Nov 22nd 11:00
- Angers v Lyon (Both Teams To Score - Yes)
- Angers v Lyon (Anytime Goalscorer - Depay, M)
- Angers v Lyon (Over/Under - Over 2.5)
Lyon are on an upward trajectory after a slow start to the season. Les Gones are unbeaten in six straight games in Ligue 1 and up to fifth in the table. They are seven points off of league leaders Paris Saint-Germain and depending on results, could move closer to the top of the table. If Angers have their way, Lyon will be further off the league leaders after their game on Sunday afternoon.
Angers are just one point behind Lyon, but sit in ninth place due to goal difference. The Black and White are eight points off of Paris Saint-Germain heading into the weekend. They will aim to be the club closing the gap on Le Parisians.
Stéphane Moulin’s team are unbeaten in four of their last six games in Ligue 1. Before the international break, Angers won 5-1 versus Nimes away. In spite of getting five goals versus Nimes, Angers have struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. They have scored just 15 goals in 10 games while allowing 20 goals.
Lyon are on an eight-match unbeaten run against Angers. The home side have not defeated Lyon since the 2015-16 season. Angers are still hurting from the 6-0 beating Lyon inflicting on them last season.
Angers vs Lyon Betting Odds
Lyon are heavy favourites to win at full-time versus Angers on Sunday. Leading sportsbooks have Lyon at odds of 17/25 to in at full-time. Their six-match unbeaten run in the league and eight-game undefeated streak versus Angers are two of the reasons behind sportsbooks liking Lyon to get the result at full-time. Lyon have taken six points from 15 away from home this season. They are on a three-match unbeaten run in the league.
Angers go into the game at odds of 17/4 to win at full-time. The Black and White are unbeaten in four of their last six Ligue 1 games. However, their head-to-head record against Lyon is poor. Add to that, Angers are winless in two straight games in Ligue 1 when playing at home. A 1-1 draw with Metz was followed by a 3-0 loss to Nice.
The clubs only played once in 2019-20 as the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to the second half of the Ligue 1 season. Lyon smashed Angers at home 6-0 in that game. Les Gones scored three goals in each half of the fixture. Rudi Garcia’s team have won three straight games versus Angers, outscoring them 10-2. Angers’ last result against Lyon came during the 2017-18 season, when they snatched a 1-1 draw away from home.
Angers vs Lyon Team News
Moulin has three players on his injury list heading into the game on Sunday. Sofiane Boufal and Mateo Pavlovic are suffering from injuries that should keep them out until the end of the month. Boufal has a knee issue while Pavlovic is recovering from an ankle injury. Enzo Ebosse is expected to miss the rest of the season due to a long-term knee problem.
The manager is without the suspended Thomas Mangani. He will serve a suspension following an accumulation of yellow cards. Stephane Bahoken leads Angers in goals with four in eight appearances. Lyon’s defence will be aware of the dangers Bahoken possesses.
Garcia is without full-back Mattia De Sciglio. He is suffering from an illness but no word has been released on whether it is COVID-19 related. De Sciglio joined Lyon on a season-long loan from Juventus. Garcia is without the suspended duo of Karl Toko Ekambi and Maxwel Cornet. Their absences will limit Garcia’s options in attack.
Ekambi has scored four goals in nine appearances this season in Ligue 1. Forward Memphis Depay has notched five goals in 10 games. Depay could be feeling the effects of playing for the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League during the international break.
Angers vs Lyon Prediction
Five of the last six games between Angers and Lyon ended with both teams scoring goals. These sides have found the back of the net when playing, but Lyon tend to get the result at full-time. Lyon are on a three-game winning streak versus Angers in Ligue 1. Lyon’s last six Ligue 1 games finished with both teams scoring goals. Although they have been scoring and getting points at full-time, Lyon have been guilty of conceding goals too.
Memphis Depay is in the last season of his Lyon contract and coming off of series knee injury that curtailed his previous campaign. The Dutchman has scored five times in 10 league matches. He has added a further three assists. However, his production has come in batches. Three of Depay’s five goals came in one game. Since opening the season with a hat-trick versus Dijon, Depay has scored twice in nine outings. Can he get on the scoresheet again versus Angers?
Six of the last eight games between Lyon and Angers finished with over 2.5 goals scored. That includes their last two games in Ligue 1. Don’t expect another 6-0 thrashing this season when these teams meet. Angers should struggle to get all three points, but they won’t let Lyon run away with a lopsided victory this time around.
Lyon are not playing European football this season. It is a reoccurrence at the club. They are doing everything possible to get back into the Champions League, but only the top three teams in Ligue 1 qualify for the Champions League tournament. A win and results going their way could see Lyon crack the top three this weekend.
Angers are not a bad team, but they should struggle to get points versus Lyon. They haven’t won in eight games versus Lyon and Sunday’s match should see the visitors win once more. Lyon have underperformed with 17 points compared to their 22.86 expected points total. If they had reached their expected points total, Lyon would be just off of Paris Saint-Germain in the table.
