Lyon is coming here after a pretty one-sided clash on the road to St Etienne when they completely outplayed them with a convincing 0:5 victory.
Lyon was in complete control over the clash from the very start, not putting their victory in question at any moment. They scored two goals in the first part, and as many as three in the second, thus continued their three matches winning streak in Ligue 1, against almost desperate hosts.
They improved their ranking, currently being at 3rd spot on the table, having only two points less than leaders from Paris.
Midfielder Aouar (16/3) should be only absentee for the hosts.
Bordeaux also, caught up with a good rhythm lately, currently being on three matches winning momentum, last time out at home against Angers with a 2:1 result.
They started the match furiously, taking the double lead already after eleven minutes of play, both score via Hwang. The guests did respond with a goal in the 39th, and even though they were a more dominant side for the rest of the encounter, Bordeaux managed to withstand the pressure and took all three.
They are at 7th place in the overall rankings, being four points in deficit compared to the European-placed Rennes.
Midfielders Zerkane (14/0) and Otavio (18/1) are injured and out for the guests.
Why stop now?
Lyon had some fluctuations in their play prior to their latest clash, but they are slowly but surely moving to the top, where they belong. Carried by their latest convincing victory, I am positive that they won’t make a setback in the upcoming clash against Bordeaux, but the guests are likely to show their potential as well.
After all, the visitors proved that they are more than capable to be dangerous in the attack, but with very few chances against in-form Lyon overall.
