Les Lierres vs. Athletico Olympic Betting Preview and Prediction – Burundi Premier League, April 4th
It is looking increasingly desperate for Les Lierres as it goes into its last four games of the season ten points from safety. The pressure remains high with this weekend’s fixture, a local Bujumbura derby against Athletico Olympic.
Olympic will also know that it needs to pick up some points in the remaining games to ensure that it stays in the top flight for at least another season, and a win here could condemn Les Lierres to the drop.

Les Lierres vs. Athletico Olympic Odds
With Les Lierres so adrift at the bottom of the table, the long odds from BetOnline for a home win are perfectly understandable. Athletico Olympic is need of the points, too, so an away win seems the most likely outcome.
After just about escaping relegation last year, Les Lierres have been round near the foot of the table virtually all season and now face a desperate fight for points if it is going to be able to stay up.
The signs are not looking good, though. Five straight defeats with only two goals scored in that time is the current form guide, and the visit of a side that was able to win without conceding a goal earlier in the campaign suggests that this could be more of the same for Les Lierres.
Athletico Olympic is only two points off the relegation places itself. But it does have a game in hand and can point to its form of just one defeat in its last seven games as a positive.
That stretch of games included a draw away from home with league leaders Le Messager Ngozi and a win against Vital’O — two sides much higher up the table. Confidence should be high within the Athletico Olympic team that it comes away with another win here.
Prediction and Pick
Athletico Olympic to Win-147
The odds may not be that good, but this game would look to be going just one way. Les Lierres just haven’t been able to compete this year and face some tough fixtures in the remainder of the season. Athletico Olympic seems to be going in the opposite direction and should be able to move one step closer to safety here.
