Lyon vs Ajaccio – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Newly promoted Ajaccio face a tough test on the opening day of the Ligue 1 season when they visit Lyon on Friday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Half Time/Full Time – Lyon/Lyon

Lyon finished in a hugely disappointing 8th place last term, though Les Gones have a chance to start the new campaign with a bang against newly promoted Ajaccio on Friday. Lyon did some excellent business in the summer, bringing Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso back to the club and they look ready to make a strong start. Ajaccio could find their hosts too hot to handle and a stake on Lyon to be leading both at half and at full time appeals at the prices on offer.

Alexandre Lacazette to Score Anytime

Alexandre Lacazette spent eight prolific years with Lyon before moving to Arsenal in 2017 and now that he is back at his hometown club, the 31-year-old should be able to reignite his career. Lacazette found the net in each of Lyon’s last two warmup fixtures and he looks primed to hit the ground running against Ajaccio on Friday. As such, the lethal finisher is worth backing in the anytime scorers market.
