Lyon – Besiktas Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (13.04.2017)


Prediction for Lyon – Besiktas

Win Lyon and both score @ 3.00

End of the quarter-finals of the Europa League against Lyon and Besiktas.
Bet on “Win Lyon and both score”.


Lyon are having a good season since the start of the year. Since the beginning of the year, he has played 10 home matches, having won 8 of them (1 Cup match, 2 Europa League matches and 7 League matches), highlighting several league goals but especially the 4-2 that got him to Roma (he was one of the favorites to win the Europa League) and 7-1 that endorsed him to AZ Alkmaar.

He arrived in the Europa League after being 3rd in the group stage. He won 3-0 at Dinamo Zagrev, lost 0-1 to Juve (who waged a lot of war in the 2 matches played) and drew 0 to Sevilla (dominating the match completely and being incredible that finished 0-0 (- if I had won Lyon by 2 goals, they would have passed from Ronda over Sevilla, I’m not clear what happened in case of 1-0 as they would have tied everything – unlike goals, results back and forth and Wins, draws and losses-).

It is a very offensive team with a great direct game. Surely his worst side is the defensive and is that when they are unable to materialize their plays, it is when we find their worst results, as this weekend passing in a game that lost 1-4 to a team that is fighting for the permanence. This style of play secures goals in all practically all their matches (it has 10 consecutive over 2.5 local and in 6 of them scored both teams, generally leading 16 over 2.5 in 20 games played in this 2017 – including Cup And Europa League-).

Similarly to Lyon, comes from being 3rd in the group stage Champions. Away from home in their group tied 1-1 against Benfica (in a match even), won 2-3 to Naples (being clearly superior to Naples and in a match in which the Naples missed a penalty) and losing the decisive match Before Dinamo Kiev, which ended with an incredible 6-0 (if Besiktas had won had passed to the Eighth finals, I avoided taking as relevant this game for the forecast because it was a really strange and atypical party).

We have 2 decent results, although against Naples was clearly lower, it is interesting that Benfica had plenty of opportunities to take the game (although I consider Lyon superior to Benfica, which plays in the worst league of Worse level than the French).
Still as local did not make any remarkable party. He drew 3 against Benfica in a game equalized, tied 1-1 against Naples being clearly worse and drew 1 to Dynamo Kiev being slightly worse … and we talk that the latter was the cinderella of the group.


The Besiktas in leader of the Turkish league with a advantage of 5 points on the 2nd. As a local he does not know defeat and has great numbers, however away from home (although he is still the best in his league) his numbers get worse (8V-4E-2D, 22 goals in favor and 12 goals against).

Both teams score many goals in their respective leagues, something that has been repeated during the group stage of Champions and the 2 qualifiers that have already disputed.
For me the key is both the level difference of the leagues, and that together the Lyon has shown more, making better matches in Champions and harder rivals than Besiktas. Matches that also disputed the Lyon being in a worse state of form than the present one.
The side of the goals is evident, of Lyon I expect between 2-3 goals, while Besiktas should be able to score at least 1 goal, essentially because Lyon is a team that has difficulty keeping the goal at 0 and Because the Besiktas have enough stuck enough to mark this lyon.
The part of the victory is essentially because I think Lyon are better team than Besiktas and, despite not having 1 victory in the last 5 games (1 against Roma away from home and another against PSG …) , Should make a match of quality.

If you do not want to risk I recommend both Over 2.5 and both mark, as the Over 2.5 or both individually mark (although the quotas will be lower).
