[France Ligue 1] Lyon VS Angers 14.1 [Copy Link]

Lyon: Heavy program ( Recent Form: W L W W W )
Lyon is in a neck-and-neck race with Monaco for second place, the difference is only one goal in favor of Monaco. In the next four weeks it will also have a very heavy program including a home match against Paris-Saint Germain and two away games against Monaco (one by a very unlucky draw in the last 32 for the Coupe de France and once for the competition) , followed by a double confrontation with Villarreal for the Europa League. Coach Bruno Genesio will therefore have to use his full selection in the coming period. The first hurdle has already been taken. Against Nancy, a low flyer from the Ligue 2, was won 2-3 for the Coupe de France. After the early lead of Fekir Lyon seemed to give it away from the seventieth minute, After a penalty and four minutes later a hard shot at the crossbar that went into second place, Nancy took a 2-1 lead 15 minutes before time. Still, the game would turn around again in that short time: former PSVer Marcelo scored the equalizer just before the end of a corner, then Cornet made a free kick in the last second of the injury time.

Angers: Lost two cup games this year ( Recent Form: W L W L L )
At Angers, the experienced goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle returned at his own request after a trip to Club Brugge. Where he entered Bruges in 2016 and became the regular keeper, he lost his place last season and the Belgian club with keeper Gabulov got even more competition. Butelle will probably start in the base just like in the cup matches. Angers also rents Prince Oniangue for half a year from Wolverhampton, he also played his first match in the Coupe de la Ligue. Angers is currently still in nineteenth place, a place that leads to direct degradation. Yet there is certainly still hope for the team, as there are six clubs that are at a maximum of three points away. It will have to be better than the start of this year, in both cup competitions Angers was already eliminated last week. In both games Angers played at home, but in both cases it did not score. They lost 0-2 to Lorient for the Coupe de France, after which they lost in the final stage of Montpellier for the Coupe de Ligue (0-1). In that respect we see the same Angers as before the winter break, that it did better outside the home than in our own stadium.

After all, Angers started the year very weak and also in this competition I do not expect any performance from them. They are hard to score, in the two cup games they did not succeed at all and in December they only managed to score three times in five games. Lyon does well in the competition and won nine of the last eleven matches. I expect them to win again against this relegation candidate and go for Lyon -1 Asian Handicap.
