Tip Rangers - Lyon

Rangers Lyon Prediction published on September 14, 2021 at 1:42 PM - modifiedat September 14, 2021 at 1:44 PM

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 matches and scored two or more in three of their last six. In their last five matches, Rangers have scored eight goals, 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 take to this game a very good run, having lost once in 15 matches. They have 10 wins in the 15 Europa League matches leading to this one.

Lyon go 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 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 defence that they’ll have the most worries though, having managed just one clean sheet in 12 matches. Lyon have scored two or more goals in seven of their last 10 matches but both teams have scored in three of their last five. The French side has conceded seven goals in the last four matches, and five of the goals have come in the second half. Lyon last played in the Europa League in 2018 and they wrapped up with three wins in four matches.

Rangers have the better run here and will easily assume the favorites’ tag. Playing at home, an all-out attack will favor them but Lyon are expected to line up defensively, and should be able to repel the hosts’ attacks. Rangers have scored most of their goals in the second half and will be targeting a jaded Lyon, in the second half. Lyon have also conceded more in the second half, so go for second half to produce the most goals here.
