Chelsea Women vs Lyon Women Predictions
Chelsea Women to Qualify @ 1.50 (1/2)
Olympique Lyonnais Women aren’t what they used to be, and their chances of reaching the semifinals are very slim. They used to be a very formidable side that scored goals for fun, but this season is different, as they are averaging just over a goal per game. Lyon needs at least two unreplied goals to go ahead in this tie, but in their last three Champions League games, the French side has never scored more than a goal.
Chelsea Women is a very strong team at home, and they have not lost a game here this season. This gives them great confidence ahead of this tie, as a draw would secure their passage to the semifinals. A bet on the Blues to qualify has great value on Women’s UCL Odds betting.
Both Teams to Score @ 1.44 (4/9)
Despite their struggles this season, Olympique Lyonnais Féminin is still a decent side that can turn up at any given moment. They are underdogs to go through but they should at least get a goal in this game even if they lose. Chelsea Women is one of the highest-scoring teams in this tournament, and they have scored 20 goals in just seven matches. Both teams have a good attack and with Lyon going all out at Stamford Bridge, we should see both teams get on the score sheet in this tie.
First 30 Minutes – Over 0.5 Goals @ 1.53 (8/15)
The first 30 minutes of both Chelsea and Lyon Women’s games have not lacked goals, and there is good value in betting on a goal in the first 30 minutes. All of Chelsea Women’s last five games have produced at least a goal in the first 30 minutes, while 80% of Lyon’s last five games have seen a goal scored before the half-hour mark. The odds for a goal in the first 30 minutes has a very valuable option for Women’s football betting.
