On the upcoming Sunday, Caen and Lyon will play against each other within the 16th round of the French championship. Both teams have started the season well and are going in the upper part of the Ligue 1 tournament table. But the future opponents are approaching the upcoming game in a different mood, Caen managed to bring one point from Strasbourg last mid-week while Olympique sensationally lost to at their home ground to Lille with a score of 1:2.
Caen lost once within the last five games with two draws and two defeats. The splits of points were registered with Nice and Strasbourg, the loss against Marseille, the victories over Troy and Bordeaux. Caen are on the sixth position in the French Ligue 1 table, the future hosts have 23 points in the asset, four points behind Monaco and a spot in the Europa League.
Lyon are fighting for a second position in the championship which gives the right to play in the Champions League in the future season. Les Gones are on the third position with 29 points after 15 rounds, losing two points to Marseille, which are second. Monaco also have 29 points, the Monegasques are on the fourth place as they are losing to Lyon by secondary indicators. Lyon have had eight away matches within the current season of Ligue 1, in which they have five victories with two draws and one defeat.
Lyon are coming to Caen for a satisfaction, Les Gones lost their second place in the peloton after the loss against Lille and will now do everything possible to retrieve the loss. Caen are a very decent and perspective team but the future hosts aren’t a threat for today’s Lyon, although Caen play well at their home ground.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win
