AS Roma – Lyon Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (16.03.2017)


Prediction for AS Roma – Lyon

Roma or tie and both mark @ 1.80

We are going with this match of return of the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League that will face the Italian Rome and the Olympique de Lyon French in Italian territory.

AS Roma

Roma were one of the clear favorites to win the Europa League before the first leg, they have the need to win and at home they are proving very solvent this season. In Serie A accumulate a balance like local of 12 victories and 1 defeat. This defeat was in their last home game against Naples 1-2, so with these numbers as local, I hope they at least do not lose a second consecutive game in their own stadium.

In the group stage of the Europa League, in the 3 games played by Roma as a local we have 2 hits for this forecast. It was not just against the weak Astra who managed to thrash 4-0. While against the Plzen they won by 4-1 and against Austria of Vienna the result was 3-3.

On the other hand the Italians will have to risk and Lyon is also a good team and in this situation I hope that at least the French can score a goal in the Olympic taking advantage of some contract.

The results of Lyon as visitors are not being too good in recent days as they accumulate 4 games without winning in this condition in the French Ligue1. In these 4 games we had 3 hits for this forecast as Lyon only went unmarked against St. Ettiene with which they lost 2-0.

In the rest of Lyon’s recent away games, they lost 3-2 to Caen, lost 2-1 to Guingamp and in their last away game the result was 1-1 against Girondins.


This encounter is played after playing the first leg in France in which Lyon won the lead in the tie in a crazy match that ended 4-2 in favor of the French.

We go with this bet in which we need both teams to score at least one goal combined with La Roma not lose this match. The share of both marks is in most bookies around 1.4 (specifically bet365 to 1.44 share) and thus including a risk factor plus 1X we leave in this good quota 1.8 .

And is that I do not understand too well how they have put the odds of betfair in this market, we have the double chance X2 normal pay betfair to share 2.05 and in this market continue to pay 2.05 share the visitor or tie and Both mark (there is no increase of any fee for the addition of both teams mark).

However the normal 1X pay betfair only to 1.16 share and thus adding the both tick can we get to this 1.8 share. To say that the favorite according to the bookies to win the match is Rome itself with a share to its simple victory that does not exceed 1.7 in any of the most popular bookmakers.

If we combine the quota of both bet365 with the one of the 1X of this same house, we would give a 1.71 share so that this 1.8 that offers betfair and you will see the value.
