Reason for Rangers vs Lyon Predictions
Glasgow Rangers are back to their best after stuttering a bit earlier in the season, and they will be eying a fine start when they host French side Olympique Lyonnais in the Europa League. The two sides go to the Group A game on the back of unbeaten runs and hoping to take crucial points from this game. Rangers are unbeaten in their last six matches, scoring 13 goals in the process and conceding three. They have four wins in the six games and scored two or more in three of their last six. Rangers have scored eight goals in their previous five matches, and six of these have come in the second half. Going to this game, they have three straight wins at home and lost just once in seven home matches. Last season, they reached the Round of 16 in this competition, and they took a very good run to this game, having lost once in 15 matches. Scott Arfield is an experienced midfielder, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from him. Fans love this man. Ryan Kent enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Lyon goes to this game on the back of wins over Nantes and Strasbourg in Ligue 1. They have a three-game unbeaten run, and after missing out on Europe last season, this is an opportunity they’ll want to make the count. Two seasons ago, Lyon reached the Champions League semis, and they carry to this game some good experience in continental competitions. It is in defense that they’ll have the most worries, though, having managed just one clean sheet in 12 matches. Lyon has scored two or more goals in seven of their last ten games, but both teams have scored in three of their previous five. Thiago Mendes has found the right role in the squad, he is doing great, and it is difficult for this guy to take the ball away. Many teams are interested in signing him. Moussa Dembele is the best player for the home side, and he has excellent dribbles. His greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. One thing is for sure – football fans should enjoy this game.
