Lyon and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Angers have won just two Ligue 1 games all season and this is just the sort of place Lyon need to win if they are to push themselves into a respectable Ligue 1 position. OL suffered a surprise loss to another team of strugglers, Auxerre, last week, but they should have high hopes against their poor hosts. Angers have at least managed to score in ten of their 12 home games this term and a defeat with both teams scoring would have been a winner in eight of their nine losses on their own patch.

Lyon 2-1

Reason for tip

Lyon have won four of their last seven league away games, but have kept just two clean sheets in the 13 Ligue 1 games they have played on their travels, so their defence could be vulnerable. Each of Angers’ last five home defeats have been by a 2-1 scoreline and that pattern could be followed again.

Angers vs Lyon Predictions

  • Angers have claimed just ten points from 24 Ligue 1 games this season
  • Each of Angers’ last five home defeats have been by a 2-1 scoreline
  • Lyon have kept just two away clean sheets this term

Angers look doomed to relegation

Angers have found themselves eight points adrift at the bottom of Ligue 1 and while their spirits may have been lifted to a small degree by a draw against Auxerre in their last home game, they are already in deep trouble, which could get worse against Lyon.

The home side have conceded 50 goals in their 24 league games, 18 of which they have lost, so it is difficult to see them staying up, particularly as their last victory was on September 18.

All but two of their matches since then have ended in defeat so there seems little chance of them getting out of their predicament and another defeat to Lyon appears on the cards.

Lyon showing some decent away form

With eight points to make up on sixth spot, it looks likely Lyon will not do enough to earn a place in Europe next season but they have got their act together on the road.

Four wins have been gained in their last seven on the road – against Montpellier, Brest, Ajaccio and Troyes – and he hunger should be there after they slipped to a 2-1 loss at struggling Auxerre last week.

In relation to this match, it is worth noting that a goalless draw at Nantes and a 2-0 success at Ajaccio were the only times OL have kept a clean sheet and their lowly opponents have scored in ten of their last 11 home games, so backing an away win with both teams scoring looks the most sensible option.
