Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

Lyon to Win

Auxerre is the second worst team in the league which just stunned Lyon, but this week there is an even worse opponent according to league ranking, it is Angers, a team that only won twice the entire season thus far. Angers are not only at the very bottom of the standings, but also they are the second-worst defensive team in the league that conceded 50 goals. In this Angers vs Lyon prediction, the visiting team gets the nod despite themselves having all sorts of problems, especially in away games. They did, however, showed improvement recently while playing as a guest team, but then they took a step backward in a loss to Auxerre. Lyon won four out of the last five matches between these sides, and the only victory Angers earned was two years ago at home.

Over 2.5 Goals

Going for a big-scoring game makes sense as four of the last five outings between these teams ended with fewer than two goals scored, and the first match of the current season ended with a 5-0 win by Lyon. As a matter of a fact, if we go further in the past we can see that only two matches from the last ten in the h2h matchup, ended with under 2.5 goals. Looking at this season alone, Lyon had 13 over 2.5 goals matches while Angers' number is 16.

Preview, Team News, and Angers vs Lyon Lineups

Angers

The future looks gloomy for the home team, with only two wins this season, they deserve to be the last in the rankings. Interestingly, both wins were earned in back-to-back rounds in September when they beat Montpellier and Nice. Little they had expected that those wins were the last ones for a long time. Farid El Melali, Yahia Fofana, Ali Kalla, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella are still out but should be back on the field soon.

Predicted lineup: Bernardoni, Valery, Hountondji, Blazic, Ghoulam, Abdelli, Capelle, Bentaleb, Doumbia, Sima, Niane.

Lyon

Lyon went five wins in six games with one draw in the period of six straight matches which includes two French Cup victories, but going down to Auxerre took its toll on the club. They still have a decent chance of capturing one of the top five positions, but they can't afford any more mistakes. Houssem Aouar, Alexandre Lacazette, and Malo Gusto are injured at the moment. The Lacazette injury is the one that stands out as he is by far the best player for the team this season scoring 14 goals with four assists which is also the highest mark on the team.

Predicted lineup: Lopes, Diomande, Lovren, Lukeba, Kumbedi, Caqueret, Tolisso, Tagliafico, Cherki, Sarr, Dembele.

Player to Watch: Ryan Cherki

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder will have a more engaging role in the coming games, especially with the injury to Alexandre Lacazette. In limited minutes he has scored three goals and assisted on four occasions playing in 21 league games this season for Lyon.
