      Analysis: Saint-Étienne vs Olympique Lyonnais (17 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: January 15 2016, 18:44 »

      Saint‑Étienne and Olympique Lyonnais face at Stade Geoffroy‑Guichard, in a match for the 21th round of the Ligue 1. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 08‑11‑2015, Olympique Lyonnais got a home win by (3‑0). At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 5 wins and 1 loss in the last 6 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 30‑11‑2014, in a match for the Ligue 1, Saint‑Étienne won by (3‑0). The goals of the match were scored by M. Bayal Sall (18' ), R. van Wolfswinkel (40' ) and R. Cohade (68' ) for Saint‑Étienne. Although this is a match between 7th and 6th of the league table, it’s actually a match between the 2nd best in home matches and the 8th best in away matches.

      Analysis of Saint-Étienne

      The home team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 29 points won, after 9 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Angers, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Nantes, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually plays better at home, where they have won 20 points, against only 9 points in away matches. In the last 10 home league matches Saint‑Étienne has a record of 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 20 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 10 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 9 of the last 10 for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 20 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 home matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 9 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

      Saint-Étienne comes to this match after a 2-1 win over Nantes. The home team prefers long passes directly towards the forwards and in counterattack, making good use of the quality of Hamouma and Roux in these transitions. Hamouma is the best scorer of the team, with 8 goals. Coach Christophe Galtier cannot count on Perrin, Diomande, Clerc, Pajot, Bahebeck, Beric and Karamoko, all injured.

      Analysis of Lyon

      The away team is currently in the 6th position of the league, with 29 points won, after 8 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Gazélec Ajaccio, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Troyes, by (4‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, with 16 goals scored and 9 goals conceded at home, against 11 goals scored and 15 conceded in away matches. In their last match, for the Coupe de la Ligue, they got an away loss against PSG by (2‑1). In the last 10 away league matches Olympique Lyonnais has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 30 possible. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Lyon comes to this match after a 2-1 win over PSG, so they have been eliminated from the League Cup. The goal of the team is to start winning again, so coach Bruno Génésio should present an offensive strategy. In front should be Lacazette, the best scorer of the team, with 9 goals scored. Recovering from injuries are Gonalons, Fofana, Fekir, Bedimo, Rafael and Valbuena.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that both teams will score. Due to the offensive quality, as well as their defensive weaknesses, the tendency is that the forwards may win the duels against the defenders and score. Moreover, both teams have scored regularly in the last matches.
