French side Lyon take on Italian team Atalanta in the UEFA Europa League. This is a big game in this tournament because it is between two sides that are evenly matched and both have the ability to go deep in the competition. Both teams will be desperate to get a win in this game and that should make this a very exciting game.
Lyon will be at home for this game and as a result of that, they will hope to use their home ground advantage well. This side is very dangerous going forward but it seems like they have some major issues when it comes to defending. Lyon lost a weekend game a few days back due to their poor defense and that is causing them to have many problems this year.
On the other hand, Atalanta have had a decent season so far and they will hope to be able to use that in this week's game. The Italian side has lost many players over the summer but it seems like they have still managed to keep a decent squad together which is still able to compete at a similar level to last season. This will not be an easy game for the Italian side since they will be away from home and Lyon are a quality attacking force.
All in all, I am going to predict that Lyon will win this game. Lyon has talent and at home, they should have enough to get a much needed three points. We are getting a decent enough price on this bet so I think betting on Lyon to win is the best overall bet for this game. In addition to that, considering the defense of Lyon, the over 2.5 goals bet is also looking quite appealing.
