Bet: Both Teams to Score

The sports betting companies expected Lyon to qualify for the Champions League playoff, but Frenchmen haven’t got past the group stage, yielding the first 2 positions to Juventus and Sevilla. However, Genesio’s side are now on the good run of form with 4 wins and a draw in the last 5 matches in all competitions. In the previous round of the Europa League playoff the Frenchmen have met betting experts’ expectations and violently thrashed AZ (11-2).

As it was predicted by the sports betting advisors Roma were Juventus’ main opponent in the championship race. However, the recent home loss to Napoli (1-2) held them away from Juve and jeopardized their second position as the Napolitans managed to get too close. Besides, Spalletti’s team were beaten in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final by their most hated rival Lazio (0-2). So the betting experts believe Roma could have lost their confidence.

Before choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Lyon have scored 21 goals in their last 5 games in all competitions. At the same time, Roma are also able to bring their scoring power to the party as they were effective before this recent slump in the results. The betting experts make us pay attention to the fact that Roma will miss injured Florenzi and suspended Rudiger, while Genesio’s team don’t have major selection concerns.

The bookmakers think it’s a battle of the equal opponents, but the small preference is given to the hosts: Lyon – 2,50, Draw – 3,40, Roma – 2,90. However, Roma’s overall chances to go through are estimated higher: 2,45 against 1,55. As both teams score a lot, it is recommended to bet on “Both Teams to Score” (1,55) in the first leg. Besides, you can bet on “Total Goals over 2,5” (1,64). Finally you can choose “Lyon, Draw – no Bet” (1,77).
