Olympique Lyon vs Valenciennes Prediction, Betting Tips and Odds | 2 APRIL 2024

The Coup de France enters the semi final stage and 4 teams will battle for the ultimate prize. Olympique Lyon will play against Valenciennes in the semi final game at the Groupama Stadium.

Olympique Lyon's last 5 results in all competitions were: DLWWD. Valenciennes last 5 results in all competitions were: DDDLL

Olympique Lyon are ranked 10th in the Ligue 1 table while Valenciennes are ranked 20th in the Ligue 2. 

Olympique Lyon are taking a break from the league games as they play in a crunchy Coup de France match. After such a tough start to the season that saw Lyon spend extended time at the bottom, Lyon can almost hope for silverware at the end of the season. The ticket to the Coup de France final is up for grabs as Lyon takes on Ligue 2 side Valenciennes.

Olympique Lyon are coming off a 1-1 draw with Stade Reims last weekend in the Ligue 1. Ernest Nuamah scored Lyon's equalizer in the 65th minute, 10 minutes after they had conceded. The game ended in a draw and both clubs shared a point. Lyon put in a good performance in the game according to the stats. They had 64% possession, 3 shots on target and 7 corner kicks. They also created 2 big chances but missed both.

Olympique Lyon are eager to win and they are expected to go strong against Valenciennes.

Valenciennes might be trash in the Ligue 2, but they have surely earned some respect for their determination in the Coup de France tournament this year. They are competing in the semi finals and although against the odds, they are still regarded as a threat in the upcoming game.

Valenciennes will have to overcome the disappointments of their last game against Saint Etienne. The game was played at their home stadium and they lost 2-0. They fell behind to both goals in the opening 30 minutes and failed to respond. According to the stats record, Valenciennes had 47% possession, 5 shots on target and 3 corner kicks. 

Valenciennes are fully aware of the odds against them in this coming game but they must trust in their ability as they had done in previous rounds. They will most likely play safe and draw the game into a penalty kick to level the playing ground.

Lyon and Valenciennes played 16 matches against each other according to the h2h. Olympique Lyon won 8 matches, Valenciennes won 3 and they played a draw in 5 matches.

Olympique Lyon are favorites no doubt but the odds don't do us any much favor. It would be in Lyon's best interests to win this game in regular time and avoid a shootout with Valenciennes, and to do that, they need to score more than 1 goal. 

From the h2h, Lyon are unbeaten in the last 5 and Valenciennes are without a clean sheet in as many games. Both teams scored in 4 of the last 5 matches and Lyon won the first half in as many games.
