Olympique Lyonnais – Amiens SC
Olympique Lyonnais hosts Amiens SC in a match from the 1st round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s examine this game in our winning soccer predictions for today.
The last season was successful for Olympique Lyonnais. Les Gones finished 3rd in the league standings, which allowed them the right to play in the Champions League. They finished just one point above Olympique Marseille, so it was a close fight. Lyonnais won 23 of their 38 matches in the league and lost just 6. They also scored 87 goals, which was the second best achievement after the champion PSG.
During the summer Olympique Lyonnais were pretty quiet on the transfer market. The club bought the central midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Amiens SC, while the centre back Oumar Solet was brought in from Stade Laval. Maybe OL are still not done on the transfer market, so we shall expect something to happen until the end of the month. For the club it’d be very important to keep its star player Nabil Fekir, who is wanted by some top clubs from Europe.
In the same time Willem Geubbels was sold to Monaco, while Mouctar Diakhaby moved to Valencia. Sergi Darder (Espanyol), Jean-Philippe Mateta (Mainz 05), Nicolas N’Koulou (Torino) and Aldo Kalulu (Basel) are other players who left the club.
Last season Amiens SC finished 13th in the Ligue 1 with 45 points won. Their primary target was survival, so we can say that it was a successful season for them. Now their goal would be pretty much similar – to keep their place in the elite division.
On the transfer market Amiens signed a new striker, buying the Colombian Juan Ferney Otero from Estudiantes. In the same time Matthieu Dreyer and Rafal Kurzawa were signed as free agents.
