Lyon Preview – Will the French side keep 100% record?

Lyon have arguably been the best team in the Europa League this season. Peter Bosz’s men are the only club in the competition with a 100% record. The Ligue 1 side have won five, scored 15 and shipped just four.

Lyon started with comfortable wins over Rangers and Brondby before edging a seven-goal thriller against Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic capital. After that, Bosz’s side beat Prague 3-0 at home and won 3-1 at Brondby.

Our betting prediction:
Lyon to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1218 GMT, Wednesday 8 December)

Lyon are through to the last 16 as group winners, but the French giants will be desperate to maintain their 100% winning record on Thursday. The home victory is priced at 10/11.

Rangers Preview – Can the Gers upset the group winners?

Rangers will join Lyon in the knockouts as Group A runners-up. The Gers recovered well after a slow start to take seven points from their last three and get the job done with a game to go.

Under Steven Gerrard, who is now Aston Villa boss, Rangers lost their opening two matches to Lyon and Sparta Prague. However, the Scottish champions got their act together and picked up 2-0 home victories over Brondby and Prague. They also drew 1-1 with the Danish side away from home.

Lyon vs Rangers Betting Advice

These two clubs have met three times before. In the reverse match in this season’s Europa League, Lyon ran out 2-0 winners at Ibrox thanks to a Karl Toko Ekambi effort and a James Tavernier own goal.

In the 2007-08 UEFA Champions League, both sides won the away fixtures by three goals to nil. The Gers won in France, with Lee McCulloch, Daniel Cousin and DaMarcus Beasley scoring. However, Lyon returned the favour with a 3-0 victory of their own in Glasgow just a couple of months later – Karim Benzema netted twice at Ibrox.


Key Facts – Lyon vs Rangers Betting Tip

  • Lyon have taken 15 points from a possible 15
  • The French team won 2-0 at Ibrox back in September
  • These two teams are through to the last 16


Lyon have been very easy on the eye in this season’s Europa League. They are the only club to have a 100% record in the competition, and we fancy Bosz’s men to make it 18 points from a possible 18.

Lyon won 2-0 in the reverse fixture in Scotland in September, and a repeat scoreline here is nicely priced at 10/1. There is also good value in 2/1 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time on Thursday.
