Arsenal vs Lyon Predictions

Arsenal continue their preparations for the new Premier League campaign this weekend as they take on Olympique Lyonnais in the Emirates Cup. Every summer the Gunners invite clubs to their stadium to play in a pre-season tournament although this year the format is slightly different, with the women’s team playing Bayern Munich before the men’s side take on Lyon later on the same day, rather than the usual four-team competition.

Over in the USA, Unai Emery’s men picked up wins over Colorado Rapids, Bayern Munich and Fiorentina but were beaten on penalties by Real Madrid. A couple of new signings have been made since they arrived back in England and they will now face Lyon, Angers and Barcelona in the Joan Gamper Trophy before the campaign finally gets underway at Newcastle on Sunday August 11th. You can back the home win here at 13/20 with Unibet.

Olympique Lyonnais surprised a few people last season with their performances in the Champions League and they will hoping to continue progressing this season and cut the deficit from the dominant PSG at the top of the table. It won’t be easy though, as les Gones have done what they always do and sold some key starters this summer including Tanguy N’Dombele to Tottenham Hotspur and Nabil Fekir to Real Betis.

Sylvinho’s men have played two friendlies so far against Servette and Genoa, two games they have lost despite being favourites to win, although performances are often more important than results in these fixtures. They’ll play two more times in England, facing Liverpool and AFC Bournemouth, before the Ligue 1 campaign kicks off, so can they earn a first win of pre-season in North London at 10/3 with Unibet.

With less emphasis on defensive structure and preparation, friendly fixtures can often be high-scoring affairs and we expect the same here. Arsenal have the home advantage and have been in better form during the pre-season fixtures so far, but defensively they remain vulnerable under Unai Emery and after losing their first two friendly games, but scoring in both, we’re backing Lyon to score and lose again here at 2/1 with Bet365.
