Lyon vs Angers Prediction & Match Preview

Friday, August 16 – 14:45 EST – Parc Olympique Lyonnais

Lyon will look to impress their fans as they play their opening home match on Friday evening. Much of last season’s success was due to their performances at the Parc Olympique as they won 12 out of 19 matches. They were also capable of averaging 2 goals per game when playing at home. They will look to build on those results when hosting Angers. Furthermore, Lyon had a dominant display against Monaco in the opening fixture of the 2019/20 season. Despite Monaco being down to 10 men, Lyon kept composed and controlled much of the match. Dembele, Depay, and Tousart all found the back of the net.

On the other hand, Angers will look to improve on a 13th place finish this season. Their season started in the best of ways, as they managed to win their opening fixture against Bordeaux. Reine-Adelaide, Pereira, and Mangani all scored for the home side. However, it won’t be an easy task when they travel to Lyon on Friday. Angers only managed to win 5 out of 19 away matches last season, while averaging about 1 goal per game.

We believe that Lyon will have an easy task as they search for their second consecutive win of the season. We also think that they will manage to put a couple of goals past Angers without a problem.
