Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Lyon will look to make a flying start to the new Ligue 1 campaign when they host Ajaccio to their Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Friday evening. Les Gones did well to hold star-studded Inter to a 2-2 draw in their last warm-up game, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Ajaccio. It has to be noted that the club chiefs have added the likes of Johann Lepenant, Nicolas Tagliafico, Alexandre Lacazette, and Corentin Tolisso to the squad in the summer transfer window.
Defender Henrique is banned for the season opener. Ajaccio, on the other hand, aim to impress on their return to the French top flight, but seeing that Lyon are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that underdogs are capable of grabbing something from Friday’s clash. There are no injury worries in the away team.
