Arsenal vs Lyon prediction and top betting odds

This friendly game between Arsenal and Lyon is supposed to answer a major question – are Mikel Arteta’s boys strong enough to face the top teams without some of the stars in the starting XI?

Arsenal to win

The Gunners are favorites to win here, according to Ladbrokes. And how could they not be? Arsenal are currently at the top of the table in the English Premier League. They are even ahead of the outstandingly-good Manchester City squad.

Yes, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli won’t be in the group for this match against Lyon but there are plenty of other young talents who can score a goal at any moment. All they need is the chance that coach Mikel Arteta is going to give them.

Over 3.5 goals

These exhibition games are often used by managers to tweak a few tactics, try out a few new players, and see how a team performs under pressure. Arsenal are one of the top attacking teams in the English Premier League this season.

The Gunner have scored a total of 33 goals in just 14 games. That’s more than 2 goals per game! And most of these goals weren’t even scored by the big star up front, Gabriel Jesus, who won’t be playing today either.

Both teams to score – yes

Being only a friendly game, the match on the 8th of December holds the possibility for plenty of errors. Both coaches will give a chance to the new lads and while their youth has its advantages, experience is certainly not one of them. We expect both teams to make some ludicrous attempts that would most likely result in errors.
