Atalanta vs Lyon Preview

Atalanta vs Lyon

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Città del Tricolore

Date: 7th December 2017

Kick-off time – 18:00 GMT

With the two of these sides already through to the next round, changes are expected from both side as finishing second is not such a bad position given their individual forms.

These two sides have played some of the most exciting football in this competition and with nothing to play for, expect a very exciting game full of attacking endeavours from both sides.

These sides have shown that they do not mind attacking even if it leaves them exposed at the back and this could be a game that both teams will fancy their chances of scoring.

Atalanta have scored in all five of their games in this competition so far while also conceding in all of those games.

They have been involved in games of over 2.5 goals at least three times so far.

Lyon on the other hand have also scored in all of their group games to date and at least 3.0 goals have been scored in 3 or more of the French side’s games.

When these sides met in the first leg, the 1-1 score line did not reflect how many chances were created in that game.

Lyon were guilty of missing a host of chances, while Atalanta also got in on the act before finally getting an equaliser.

With both of these teams not famed for their defensive ability, this game could be a goal fest.
