The Everton vs. Lyon match will be played on Thursday, October 19, at the Goodison Park, Liverpool. This is the third round match of Europa League group E. Everton is currently fourth on the table with only one point, while Lyon is second with two points at the moment.

STATS

  • Everton is currently in a series of three matches without a victory, and they played those games against weaker opponents - Apollon, Burnley, and Brighton.
  • Lyon finally interrupted their five games winless streak with an excellent victory over Monaco last weekend. In their previous four matches, both teams scored at least one goal.

HEAD TO HEAD

This will be the first match between Everton and Lyon.

EVERTON NEWS

Everton had huge ambitions before the start of the season, but they are underperforming at the moment. Everton is currently 16th in Premier League, with several severe defeats against the top teams, and weak draws against the teams that should fight against relegation. In Europa League, they failed to defeat outsiders Apollon at home, and they were quickly beaten in Italy against Atalanta. It is clear that Everton has to win the match against Lyon to get back into the race for one of the top two positions in the group. However, in the history of this competition, English clubs showed that Premier League is their top priority, so it won't be surprising if Everton chooses to play with reserve team from now on.

LYON NEWS

Apollon equalized in the last moments of their first-round match against Lyon, while they recorded another draw against Atalanta. The victory in England would mean a lot for them. If they do that, they would practically eliminate Everton from the competition.
