Lyon vs Everton predictions and betting tips for the Europa League fixture on Thursday 2nd November with reasons for each selection made by our tipster.
Everton travel to Lyon for this Europa League tie this week knowing their Europa League campaign is hanging by a thread. They have only picked up one point from their opening three matches and need to win in Lyon. A point might keep them alive but they would be relying on other results. We start with the best Lyon vs Everton prediction for this week.
The reverse fixture two weeks ago ended in a 2-1 Lyon victory and the teams come into this match in contrasting form. Everton don’t have a manager and are in the Premier League relegation zone, as well as sitting bottom of their Europa League group. Having said this, Lyon have drawn at home to Atalanta and away to Apollon in this competition. Everton really need to turn a corner and I have a suspicion it could be in this match in front of a raucous away following. The first of our Lyon vs Everton predictions is for Everton to win or draw. The best odds for this are 9/5 at Sportingbet. Get a £50 free bet from Sportingbet.
Lyon have only kept one clean sheet in their last six home matches and have conceded 10 goals in that time. Everton cannot keep a clean sheet to save their lives. Despite being on a terrible run Everton are getting on the scoresheet in games. Both teams have scored in four of their last five matches. The second of our Lyon vs Everton predictions if for both teams to score and the odds for BTTS are 4/5 at Stan James where new customers get a £20 free bet.
For today’s anytime goalscorer tip we’re going with a player who scored in the reverse fixture and who is in a rich vein of form. Nabil Fekir scored from the penalty spot at Goodison Park and has scored ten goals in 11 matches so far this season. He scored twice at the weekend against Metz so gets the nod to complete our Lyon vs Everton betting tips. The best odds for Fekir to score against Everton are 7/5 with Betfair.
Ferland Mendy looks to be the only real doubt for Lyon ahead of this match.
Everton are still flooded with long-term injuries including Bolasie, Coleman and Funes Mori. Vlasic had a knock so missed out against Leicester at the weekend but might be fit to return.
