Lyon will be aiming to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they make the trip to the Stade Michel d’Ornano to take on Caen on Saturday afternoon. Caen did well to secure a 2-0 victory on the road at Dijon last time out, thanks to goals from Enzo Crivelli and Claudio Beauvue. On the contrary, Lyon have suffered a disappointing 0-1 home loss at the hands of Nice, in a game in which they had a ridiculous tally of 29 shots (both off and on target). Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Caen were beaten 3-0 on the road at PSG on the opening round, but they managed to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track since then. They have recorded two consecutive draws against Nice and Nantes, along with a 0-2 victory at Dijon a fortnight ago. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Lyon have been alternating victories with defeats in this early part of the season, registering two wins and two defeats in their opening four Ligue 1 games. This leaves Lyon only 8th in the standings, tied on six points with other three teams and one point clear of the top four. The most worrying thing is that Lyon have won just one game in their last seven trips.
Although Lyon haven’t been at their best in Ligue 1 so far this season, they should be able to grab all three points in this one. Our betting tips and predictions fancies Lyon to win at odds 1.72.

Correct Score odds
Caen have found the back of the net at least once in each of their last four fixtures. On the flip side, Lyon have only scored in two of their four league outings in this early part of this Ligue 1 season. The positive thing is that Lyon have kept two clean sheets in the process. Our correct score would back Lyon to win 1-0 at odds 7.00.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Each of Lyon’s opening four games in Ligue 1 have seen few than three goals. Meanwhile, Caen’s most recent three league fixtures have ended with under 2.5 goals. Furthermore, the most recent two meetings between these two sides have ended with the 1-0 scoreline. Our total goals prediction anticipate under 2.5 goals at odds 1.95.

First Goalscorer odds
Bernard Traore is Lyon’s top scorer at the moment with two goals under his belt after four league appearances. However, the 23-year-old striker is injured and he will definitely miss this game. With Mariano Diaz now back to Real Madrid, it means that our choice for the first goalscorer here is Memphis Depay. Our first goalscorer prediction is Memphis Depay at odds 4.75.
