Lyon vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 3 September 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
Lyon have constantly been one of the top-rated teams in the French top flight for the past several years. And they definitely have shown this capability this time around. Meanwhile Angers have been one of the worst teams in the league this current campaign and deservedly are placed bottom-most in the table.
They are one of the three teams yet to register a single win in the current campaign and only two other teams have let in more goals than them the entire tournament. Moreover, they have a 100-percentage losing record so far, disregarding just two draws.
Even the previous season they were placed just 14th in a table of 20 and they had a surplus of just nine points over the relegation cut off. Moreover, they had managed to register a total of just ten wins all through the campaign as well.
Meanwhile Lyon secured an eighth-place finish the previous season in the French league and thus missed out on a ticket to one of the European competitions. This was quite a shock for the squad, as they have been used to representing France in continental competitions for some time now.
Anyhow they are determined to make amends for this miss and right away we can see this attitude in the performances on the pitch. Not only have they been unbeaten so far this time around in the league, but they have a 100% winning record as well, disregarding a single draw.
Considering these observations as well as the h2h superiority of Lyon, expect a victory for them this Saturday.
