Angers vs Lyon Prediction & Match Preview

Angers vs Lyon
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 22nd November 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.

Angers have started the season well and they already have 16 points and even though they are in 9th place they are only 3 points behind Lille in 2nd so there is all to play for.

Home form has been a little inconsistent for the club and they lost their last game here 3-0 against Metz but overall they have just that one defeat in their last four and will push this season to earn the bulk of their points at home.

Recent form has seen the club earn 7 points from their last 15 so they could do better but they still seem to be punching above their weight, though the game at the weekend will be very tough for them.

Lyon are in 5th place and after a slow start their form has really picked up and they have 17 points. A win here and other results going their way could see the team climb up to 2nd or 3rd.

The worry for Lyon is that they need to keep on winning because PSG have already pulled 7 points clear of them.

Lyon have been very strong in the past month though and have gained 11 points from their last 15. Playing away has not been great for the club though who have drawn 60% of their games on the road, their last away game ended in a 1-1 draw with Lille which was seen as a good result.

Angers vs Lyon: Prediction

On paper Lyon will be the favourites but they haven’t quite been at their brilliant self on the road, we feel that Angers could have something to offer here.

Lyon have the opportunity to move forward and they have no real choice but to win this game if they want to dream about winning the league. Even now that seems difficult but they will still dream and they do not have any European football in midweek to disturb them.

We will back Lyon who we hope are the hungrier of the sides since they also have a good record over Angers. But the odds of 1.57 for the win just seem a little unfair based on their away record, so we will back Lyon to be winning at half time.
