Olympique Lyon – Angers, French Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LYON - ANGERS
Lyon defeated Monaco in the first game and started with a bang – 3-0. This was not the most expected result, but the Kids played brilliantly. Of course, there was a red card for Monaco, but it seems that Lyon is not bothered by the lack of a player like Fekir, for example. In defense they stood firm and did not give many chances to their opponent, but let’s not forget that this is just one match. Lyon has repeatedly proven themselves to be a hesitant.
Angers broke Bordeaux in the first round without any difficulty. The score was 3-1. They sold their main midfielder Reine-Adelaide exactly to Lyon for € 25 million, who is Fekir’s replacement. Of course, they have bought few players and it is important to note that their coach, Moulin, is already the 9th consecutive season at the club, which can be seen very rarely, as coaches are changed frequently nowadays.
Expert view : Although Lyon is a firm favorite, we are not convinced of their victory because, as we have already mentioned, they are erratic and often allow goals. For their part, Angers does well in attack and poorly in defense, which heralds a score game. Lyon’s sales in the summer were mostly defensive, but they still have Dembele, Memphis, Traore and Cornet on offense, and those players are definitely capable of scoring. Prediction – Over 2.5 goals at 1.60.
20 of Lyon’s last 21 games have ended with over 2.5 goals
4 of Angers’ last 5 games have ended with BTTS and over 2.5 goals
