Chelsea and Lyon will go head to head in a few hours from now in their concluding game preseason campaign. Chelsea are back from a Community shield defeat and will be eager to make amends this time out.

Chelsea

The Blues were still to lose a game this preseason prior to their loss in the Community Shield at the hands of Manchester City. The problem with Chelsea is that they have only won once and drew on two other occasions. Chelsea won 1-0 against Perth Glory courtesy of Pedro’s goal. Pedro also scored against Inter Milan but Chelsea went on to concede the equalizer but won on shootouts before Arsenal defeated Chelsea in a shootout that ended 6-5 in the favor of north Londoners. Sergio Aguero helped Manchester City by scoring two past Chelsea to lift Community Shield for the Citizens.

Lyon

Lyon have had a great preseason campaign so far and would be desperate to end their campaign on a high against Chelsea. Lyon have won 3 of their 6 preseason games drawing 2 and losing just once. Lyon lost to Italian giants, Inter Milan in their last International Champions Cup fixture after thrashing newly promoted English premier League side, Fulham 4-0 down to Martin Terrier’s brace. Terrier also scored in Lyon’s wins against Wolfsburg and Benfica.

Head to Head

Lyon are yet to face Chelsea in any competition. It will be the first meeting between the two sides. However, Lyon will have a mental edge over their English counterparts as Chelsea’s competitive record against French side has been poor with just 5 wins in 16 games.

Prediction

Maurizio Sarri will be looking to make a statement before the start of English topflight. Lyon have been inconsistent and Chelsea have been going through a rough patch. Both sides will be eager to bounce back from the defeats they faced last time out. Chelsea will surely take advantage from the availability of Willian for the match. It is a difficult one to call but I think Chelsea will win this fixture.

Chelsea vs Lyon Betting Tips

Chelsea to win is a decent bet with 6/4 for Tammy Abraham scoring anytime during the course of the 90 minutes makes perfect sense. We should not expect over 2.5 goals in this match.
