Reason For Lyon vs Angers Predictions

Lyon made a number of changes to their squad during the summer transfer window, after losing their three star players Tanguy Ndombele, Nabil Fekir and Ferland Mendy for a combined fee of £115m. To replace them, they brought in Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria, Thiago Mendes and Youssouf Koje from Lille, as well as Jean Lucas from Flamengo.

Les Gones have started the season perfectly, despite losing their best players, beating Monaco 3-0 in their own back yard, with Dembele, Depay and Tousart all getting on the score-sheet. This followed on from a less than ideal pre-season, which saw the French outfit lose to Swiss side Servette, Italian side Genoa, as well as Premier League sides Liverpool and Bournemouth. Their only win came against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup.

Lyon had the 4th best home record in the league last season, winning 12 and drawing 4 of their 19 games at Lyon Olympic Stadium, losing only to Rennes, Dijon and Nice.

Angers also lost their star man over the summer in Flavien Tait as he left for Rennes, with the club reinvesting the funds to bring in Sada Thioub and Rachid Alioui, both joining from Nimes. They had a fairly strong pre-season, beating 2018 Coupe de France finalists Les Herbiers, as well as Orleans and Le Havre, while drawing to Feyenoord and losing to Monchengladbach and Arsenal on penalties.

They started off the new season with a fantastic 3-1 home win against Bordeaux, however their away form in the league last season was far from fantastic. They won just 5 games on the road. However they did have a decent record for scoring, finding the net in 13 of their 19 away league games.

We think Lyon will be far too strong for Angers in this match, however we do believe that the away side will find the net in this fixture, hence we are going for Lyon Win and Both Teams to Score as our main prediction. Lyon won both games against Angers 2-1 last season, so it makes sense for us to go with that as the correct score.
