Great pressure on the players of Olympique Lyonnais! In a press conference this week, Bruno Génésio said it and repeated: it will be necessary at all costs not to lose points against the “teams deemed weaker”. If on paper, OL obviously does not have to shake at the dawn of hosting the SCO Angers, les Gones are not immune to one or more missteps and underestimate a opponent would be a big mistake in Ligue 1. The squad Lyon has been warned, not entitled to the error to stay in the race for the Champions League, and on paper, Lyon should indeed stand out winner of this clash facing the 19th!
Our Bet Explained
Lyon 3rd and home, Angers 19th. The standings and the 23 points of difference that separate the two clubs speak for themselves!
Outdoors, Angers remains in 5 consecutive games without a win and especially 3 defeats in a row without scoring a goal: in Troyes (0-3), Monaco (0-1), Nantes (0-1).
Unlike OL, the SCO played two rounds of cup in the last days. In addition to losing both games, this trip to Lyon will be the 3rd in 7 days for the Angevins.
During their last 4 confrontations, Lyon remains on 3 wins and 1 draw against the SCO.
5 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss: OL are quite serene this season at home.
Our prediction Lyon Angers Sco
The rating of 1.45 seems interesting given the gap in the ranking between Lyon and Angers and the fact that this meeting will be played at Groupama Stadium. OL stay home master!
