Lyon Prediction – Can Lyon make it 2 from 2?

Following last weekend’s resounding 3-0 win away at Monaco, Lyon have become the early league leaders in the French top flight on goal difference, and they’ll no doubt be keen to continue this momentum heading into Friday night’s encounter against Angers.

After finishing in 3rd place in last season’s Ligue 1 campaign, Lyon will be desperate to emulate that finish this time around and go a step better by realistically replacing Lille as the main contenders to the perennial French champions, PSG.

Form in Ligue 1 certainly gives Lyon a chance of not only capturing all 3 points in tonight’s clash with Angers but also set them on their way in this season’s journey to a possible 2nd place finish, as the hosts have won their last 4 Ligue 1 matches on the trot.

Towards the end of last season in the top flight, Lyon secured wins against Marseille 3-0 away, a 4-0 romp at home over Caen and a 3-2 win away from home at Nimes – and together with last weekend’s convincing 3-0 win at Monaco, Lyon look a good bet for further success this Friday night.

The visitors also boast an impressive forward line that includes the likes of Dembele and Depay who have already both scored this season.

Angers Prediction – Can Angers build on opening day?

The visitors also claimed all 3 points in last week’s opening day of the new French Ligue 1 season when they registered a 3-1 home win over Bordeaux to hand manager, Stephane Moulin, a winning start to this new top flight campaign.

Angers will certainly be keen on improving last season’s final league position of 13th place on the Ligue 1 ladder this time around but they’ll need to improve their results away from home if they’re to stand a chance of making a top half finish this term.

Overall, Angers have collected just 3 wins from their last 14 matches in Ligue 1 which were victories against Caen (1-0 away) and Bordeaux on the road as well as last week’s home win against the same opponents at their Stade Raymond-Kopa.

Within this 14-match sequence, Angers have been involved in no fewer than 7 draws during this period, but with results away from home producing mixed results all last term, they’ll do well to get anything out of Lyon here this Friday night I fancy.

The visitors finished with an overall away record of 5-7-7 20/27 and they’ve also struggled against tonight’s opponents, Lyon, in previous encounters.


Key-Facts – Lyon v Angers

  • Lyon have won their last 4 Ligue 1 matches on the trot, scoring 13 goals
  • Angers have collected just 3 wins from their last 14 matches in Ligue 1
  • Lyon have won 4 of the last 6 encounters against Angers


Betting Tips Verdict

Lyon possess the greater quality in attacking areas and should win this clash with a view to also covering the asian line as well.
