The Lyon vs. Angers match will be played on Friday, April 19, at the Groupama Stadium, Lyon. This is the first match of Ligue 1 round 33. Lyon is currently 3rd on the table with 56 points, while Angers is 12th with 41 points at the moment.


  • Lyon was defeated three times in a row. Lyon scored at least one goal in their last nine games in all competitions. We saw over 2.5 goals in eight out of their last nine games in all competitions.
  • Angers recorded a win against Caen last weekend after recording five draws in a row in the league! In four of out five draws we saw over 3.5 goals.


These teams met only seven times in the 21st century, since 2015, when Angers achieved promotion to Ligue 1 for the first time after 1993. Lyon recorded four victories, Angers had only one win, while two matches ended in a draw.


Lyon is in a very bad form in April, and their position on the table is not secure as it was in March. Saint Etienne and Marseille are only three and five points below them. With six matches to go until the end of the season, Lyon needs to step up and try to finish the season with a series of victories in order to save their position on the table. Angers is a great chance to start a new series of victories, since they have no competitive ambitions until the end of the season.
