Liverpool vs Lyon Top Picks and Odds
These teams are in a midst of preparation to continue their season but have been disappointing thus far.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Liverpool has many more players away on international duty than it is the case with Lyon, but a lot of young players will get the chance to impress. Lyon has some availability issues, but this will be a good chance to get some perspective as to where things stand at the moment.
Over 2.5 Goals
Lyon already played a couple of friendly games that ended as high-scoring affairs, and with Liverpool coming in with a mixed squad, this should be another good goalscoring match.
It’s hard to fixate on a single result outcome when it comes to friendly matches, but sometimes things have a logical point of view. This will be Liverpool’s first game in almost a month, and with Lyon already training hard for the restart of the season, a draw might be a rational choice.
Liverpool vs Lyon Preview: Looking at the goalscoring opportunities
Things haven’t gone as planned for Liverpool this season, and it seems that everything bad that happened results-wise is connected to Sadio Mane’s departure. Mohamed Salah hasn’t been as efficient as he was when the Senegal winger was his teammate in the attack, and Darwin Nunez, the biggest Reds signing of the past summer has not played to his full potential just yet. All being said, Liverpool is only sixth in the Premier League trailing their arch-rivals Manchester United which hasn’t happened in a while. There are still a lot of seasons to play, but the Reds need some encouragement. At this time of the year coaches usually complain about the hectic playing schedule, but this year, because of the World Cup, plenty of players were left with an unplanned break, and coach Jurgen Klopp had a chance to work with them during this break. Liverpool is preparing for the remainder of the season in Dubai and will play additional friendlies in the days, and weeks ahead.
The French side is in a similar position as Liverpool, they have disappointed their fans thus far, currently lying in the eighth spot in Ligue 1. They missed the qualification into some of the European competitions this season, and they are trying to rectify that problem this time around. However, it hasn’t worked out as planned once again. Lyon’s main problem this season is their away form, they won only one game the entire season when playing outside their comfort zone and those points are now missed. There are some positives, however, Alexandre Lacazette returned to the club on a free transfer this summer and is his team’s best scorer with nine goals. Tete and Karl Toko Ekambi have also been decent enough. But, Lyon needs improvement. They already played a couple of friendly matches, defeating Belgian side Leuven 5-3, and losing to Arsenal by 3-0.
