Atalanta vs. Olympique​ Lyon predictions, betting tips and match preview

With the two of these sides already through to the next round, changes are expected from both side as finishing 2nd is not such a bad position given their individual forms.

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

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

Atalanta have scored in all 5 of their matches in this competition so far while also conceding in all of those matches.

Atalanta have been involved in matches of over 2.5 goals at least 3 times so far.

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

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

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 match could be a goal fest.

Atalanta v Lyon Match stats 

Atalanta and Lyon booked their places in the last-32 of the UEFA Europa League before this final matchday and this encounter will decide who will go through in first place in Group E. This two teams are among the favourites to win the competition outright.

The only previous encounter between these two sides was the reverse fixture, which took place on matchday 2 in Italy (3-1). This was also Atalanta’s first European match ever against a French side.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are on a great run of five matches without a loss in the EL (W3, D2) and a 0-0 or 1-1 draw would guarantee them a first-place finish. However, a 2-2 or any draw with more goals would ensure Lyon finish as the top team in the group.

Atalanta sit top of Group E with 11 points. On the last matchday, Gasperini's men made a strong impression by winning on the road at Everton (5-1) – which was their biggest win in European cup competition in the club’s history. Currently tenth in Serie A, Atalanta have only won once in their last five matches (W1, D2, L2).

Lyon are currently in 2nd place in Group E and level on points with their opponents (11). On a nice run of 3 victories in this group, Bruno

Genesio’s side defeated Apollon 4-0 at home in the last round of EL matches. They currently sit second in Ligue 1 (L1) and have lost just once in their last 10 L1 matches (W6, D3, L1).

According to Genesio: “On Thursday, at Bergamo, we will need quality in the match and to create several great opportunities to grab the 1st place in the group”. However, Lyon will have work to break Atalanta’s defence, as the Bergamo side boast the highest average of interceptions per match of any team in the EL (18.6). Furthermore, the Italians are also very accurate offensively, particularly at home where they have the joint-highest average of shots on target par match in the competition (nine), level with Real Sociedad.

Lyon have scored at least 1 goal in each of their last 8 European away matches and 2 goals in their last 3 (home/away). 

Lyon have only won 1 of their last 5 away from home matches in the UEL and are winless in their last four trips to Italy (D1, L3).
