Rangers to avoid defeat
Lyon have had a perfect record in the Europa League this season; they’ve won five from five, scoring 15 times and conceding just four goals. The thing is, Lyon have qualified for the round of 32, so they may not field their strongest line up today. On the other hand, Rangers have won four games in a row. They’ve scored nine goals in that stretch, conceding just once. Unlike Lyon, Rangers do need points in this game; considering how they’ve been playing lately, we believe that Rangers will hold on for at least one point here.
Both sides will net
Lyon have not had much difficulty finding the back of the net this season; they’ve scored in all of their last 19 games across all competitions. Peter Bosz’s men have conceded their fair share of goals; they’ve conceded in four of their last five games. Just like Lyon, Rangers have enjoyed a double digit scoring streak; they’ve scored in all of their last 13 games in all competitions. Both teams have scored in four of Lyon’s last five, and six of Rangers’ last ten games; with these teams’ respective scoring streaks in mind, both teams should score.
Plenty of goals on show
These are the highest scoring teams in Group A. Lyon have scored three goals per game on average in this tournament; their last four games have all gone over 2.5. As a matter of fact, eight of Lyon’s last nine games in all competitions have gone above the 2.5 goal mark. In the same vein, Rangers have scored nine goals in their last four games, and 21 goals in their last 8 games; as a result of their scoring ability, their games tend to be on the high-scoring side. Four of Rangers’ last six games have gone over 2.5; on that note, we believe the goals will flow in this game.
