Lyon vs Atalanta Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Atalanta will be looking for their second victory in the row in their Europa League group E when they travel to the Groupama Stadium to take on Lyon on Thursday night. Lyon only managed a disappointing 1-1 away draw at Apollon Limassol in their Europa League group opener, despite the fact that Memphis Depay gave them the lead soon after the break. On the other hand, Atalanta won 3-0 at home over Everton last time out, with Andrea Masiello, Alejandro Gomez and Bryan Cristante all getting on the scoresheet in the first half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Lyon Preview

Lyon have only lost once in eight competitive games so far this season, but their recent form has been terrible. After their 1-1 away draw at Apollon in their Europa League group opener a fortnight ago, Lyon suffered a 2-0 defeat on the road at Paris Saint Germain in Ligue 1 a week ago. In addition, they threw away a one-goal lead twice to only secure a 3-3 home draw against Dijon in Ligue 1 at the weekend. This leaves Les Gones only in 7th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on twelve points with Caen, just one point of the top five. Regarding their Europa League recent record, Lyon were Semi-finalists last season when they suffered 5-4 aggregate defeat at the hands of Ajax. However, the French should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have won their last four Europa League home fixtures, scoring 16 goals in the process. During this run of form, Les Gones have secured a 4-2 victory over another Italian club in the shape of Roma in last season’s round of 16. Furthermore, Lyon’s recent home form has seen them win five and draw four of their last nine home games across all competitions.Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fekir have both been in fine shape throughout this early part of the new Ligue 1 campaign, having scored five goals each.

Lyon Team News

Rafael da Silva, Pape Cheikh DIop Gueye and Fernando Marcal are all doubts, but Amine Gouiri is back in training.

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta, on the other hand, have enjoyed an impressive run of form recently, having won four and draw two of their last six games across all competitions. During this run, la Dea managed an impressive 3-0 home victory over the Premier League side Everton in their Europa League group opener. The Italians looked incredibly strong going forward over the past three weeks, scoring at least two goals in four of their last six competitive fixtures. The bad news is that Atalanta have failed to win a single competitive away game so far this season, scoring just once in each of these. Actually, Atalanta’s away form over the past eight months has seen them win just six of their last 15 away games across all competitions. The only good thing is that La Dea managed to find the back of the net in each of their last 15 competitive away fixtures. Atalanta’s victory over Everton was their first European game since the 1990/91 season, when they were eliminated by Inter in the UEFA Cup quarter-finals. Alejandro Gomez got on the scoresheet last time out in the Europa League and he has also scored the team with three goals and two assists in this early part of the new Serie A season.

Atalanta Team News

Rafael Toloi and Josip Ilicic are both doubts, but Joao Felipe Schmidt Urbano is out through injury.
