|Olympique Lyonnais and Angers SCO both kick-started their season perfectly with a win last weekend. The hosts will be confident of victory again here, having not lost an opening L1 home fixture since 1999 (W13, D6), including winning ‘to nil’ in each of their last three whilst leading 1-0 at half time.|
|If they do win, it will likely be an entertaining game, as each Lyon’s last seven L1 home victories have featured at least three total goals. Additionally, Lyon have a great top-flight H2H home record versus Angers (W16, D7, L4), scoring over twice as many as they have conceded (GF 55, GA 24).|
|This game could be a tight clash though, as just two of Angers’ last 16 away league fixtures were settled by a two-goal margin or more. Interestingly, the visitors have seen just one side score in each of their last four opening L1 away fixtures (W2, L2).|
|However, ‘Les Scoïstes’ conceded first in nearly half (nine) of their 19 L1 away games last term, and boasted the league’s joint-third worst average possession rate on the road (44%). In fact, they may want to keep it tight late on, as 40.74% of the 27 away goals they conceded last season arrived after the 60th minute.|
|Players to watch: Lyon’s top scorer in 2018/19, Moussa Dembélé, netted the opening goal after only five minutes of play last weekend.|
|Angers will look to Thomas Mangani for inspiration. Each of his three goals last season arrived on the road (L1).|
|Stat attack: Lyon boasted a league-high average of 7.63 shots on target per home game last season.|
|No L1 side received fewer yellow cards on the road (27) than Angers last L1 campaign.|
|The opening goal has arrived before the 20th minute in each of the last four H2Hs held here.|
