Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over star-studded PSG, Olympique Lyon square off against Bordeaux at Stade Matmut-Atlantique in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Memphis Depay scored a late winner for les Gones in the triumph over the league leaders, but it has to be noted that les Parisiens were without Brazilian ace Neymar in the Ligue 1 derby. Anyhow, Lyon moved one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League and a win over Bordeaux will see them cement second position in the standings. Les Girondins did well to beat Nantes on the road in their last league fixture, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s football match against les Gones and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors, who proved their worth in the victory over Unai Emery’s troops at the weekend.
