Lyon vs Atalanta – UEFA Europa League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Lyon vs Atalanta

Lyon vs Atalanta – Lyon hosts Atalanta at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, Décines-Charpieu on 28th September, Thursday in a UEFA Europa League match.

Atalanta are placed top of Group F in the UEFA Europa League courtesy their 3-0 win over Everton in the first game. Lyon, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw against Apollon Limassal.

Neither of the clubs were favorite to top the group, especially with the high-spending Everton drawn into Group E, but Ronald Koeman’s side’s poor form has ensured both Lyon and Atalanta stand a chance to qualify.

Team News

Pape Cheikh misses out due to an injury while Memphis Depay will face a late fitness test. The visitors will be without the injured Rafael Toloi and Josip Ilicic.

Lyon Possible Starting Lineup: Anthony Lopes, Rafael, Marcelo, Jeremy Morel, Fernando Marcal, Lucas Tousart, Jordan Ferri, Maxwell Cornet, Nabil Fekir, Memphis Depay, Mariano.

Atalanta Possible Starting Lineup: Etrit Berisha, Mattia Caldara, Jose Luis Palomino, Andrea Masiello, Hans Hateboer, Brian Cristante, Remo Freuler, Marten de Roon, Leonardo Spinazolla, Andrea Petagna, Alejandro Gomez.

“Houssem Aouar played an intelligent match [against Dijon] and made some promising choices. He showed that his technique is sublime. He has character and we saw his personality. He is on the way up. We give our youngsters a lot of responsibility.”

– Gerard Baticle, Lyon.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Lyon vs Atalanta H2H Stats, these two clubs have never faced each other before in a competitive fixture.

Lyon have won only one of their last six games in all competitions, although only one of them resulted in a loss but the Ligue 1 club’s inability to close games might come back to haunt them against Atalanta who showcased some amazing football in their inaugural Europa League game of the season.

It should be a closely contested affair with a 2-2 draw being the most likely result.

KENYA Mcadido Lyon can manage to handle the pressure of Atlanta foreal .....this season Atlanta have played really well and Lyon looking for their second win in seven...I don't see them picking all the 3 points here and I'm going for a draw....
