Bastia vs Lyon Prediction 16 April 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Armand Cesari Stadium
Match date: 16.04.2017 at 16:00

On April 16 2017 at 16:00 at the Armand Cesari Stadium the local Bastia play against Lyon in the regular game of the 33rd matchday of the French Ligue 1.

The victory against Dijon in the previous game 1:2 let Bastia get back to the race for staying in the national elite division after the end of the current season. Today, after 32 matches played they are 3 points below the safe 17th position. Moreover, that victory in the last match was the first one they had since December 17 last year. Bastia show horrible results and no one can deny it, yet, even though they only won three games of their 16 home matches played, they still drew in eight of them.

As for yon, they have the best results of goals scored in the current season of the French Ligue 1 at the moment as they have already scored 65 goals in their 32 matches played. Anyway, they are pretty unstable in defense and this fact doesn’t’ let them make it to the top three of the league. It’s clear now the Lyon won’t be able to get higher than the fourth position and now they are actually in the race for it.

The history of the games played between the teams shows the advantage of Lyon, in fact. Moreover, Lyon have already outplayed Bastia in the current season as they played in the first round game of the national elite division. Bastia have a few advantages as they are playing at home and they will have more time to prepare for the match as Lyon will have to play against Besiktas in the Europa League. Yet, we don’t think that those advantages will let them outplay Lyon or at least to avoid a loss in the match against them.
