Betting Tips for the game
Lyon have endured a mixed run of form in pre-season, registering three wins, three defeats and one draw in seven friendlies. They have been involved in the International Champions Cup in this term, but only managed a 3-2 win over Benfica, while losing at the hands of Inter and Chelsea. The good news is that Lyon were the 4th best home team in the league last season, having lost just two of their 19 games.
Meanwhile, Amiens have only played three friendlies this summer, recording a draw, a win and a defeat in the process. Overall, Amiens have suffered just four defeats in their last 15 games across all competitions. The negative thing is that Amiens have won just four of their 19 away games in Ligue 1 last season.
Lyon hold a perfect head-to-head record against Amiens, and we fancy them to secure another comfortable win here. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate the Asian Handicap -1.5 on Lyon at odds 1.67.
