Olympique Lyonnais - Lorient betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 08/05/2021 played @ Groupama Stadium refereed by Mikael Lesage

Olympique Lyonnais are likely on their way to a decisive victory, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about the visitors’ prospects. Bookmakers are pricing a home win at 1.38, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

Lorient stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 8.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The odds seemed to be stacked against Olympique Lyonnais in the previous round at Monaco , but they managed to pull a surprise in a big way. They were losing at half-time against a much stronger opposition, but an excellent performance in the second half netted them 3 points and a stunning 2:3 victory.

Lorient gave the fans at their home stadium quite a show in their previous game against Angers SCO, snagging a decisive 2:0 victory. The victory itself was somewhat predictable, but the first-half lead and notable lead speaks volumes about their form.

With more than 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 fixtures, Olympique Lyonnais’s performance leaves something to be desired. That said, savvy punters could be able to exploit this – think BTTS or Over 5 Goals markets, for example.

Looking over the visitors’ record in away games, it seems they don’t do well when they’re out of the comfort of their home field. They’ve recorded a worrying number of conceded goals in their previous 3 away games – more than 5, to be more precise.

The hosts are currently number 4th in the standings, which is likely their final placement for the season. Such a result will send them to the Europa League, and the chances of the standings changing substantially are quite slim.

If there’s one thing to note about the history of this matchup, it’s a fact their matches tend to end in a draw. Several matches this season ended inconclusively, so it neems neither team is able to reliably tip the scales one way or another.

Despite being seen as underdogs by most online bookmakers, the visiting team will be able to give their all this Saturday. They have no reported injuries or suspensions going in, so at least they’ll be able to rely on their best players and strategies.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 1.48, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.
