Lyon to end poor run with a win over Angers

On Friday night, Lyon host Angers at the Groupama Stadium, as the home side look to consolidate their position in the Champions League spots.

Lyon are currently third in Ligue One, occupying the Champions League play-off spot. However, OL are now just three points clear of fourth-place Saint-Etienne in the race to secure the final spot in Europe’s elite competition for next season.

Bruno Genesio’s team heads into this clash after back-to-back league defeats against Dijon and Nantes, as well as a 3-2 home loss to Rennes in the French Cup.

One major factor in those recent poor results is the fact that the home side has conceded at least two goals in four of their last five league outings.

The recent surprise 3-1 home defeat by struggling Dijon ended a run of five wins and a draw at the Groupama Stadium in Ligue One for OL. The home side had also previously scored at least two goals in their previous four home matches in the French top-flight prior to the Dijon defeat too.

Angers are currently midtable in Ligue One after a steady campaign. The visitors head into this clash on the back of a six-game unbeaten run in Ligue One. However, five of those unbeaten games have finished all-square. A 1-0 win at Caen last time out ended a run of five straight draws for the visitors in the French top-flight.

Angers have been relatively prolific in Ligue One in recent games, scoring at least two goals in five of their last eight matches in the French top-flight.

The visitors have found victories hard to come by on their travels of late in Ligue One, as they have won just two of their last 12 away matches in the French top-flight.

Forebet predicts that Lyon will end Angers recent unbeaten run in the league by recording a victory in a high scoring clash.
