Atalanta VS Lyon

Atalanta and Olympique Lyonnais face at Stadio Città del Tricolore, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). Atalanta registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Atalanta

After 3 wins and 2 draws, the home team is currently in the 1st position, with 11 points won. In the last match, they have won (1‑5) in an away match against Everton, after in the previous round they have tied (1‑1) in an away match against Apollon. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. In their last match, for the Serie A, they got an away tie against Torino by (1‑1). In the last 10 home matches Atalanta has won 8 and tied 2.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 5 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 5 of their 15 matches, and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 10 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 8 of their 21 goals between minutes (61'‑75'); they have conceded 3 of their 6 goals between minutes (16'‑30').

Atalanta enters the field for this game already classified for the next phase of the Europa League, but still seeking to maintain the leadership of its group. 
The team has not been making a great season, but is going through a good moment, being undefeated for three games, having won two of them. 
In its last match, valid for the Italian Championship, where it now occupies the tenth position among twenty teams, the team managed to conquer a draw away from home against Torino, although had missed many passes and failed in defensive terms. 
In the continental tournament, the Italians have been standing out for the good offensive power, since they have the best attack of Group E, having scored goals in all the matches until then. 
The coach is likely to keep the team in 3-4-2-1 or 3-5-2, with no major problems to define the initial eleven.

Confirmed Lineup: E. Berisha, M. Caldara, H. Hateboer, Rafael Tolói, L. Spinazzola, A. Masiello, J. Iličić, B. Cristante, A. Gómez, R. Freuler, A. Petagna.
Coach: G. Gasperini.

Analysis of Olympique Lyonnais

The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 11 points won, after 3 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match agaisnt Everton by (3‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Apollon by (4‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 36 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 37 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the Ligue 1, they got an away win against Caen by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Olympique Lyonnais has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 9 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 9 of them. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Lyon has also secured a place in the next round of the Europa League, but will enter the field trying to take the lead from the Italians. 
The team has been making a great season, having only suffered a defeat in the last fourteen matches, coming from another victory for the French Championship, where now it occupies the vice-leadership. At the time, the team showed a very consistent midfield and managed to win away from home against Caen. 
In the national championship, the team has been characterized by a great offensive system, but in the continental tournament the great highlight has been the defense, which is the least leaked of Group E, with three goals conceded in five games.
The 4-2-3-1 has been the tactical formation most used by coach Bruno Génésio, with Depay standing out in the offensive sector.

Confirmed Lineup: Anthony Lopes, Marcelo, Rafael, M. Diakhaby, F. Mendy, T. NDombèlé, J. Ferri, M. Díaz, N. Fekir, M. Cornet, M. Depay.
Coach: B. Génésio.

Betting suggestion:

This clash has a special character in this round of the Europa League, as it faces two teams that are already classified for the next phase of the competition. Both live similar realities within European football, but Lyon has been making a better season in the French Championship than Atalanta in the Italian Championship. 
In the last match between the two teams, the balance was evident, since it ended tied by (1-1), in the house of the French. 
Now we expect again a very balanced game, the draw being a good betting option, but with the favoritism for the home team.
