Angers vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers are in mid table with 12 points and have not been poor or good this season which reflects their league standing. On one hand recent form has seen the club lose 1 game in their last five. But 3 of those matches have ended in draws, just like last weekend when their match finished 1-1 away to Reims.
Angers have really struggled at home where they haven’t won since the beginning of September and now they will face one of their biggest tests of the season.
Lyon are not playing to their full potential, partially because they know the league is already gone to PSG. They are already 13 points behind them and in 5th place and their objective this season will be to finish in a Champions League spot and have a good deep run in the cups.
They had to play in the Champions League in midweek where they drew 3-3 with Hoffenheim and that game and the trip to Germany may have taken out some reserves for the team who probably would have wished to have played this game on Sunday.
Last weekend they eased past Nimes 2-0 and away from home they have won just 1 game all season and have really had problems on the road.

Angers vs Lyon: Prediction
Our bet here is to see Angers get something from this game on the handicap. Lyon have not been in good form and struggled to find it away from home.
Angers keep dropping points but are at least not losing all of the time. Lyon are not firing like they should be doing and putting all of their energy into their European fixtures.
The hosts have the quality at home to surprise their opponents. We will also back both teams to find the back of the net.
