Angers is hosting Olympique Lyonnais at Stade Raymond Kopa in round 11 in the French Ligue 1.
Angers has been doing surprisingly well so far this season, at least in the attacking end. Angers has scored 15 goals, but their defense has been bad, and they have conceded 20 goals in 10 games. Angers is in 9th place with 16 points in the Ligue 1 standings. In their latest Ligue 1 match, Angers was playing against Nimes on the road, and they have had 40% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 72% of the correct passes. Angers didn’t have the majority of possession, but they certainly used all of their chances. Angers has won this match 1-5. Bahoken is the leading goalscorer for Angers with 4 goals, while Traore added 3 goals, and Fulgini has 2 goals. Traore has also added 3 assists. Ebosse is the only injured player for Angers at this time. Angers was right in the middle of the table last season, and I don’t expect them to be any higher this season. Angers’ defense is not even close to the one from last season, and for that reason, I think Angers will be much closer to the relegation zone this season.
Lyon has finally found some good rhythm, and they have won 3 of their last 4 games, while the last one ended in a draw. Lyon has scored 10 goals during this streak, but they have also conceded at least 1 goal in their last 6 games, 7 goals in total. Depay is Lyon’s best player so far this season with 5 scored goals and 3 assists. Ekambi has added 4 assists. There are no injuries or suspensions in Lyon as of right now, which is a good thing because they could continue their good form. Lyon was hosting Saint-Etienne in their last game in Ligue 1, and they have had 59% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 81% of the correct passes. Lyon was losing at halftime, but they were able to turn the game around in the second half with 2 goals. Lyon has won this match 2-1. With this win, Lyon has climbed the standings to 6th place with 17 points, 17 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals so far this season. The good news for Lyon is that they are not playing in any of the European competitions, but their form in Ligue 1 is still rising. If Lyon will be able to keep all of their players until the end of the season, they will be in the competition for the title, but that is still far away.
Angers hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Lyon, and the last home win against Lyon was back in 1993. Lyon has had plenty of success against Angers on the road, and they are the better team here. I’m taking Lyon on the road.
