New ground will be broken on Saturday as Lyon And Glasgow Warriors meet for the first time in the European Challenge Cup.

Lyon Preview – Can TOP 14 side grab the win?

While this is the first meeting between Lyon and Glasgow in the Challenge Cup, they have met before in the Champions Cup.

The two played twice before and Lyon lost both of those in the 2018/19 pool stage.

Lyon have gone further this season than they have ever done in Europe.

A lot of their success has been on the back of a good run of home form.

Lyon have won all of their home matches in the Challenge Cup this season.

They didn’t concede more than 17 points in any of them.

In the last round, they knocked over English Premiership side Worcester Warriors 31-17.

In the match outright for rugby betting, the win for Lyon is at 1/4* (odds recorded 19:18 GMT on May 6th, 2022 at Betfair)

Can they make the most of home soil once again?

Our betting prediction:
Lyon 8-14 winning margin

The current form of Lyon is interesting as they have won their last three in all competitions.

That was after losing four of their previous five.

Lyon were struggling badly to put points on the board during that slump of form.

Their home form is not to be messed with, however.

They are W9 L1 in their last ten matches on home turf.

But Lyon have won only one of their previous four home fixtures against Scottish opponents in Europe.


Glasgow Warriors Preview – Warriors to win in France?

This looks like a tricky road match for Glasgow Warriors who have slipped out of form.

They have lost their last two matches, United Rugby Championship losses against the Stormers and Bulls.

In their last seven first-team matches, Glasgow are W3 L4.

Glasgow Warriors are a quote of 3/1 in rugby betting for Saturday* (odds recorded 19:18 GMT on May 6th, 2022 at Betfair)

In the last round of action in the Challenge Cup, Glasgow won away at Newcastle Falcons.

That was after falling from the pool stage of the Championship Cup.

The Warriors finished with just five points from their four matches there.

So it has not been a great season for them in Europe.

Glasgow did face French opposition in the Pool stage of the Champions Cup this season, losing both matches against La Rochelle.

Glasgow Warriors have won four of their last five matches against TOP 14 opposition in this tournament.

The one loss in that sequence however was on the road.

It happened last season on a visit to Montpellier, Glasgow losing 26-21.

This is the fourth European quarter-final appearance by Glasgow Warriors.

They lost their previous three, all against Saracens.

With seven losses in their last nine road games in all competitions, this is tough for Glasgow.


Lyon vs Glasgow Warriors Betting Advice

Lyon should be the stronger of the two sides at the end of the day, their challenge bolstered by home turf.

They have been in superb form on home soil this season and can book their first European semi-final spot.

The first rugby betting tip is Lyon -9 handicap at 10/11* (odds recorded 19:18 GMT on May 6th, 2022 at Betfair).


Key Facts – Lyon vs Glasgow Warriors Betting Tip

  • Lyon have won all Challenge Cup home matches this season
  • Lyon have not conceded more than 17 points at home in this season’s tournament
  • Glasgow Warriors won both previous meetings with Lyon (Champions Cup)


The road form this season from the Glasgow Warriors just hasn’t been up to par.

Certainly not enough to expect them to go to a TOP 14 club in the quarter-finals of a European tournament and land the win.

The home side’s defence has been good, so the Lyon to win by an 8-14 margin is the second rugby betting tip at 11/4* (odds recorded 19:18 GMT on May 6th, 2022 at Betfair).
