Caen vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This season, Lyon has been showing great quality on the finishing chapter, but also a lot of weaknesses on the defensive level, so it’s not weird to see that both teams have scored in 11 of their last 14 matches.
Still, Lyon is a level above this Caen, both collectively and individually, and they are in better form, only having suffered 3 losses on their last 15 matches.
Therefore, I believe there is a lot of value in exploring Lyon to win on a match where I also expect goals from both sides.
