Angers vs Lyon Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Angers and Lyon will square off at the Stade Raymond Kopa on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Angers threw away a two-goal lead to only register a 2-2 away draw at Nice last weekend. Mateo Pavlovic and Karl Toko Ekambi both got on the scoresheet for Angers in the first 34 minutes of the game, but this wasn’t enough for Angers to grab all three points. Lyon fought back from one-goal down to secure a 3-3 home draw against Dijon last weekend thanks to goals from Nabil Fekir, Houssem Aouar and Mariano Diaz. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m backing Lyon to get back to winning ways in this one as they have won the most recent three meetings with Angers in Ligue 1, scoring at least two goals in each of these. However, I’m also fancying Angers to get on the scoresheet as they have scored at least once in four of their last five home games across all competitions.

Lyon to win at odds 13/10

Angers Preview

Angers’ form in this early part of the new Ligue 1 campaign has been a complete mixed bag with five draws, one win and one defeat in their opening seven league fixtures. They are currently on a five-game winless streak in Ligue 1, but the good news is that they have scored at least once in four of these. The bad news is that Angers are winless in the last four competitive home fixtures, scoring just three goals in this term. Furthermore, they have lost their both home meetings with Lyon in Ligue 1, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Despite the recent struggle, Angers still find themselves on a comfortable 11th spot in the standings tied on eight points with Troyes and Montpellier, three points clear of the bottom three. The good news is that Angers looked decent going forward throughout this early part of the season, having scored nine goals in seven games. Karl Toko Ekambi and Thomas Mangani are the team’s joint topscorers at the moment with two goals each under their belts.

Angers Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Angers ahead of this game and the good news is that Billy Ketkeophomphone is back in training following his cruciate ligament injury.

Lyon Preview

Meanwhile, Lyon have only lost once in nine competitive games so far this season, but their recent form hasn’t been that good. They are winless in four competitive fixtures at the moment in time, including a disappointing 3-3 home draw against Dijon last time out in Ligue 1. During this poor run of form, Lyon threw away a one-goal lead in both their Europa League group fixtures to secure two consecutive draws against Apollon and Atalanta. Les Gones find themselves only in second spot in the Ligue 1 table tied on two points with Apollon and two points behind the current leaders Atalanta. Regarding their Ligue 1 campaign, Lyon sit 7th in the standings tied on twelve points with the 8th-placed Caen, one point behind the top five. Lyon managed an impressive tally of 14 goals in seven rounds, but conceding has been their biggest problem throughout the season. They have already conceded ten goals in seven games, which is one of the worst defensive records in the division. Nabil Fekir and Mariano Diaz have both enjoyed a strong start to the season, as the pair bagged ten goals and one assist between them.

Lyon Team News

Fernando Marcal is a doubt, but Amine Gouiri and Pape Cheikh Dlop Gueye is back in training.
