Lyon 1/2 to beat Everton in Thursday’s Europa League battle
Competition: Europa League
Market: Lyon to beat Everton
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet365
The Europa League is back this week with a number of incredibly important games to come. While the Champions League takes most of the headlines with regard to European competitions, the Europa League remains an incredibly exciting and competitive competition. With this in mind, Everton seem to be in the last chance saloon in the group, and they travel to face Lyon on Thursday.
Lyon have been in fairly good form so far in the competition, remaining unbeaten in their three games so far. Two draws in their opening two games meant that their start was solid if unspectacular, but their win over Everton in their last game has seen them keep pace with Atalanta at the top of Group E. Another victory over Everton in France on Thursday would almost ensure the side of a place in the knockout rounds if Atalanta beat Apollon Limassol again.
Everton, on the other hand, have been abysmal this campaign. After three games they have taken just a single point and they find themselves six-points short of Atalanta at the top of the table. Just three goals scored is a poor return, while they have been awful at the back, conceding seven times already. With nine points still available, Everton can still make it out of the group, but they must beat Lyon on Thursday. However, at home, Lyon will fancy themselves, and Bet365 are giving the French side odds of 1/2 to beat Everton.
