    Lyon to bounce back to winning ways at Amiens

    Lyon started the new French Ligue One campaign in good form by winning their opening two matches. Since then, OL have suffered a defeat against Montpellier and last time out drew 1-1 on home soil against Bordeaux.

    Lyon will look to get back to winning ways on Friday night when they visit Amiens at Stade Crédit Agricole de la Licorne.

    Amiens kick-off this game in the relegation play-off spot after picking up just three points from their last four Ligue One outings. Last time out in the French top-flight Amiens suffered a 2-0 defeat at Toulouse.

    The loss was their third defeat in four league matches in Ligue One. Their poor defensive displays have led to them conceding at least two goals in all three league defeats this season.

    Amiens have been tough opposition on home soil in the French top-flight of late, as they have suffered just one loss in ten Ligue One outings at home. In fact, a 2-1 loss against Nantes in their most recent home match ended a nine-game unbeaten home run.

    Lyon will be looking for a return to their opening season form when they recorded two comfortable victories over Monaco and Angers. This season has rather summed up Lyon in recent campaigns, in that they can produce top performances, but they have a tendency to slip up in unexpected circumstances.

    The visitors have a decent recent record on their travels in Ligue One, as they have recorded four wins from their last five away games, scoring at least three goals in all four victories. The aforementioned 1-0 defeat at Montpellier ended their four-game winning run on their travels.

    The recent history of this fixture is on Lyon’s side, as OL have won the last six matches between the two teams in all competitions.

    Forebet predicts that Lyon will continue their good run of form against Amiens and record a victory in a low-scoring encounter.
