Lyon to Win

It's clear that Lyon has been far from the team we used them to be this season, but they are still in the top half of the standings, even with their poor form recently in which they only won once in the last six games.

However, Ajaccio is in the relegation zone at the moment and they lost three games in a row, so we can still see Lyon come out on top of them in this match and get three points.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams only met twice recently, but both of their head-to-head games have gone over 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case on Sunday as well.

On top of that, Ajaccio averaged 2.63 goals per game in the league this season, while Lyon averaged 2.68 goals per game in Ligue 1 so far. So, our prediction sounds pretty reasonable based on all the stats.

Ajaccio vs Lyon Preview – News, Injuries, Form, and Possible Lineups

Read all of the injury updates and team news for Sunday's Ligue 1 meeting between Lyon and Ajaccio below.

Ajaccio

After doing well for a while in Ligue 1, Ajaccio is once again on a poor run as they have lost three games in a row now. Due to this bad run, Ajaccio is currently in the relegation zone with fifteen points from nineteen matches. On the bright side, a few teams outside of the relegation zone are just a few points ahead, so there's still plenty of time and hope for Ajaccio to survive in the top flight.

That being said, Ajaccio is struggling with injuries at the moment. Vincent Marchetti, Romain Hamouma, Yoann Touzghar, Youssouf Kone, Mathieu Coutadeur, Kevin Spadanuda, and Mickael Barreto are all on the sidelines with injuries right now.

Ajaccio Predicted Lineup:

Leroy – Youssouf, Mayembo, Gonzalez, Diallo – Nouri, Belaili, Mangani, Chabrolle – El Idrissy, Bayala

Lyon Predicted Lineup

It's been a rough season for Lyon so far as the team has just 25 points from 19 games. This is barely enough to put them in the top half of the standings and they are twelve points behind places that lead to Europe next season. On top of that, Lyon has just one win in the last six games in Ligue 1, so they need to do much better in the future if they want to join the top teams.

On the bright side, only Julian Pollersbeck is currently on the team's injury list, while the rest of the squad is in good shape.

Lyon Predicted Lineup:

Lopes – Diomande, Lovren, Lukeba, Gusto – Cherki, Tolisso, Mendes – Tagliafico, Dembele, Lacazette

Ligue 1 Standings

Player to Watch: Alexandre Lacazette

Since we can see Lyon winning this game, we decided to go with one of their players as the player to watch and our choice is Alexandre Lacazette, the experienced striker who's once again having a good season at the club.

After all, Lacazette scored eleven goals and added four assists in nineteen matches in Ligue 1 this season, putting him just two goals behind Mbappe in the race for the top scorer in the league.
