Lyon and Everton played at Goodison Park two weeks ago, when the Toffees were still led by Ronald Koeman, and now the Liverpool team is going to France on the upcoming Thursday with Unsworth as the caretaker. Bookmakers are on Les Gones’ side in this couple, who look very decently lately and it is hard to disagree with such action line.
Olympique Lyonnais are already in the top-three of the French Ligue 1, the future hosts have 22 points in the asset, seven points behind the leading PSG. Lyon’s goal for the season is getting into the Champions League zone. And if they will not manage to achieve their goal via the French championship, Olympique will try to do it by winning the Europa League. Within the last five matches, Les Gones won four times and had one draw.
Everton lost four times and had only one draw with Brighton within the last five matches. The Blues have fallen down to the relegation zone in the EPL tournament table and under such circumstances the attention of the team will be concentrated on the championship of England. The Toffees have minimal chances on the second position in the Europa League, the team has only one point in the asset and there is a great probability that the Englishmen will bring the secondary squad to France.
Lyon are approaching the upcoming match as deserved favorites, Les Gones are in a great shape, play very powerfully at their home ground unlike their future opponents, which are concentrating on domestic competitions. The only true bet in the Lyon – Everton couple is the option with the victory of the future hosts.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win
