  • Venue: Lotto Park (Bruxelles (Brussel))

An entertaining friendly contest can be expected on Saturday as Belgian side Anderlecht takes on French outfit Lyon at Lotto Park in Brussels. 

Goals can usually be expected when Lyon is in action, and the French side arrives in Belgium having seen over 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 11 matches since mid-April, including all 3 of their pre-season friendly fixtures.

On the road, each of their last 5 have gone over 2.5 goals with 21 goals scored in those 5 matches, and another entertaining friendly seems likely with Anderlecht playing their first friendly of the new season in front of their home support. 

As with all pre-season friendlies, we always recommend low stakes, and that assertion can be doubled down on here with Anderlecht not seeing as many goals in their recent fixtures with only 3 of their last 8 seeing over 2.5 goals scored.

Still, Lyon are always good in the goal markets, and with both sides still looking to build up pre-season fitness, this game will likely see goals at both ends, with Lyon perhaps having too much quality in the final third.

Final score 2:3
