Lyon take on the visitors Caen in the round 2 match of French Ligue 1. The match takes place at Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Friday, August 19th.
Lyon, the runners-up of the previous season in Ligue 1, have already played two matches this summer. Today’s hosts lost the Supercup to the champions PSG, 1-4, and bounced back in the first round match against Nancy, crashing them 3-0. All three goals in the match were scored by Alexandre Lacazette. The first round showed Lyons determination to at least repeat last year result and might offer a battle to the titleholders PSG. Bruno Genesio’s men show their best results at own turf as they haven’t lost a single match at home stadium in 2016. This undefeated run includes 11 matches.

Caen had quite successful last season and this humble team finished in high seventh place in the league, gaining 54 points with 39-52 overall goal difference. The first match of the season ended with 3-2 home win over Lorient. That was taken with help of new signing from Standard, Ivan Santini, who scored double on the opening match.
Lyon confidently won both fixtures with Caen last season, 4-0 and 4-1. Considering impressive condition of the team’s leader Lacazette and home-field advantage, we should expect nothing but confident win of today’s hosing side.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win.
