Lyon vs Angers Match Preview

Lyon’s new Brazilian bosses on the sporting side made the perfect start to their tenure last week – and another victory looks set to come their way against Angers.

Bruno Genesio was replaced in charge of Les Gones this summer by former Arsenal and Barcelona left-back Sylvinho as head coach and ex-Lyon hero Juninho Pernambucano as technical director, both appointments coming as something of a surprise.

That’s because, in particular, this is Sylvinho’s first time in the driving seat, although he has been assistant manager of Cruzeiro, Inter Milan and the Brazil national team. But no questions were asked as Lyon stormed to a 3-0 opening Ligue 1 victory at Monaco last week.

After finishing third last season, 19 points behind champions Paris Saint-Germain, the obvious aim this time around will be to close the gap, perhaps win a domestic trophy and also reach the knockout stage of the Champions League, as Lyon did last term.

Angers, meanwhile, have now established themselves as a mid-table staple in the French top flight and began their fifth consecutive season at that level with a 3-1 home win over Bordeaux, overturning an early deficit with all the goals scored in the first half.

This is very much the honeymoon period for Sylvinho and Juninho at the Lyon helm and their team are well worth backing against inferior opposition such as Angers until signs of weaknesses emerge.
