There’s also action from the French top flight on Sunday evening when Lyon play host to Saint-Etienne as the betting tips continue at the Groupama Stadium.

Lyon Preview – Can Lyon build on Juventus victory?

An impressive 1-0 home win against Juventus in midweek in the 1st leg of their Champions League clash against the Italian champions will have been a massive boost for Lyon and the hosts will now be looking to transfer that result into this domestic Ligue 1 clash against lowly Saint-Etienne as the hosts once again enjoy home advantage at their Groupama Stadium.

On the domestic front, Lyon ended a run of 4 matches without a win in Ligue 1 last time out when they registered a much-needed 2-0 win away from home at Metz, but overall, it’s been a pretty ordinary domestic top flight campaign for the hosts to date.

Lyon occupy a disappointing 9th place on the Ligue 1 ladder and possess an indifferent looking home record which stands at 4-4-4 15/7 but results seem to have slowly turned in their favour in recent weeks as they’re unbeaten in their last 3 matches on home turf.

Back-to-back draws with Amiens and Strasbourg followed a rousing 3-0 win against Toulouse.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Saint-Etienne Preview – Can Saint-Etienne find a win from anywhere?

The visitors seem to stand a good a chance as any in their bid to end a dismal run of 5 matches without a win in Ligue 1 when they make their way to Lyon for this Sunday evening clash, knowing that their hosts have expended energy in their 1-0 win against Juventus in midweek.

However, Saint-Etienne’s backyard hasn’t exactly been kept in order either as the visitors have suffered 4 defeats from their last 5 matches in the French top flight, following losses to Metz, Marseille, Montpellier and Brest, and indeed the bigger picture paints an even worse outlook.

Saint-Etienne have managed to win just 1 of their last 10 matches overall in Ligue 1 and this poor sequence of results includes no fewer than 8 defeats, so the chances of an away win here at Lyon seem highly improbable.

Combine this with Saint-Etienne losing their last 6 away matches on the trot and you’ll see why Lyon should record a home win here today.
