The second set of games kick off on Sunday with Lyon takingon Villareal on Sunday .Lyon will want to put that 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Arsenal out of their minds and will look to star man Lacazette to get something going up front against a tough Villareal team. Lyon have plenty of attacking potential and with the aformentioned Lacazette , Fekir and Njie it was surprising to see the side shut out by Arsenal although it was a strange game. Arsenal scored four goals in ten minutes to kill off the game and really Lyon did not create enough offence to trouble Arsenal. On Sunday against Villareal the French side will be hopingfor more output from their wingers and their top two and their fans will be hoping to see at least a goal.
Villareal were impressive in beating a fancied Wolfsburg side and the Spanish side will look to repeat the trick on Sunday. The Yellow submarines as they are affectionately known will look to Moreno and Leo Baptistao to keep their hopes of winning the Emirates cup alive. Baptistao in particular is going to carry alot of pressure on his shoulders this season as the young Brazilian is charged with trying to replace the brilliant Vietto. Villareal were impressive on Saturday though and I think they can repeat the feat here on Sunday.
Like I said above I was impressed with Villareal and cant go against the Spanish side here on Sunday. I do think that Lyon were better than the result against Arsenal but still dont fancy them to get anythng from this game as they look to be trying to find a balance where as Villareal play like a side that have already ironed out alot of pre season jitters.
