Lyon comes from a disappointing draw against Marseille ,I say disappointing because they were winning 1-0 and playing against 10 players, Alessandrini was expelled..still Marseille made the 1-1 draw after a corner header by Marseilles highest central defender Rekik.
With 10 or 11 players, Marseille is a top team, very difficult to overcome in their own turf, so that draw is a good result.
Lyon showed that their good form is coming back, mainly because Valbuena is playing in very high level, in a 4-4-2 system, the number 19 is crucial for Lyon performance, he makes the connection between midfield and attack and hes becoming that “8” that lyon needs to balance the team.
Lyon played very well against a top team like Marseille and is showing a very interesting raise of form, with Lacazette on the team in good level I think that we can say that the bad start in league 1 is over.
Lyon as 9 points,7-3 in goal difference and no wins in their own home. Scores few goals(1.15) and receives even fewer(0.5).
Bastia comes in the 15th position, with 7 points and record of 1.8 goals suffered lost the last game against nice at home by 3-1,showing big difficulties in every sector, no wonder that they have 3 straight loses in league 1.A very bad moment for Bastia and the end of this bad moment is still to come, Lyon is not the best club at this point to make the desirable comeback.
With big gap of quality and the pressure of first win at home I think Lyon will win this one easily and I hope they can deliver,so my choice goes for Lyon -1.5 A.H
The straight win at 1.47 as huge value,but i will stretch it to -1.5
