Lyon to lead at the break

On one hand, we have an Angers side that lost their last three games; they have no wins in their last seven matches in all competitions, with three draws and four losses. On the other hand, we have a Lyon side that won three of four league games; they are unbeaten in six matches across all competitions, with four wins and two draws. We would also like to point out that Lyon tend to play well against Angers; as they won six of the last seven clashes between these teams. Furthermore, Lyon drew first blood in six of the last seven meetings between these teams; they had the lead at half-time in four of their last six clashes. All things considered, Lyon should open the scoring, and lead at the half-time break.

Goals, goals, goals

We've mentioned that Lyon dominated previous clashes between these teams; we should also point out that most of those meetings were on the high-scoring side. In fact, the last three, and six of the last seven encounters between these sides saw at least three goals scored. In the same vein, both teams have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games recently. 17 of Lyon's last 19 matches saw three goals scored or more. Likewise, seven of Angers' last eight matches went over the 3.5 goal margin; and that's why we're should expect the goals to flow in this match.

Will Lyon easily brush Angers aside?

With Lyon fourth and unbeaten in Ligue 1 so far this season and Angers second from bottom having failed to win a single game from their opening five it's fair to say this game could be perceived as one that will be somewhat one-sided. Football doesn't always work like that though and, as such, this could be an intriguing watch.

Olympique Lyonnais will have a major boost as first-choice goalkeeper Anthony Lopes returns from a three-match ban; on the other hand, while Moussa Dembélé has recovered from a muscle injury, Houseem Aouar picked up an ankle injury, and will not be available for selection alongside Julian Pollersbeck, Sinaly Diomande and Jerome Boateng.

Lyon Predicted lineup – Lopes, Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico, Reine-Adelaide, Repenant, Tolisso, Tetê, Lacazette, Ekambi

Angers have been plagued with suspensions recently, having seen two of their players sent off in their last three matches; however, Batista Mendy will be available for selection after serving out a one-match ban. Also, Ulrick Eneme-Ella is still recovering from a knee injury.

Angers Predicted lineup – Bernardoni, Blazic, Houtondji, Camara, Bamba, Thioub, Capelle, Ounahi, Doumbia, Diony, Boufal
