single Ligue 1 match without conceding in its last five attempts. Bordeaux scored in two of its recent five Ligue 1 encounters. The visitors scored at least once in each of the last ten meetings against Lyon bar one. The only time Bordeaux failed to register a goal against Lyon was in 2020. Both teams adopted a defensive approach with fewer goal-mouth actions. We, therefore, expect both teams to get on the score sheet on 17th April 2022.
