Lyon vs Angers preview, betting tips and prediction: Lyon to put Angers to the sword

Share this on

Lyon and over 2.5 goals @ 11/10 with Ladbrokes

Tied on points with AS Monaco in the battle to be best runner-up of Ligue Un, Lyon have one of Europe’s most exciting frontlines. Mariano Diaz, a snip at €8m from Real Madrid last summer, has proven to be one of the stars of the season.

He’s a talent that Los Blancos could certainly do with now. The 24-year-old, who has 13 league goals at the halfway point, spearheads an attack flanked by Memphis Depay and Bertrand Traore.

The undoubted star of the team, however, is captain Nabil Fekir. An intelligent playmaker not dissimilar to Riyad Mahrez, Fekir’s intelligence helps Lyon tick. They’re bound to have a fight on their hands in the summer when suitors come calling. Especially if Fekir manages to star for France at the World Cup.

If he matches his output in the first half of the campaign, Didier Deschamps will find it nigh on impossible to ignore him when the time comes to pick a squad from the ludicrously talented pool of stars France have at their disposal. This weekend’s opponents are Angers, who are battling to stay in Ligue 1.

They’re in good company too. It’s so tight at the bottom of the table that just three points separate Angers in 19th and 13th-placed Amiens. While they felt the force of Lyon’s attack in their October meeting, Angers gave as good as they got and managed to grab a 3-3 draw. At home and with an eye on the fixture to follow, Lyon will be raring to go.

For if they can capitalise on an unlikely PSG slip-up this weekend, it will make the leaders wary of their trip to the Groupama Stadium. Travel sickness could occur again.
