Lyon are priced at 17/4 to secure a 1-1 draw against Rubin Kazan and qualify for the Champions League group stages for the 12th consecutive season.
Les Gones travel to Russia on the back of a 1-1 draw with Brest in their Ligue 1 encounter at the weekend, while Rubin also come into the game following a 1-1 draw, making a repeat scoreline particularly tempting.
Kurban Berdyev’s men certainly have their work cut out to make it through to the group stages after slumping to a 3-1 loss in the first leg at the Stade de Gerland last week.
They are priced at 31/20 to win the match and 6/1 to progress to the next round of the competition.
However, even if they don’t win the tie the Russian side are notoriously difficult to beat on their own turf and have never tasted defeat in the Champions League at Tsentralnyi Stadion.
Goals are a rarity in Kazan with just over one goal a game scored on average in Rubin’s previous Champions League group games.
The Russians have scored just five goals and conceded three in their seven home matches in Europe’s premier competition with three also ending goalless.
With this in mind, another blank score-sheet, priced at 37/20, could also be a good bet.
That said, Rubin will have to attack Lyon from the start and football betting fans looking to take advantage of bwin’s £25 free bet could look at Rubin to lead at half time but for the game to end as a draw, which is priced at 23/2.
A successful £25 free bet on this outcome, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £312.50.
Alternatively, you can get 17/10 for there to be one goal scored in the first half.
Remi Garde’s men have scored in both of their away league fixtures so far this season and will be confident of continuing that run.
Looking at the goal scoring market, Vladimir Dyadyun, scorer for Rubin in Lyon last week, is priced at 7/1 to open the scoring for the hosts.
Meanwhile, Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis is priced at 13/2 to add to his goal from the first leg at any time during the game.
