Angers Preview – Can the hosts move on to six points?

Angers finished in 13th place under Stephane Moulin last season. At the end of the campaign, Moulin left to take over at Ligue 2 outfit Caen. Shortly after, Angers announced Gerald Baticle as their new manager. Baticle had been assistant manager at Lyon for ten years.

The new boss got off to the perfect start last weekend. On the opening weekend of the 2021-22 Ligue 1 season, the Black and Whites picked up an impressive 2-0 win at Strasbourg. After a tense first half, Angers took the lead in the 57th minute, with Ismael Traore netting. With nine minutes left, Stephane Bahoken doubled Angers’ advantage.

Our betting prediction:
Lyon to win -1

(odds taken 1025 GMT, Saturday 14 August)

After the superb opening weekend win, can Angers follow that up with a massive three points against Lyon on Sunday? They are the underdogs with the bookies at 7/2.

Lyon Preview – Will Bosz’s boys back with three points?

Peter Bosz’s first game as Lyon boss ended in a frustrating 1-1 home draw with Brest last weekend. It could have been worse, though, as they fell behind before half time. However, Lyon rallied in the second period and found an equaliser through Islam Slimani.

Under Rudi Garcia last season, Lyon finished in fourth place. However, a lot has changed at the Groupama Stadium since then, with Garcia moving on. Also, top scorer Memphis Depay has left for Barcelona.
