Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Manchester United vs Lyon

Manchester United

Manchester United, on the whole, played quite well last season, having managed to achieve the minimum goal of qualifying for the Champions League. Eric ten Hag 's team came third to the finish line, the Red Devils also had the opportunity to win the FA Cup, but stepped 1:2 in the Manchester City final.

So far, Manchester United have made only one high-profile transfer, having redeemed Mason Mount from Chelsea. The newcomer has already made his debut in a friendly against Leeds, where the Red Devils won 2-0 in Norway.


Lyon frankly failed last season. Having a very solid squad by the standards of the French Ligue 1, the "weavers" could not rise above the seventh line in the table. Thus, the seven-time winner of the French championship was left without European cups. At the same time, Laurent Blanc is still at the helm of the team.

So far, from the acquisitions of Lyon, it makes sense to single out only the experienced central defender Clinton Mato, bought out from Brugge, but at the same time, reinforcements will surely follow. Losses are much more significant - Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele left as free agents.
