Europa – Europa League – Play Off
Match start: 21:05 (GMT+1)
For 7 years in a row (and for French football this is really unique event) Lyon under the supervision of 4 different head coaches became the champion of the Ligue 1(2002-2008). Back then the team of famous French businessman Jean-Michel Aulas had taken really high position in Europe and was a worthy representative of France in the Champions League.
Since the last championship of Les tisseurs had passed 9 years. And as usual old Jean-Michel Aulas visits every home match. But now all that is left - only recollections and old president…
Amsterdam ArenA defeat
In the middle of last week there had been played first semifinal match between Lyon and 4 time Europa champion - Ajax at famous Amsterdam ArenA. Of course, before this match started all were sure that the grand from Holland will win over French guests.
Absolutely open game
And this situation resembles the return match between two superclubs from Madrid in the semifinal of the Champions League:
It is obvious that during all his prematch interviews the coach of Les tisseurs Bruno Génésio will say that his team will do any and all to reach the final. But the most important fact was missed … As it is almost impossible for Lyon to win back such solid handicap from the Holland grand …
But Lyon is able to win the meeting with the score that will suit Ajax (1:0).
But that is all. Nothing else the team of Bruno Génésio won’t be able to do. The team from Holland is really good in decisive battles of the Europa League. And that is why it would be wise to choose Total on scored goals.
Lyon – 1,67, draw – 4,50, Ajax – 5,00;
Total over (3,0) - odds 1,56 5Dimes
