Everton vs Lyon: In one of the Group E matches of this Europa League…
The English club Everton will face the French side Lyon, on a match played at Goodison Park, in Liverpool. This is a match between the 1st and 2nd place of this group.
Everton’s manager Ronald Koeman won’t be able to count with several players for this match, namely Niasse, Barkley, Coleman, Bolasie, Funes Mori, Lennon and McCarthy; As for Lyon’s coach, Bruno Genesio, he won’t have any important absence.
Everton has been having a terrible start to this new season, at least considering the expectations they had on them, given the strong investment they made in the transfer window during the summer.
This is another proof that spending a lot of money doesn’t mean a team will instantly improve, with the team resenting a lot from the sale of Lukaku to Man Utd, because they have been very soft offensively since his departure. Since August, the team has only won 2 matches, and they are coming off 2 winless matches.
As for Lyon, the team is coming off an inconsistent star to the season, where they’ve played attacking and flashy football it is certain, but they have ended up having more on high-scoring matches than in good results for Bruno Genasio’s team.
The team is coming off only 1 win on the last 6 matches, scoring 11 goals and conceding 12 during that period and having conceded in all of those matches.
Everton vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Since both teams aren’t particularly on their best form and are both struggling defensively (although Lyon is still able to compensate for that on the attack, something that Everton hasn’t been able to do so well).
I believe this might be a match with goals, just like the other matches of the group have been so far.
