Football Predictions

Manchester United will be taking on French Ligue One side Lyon in a pre-season friendly in Scotland on Wednesday.

It will be United’s second game of the preseason after opening their preparations with a comfortable 2-0 win over Championship side Leeds United in Norway last week. The game saw new signing Mason Mount make his debut for the Red Devils and Erik ten Hag is expected to pair him again with some notable faces in the Wednesday tie.

More first-team members arrived on the side this week and are expected to play a part in the Lyon game as United seek to build on their cohesion ahead of the new season.

Just like United, Lyon has also played one game in preseason where they dispatched De Treffers 2-1 last week and the tie against United should give them a clear picture of how they might fare in their league come next season. 


The two teams last met competitively in 2008, when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winner in a Champions League last-16 tie. Overall, Lyon has failed to win any of their four meetings, drawing two.

Team News

Marcus Rashford, Garnacho, Dalot, Bruno Fernandes, and Casemiro are all the first teamers who returned to training at the end of last week and should play some part in the game as ten Hag works on integrating new players like Mount into his system. Fred is an injury doubt and it remains unclear if Harry Maguire will play a part in the game after being stripped of the captaincy.

There are a few faces who are expected to be shipped before the summer closes with this lot including Scott McTominay. While a few youngsters are expected to play a part, Erik ten Hag should parade a more familiar team in this tie.

Lyon has roped in Clinton Mata and Skelly Alvero while there was a high-profile departure in Romain Faivre moving to Bournemouth. Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele left on a free transfer while Cenk Ozkacar and Thiago Mendes were sold. Lyon didn’t qualify for European competitions, so it is a good chance that the financial side of things could be tricky as the top brass is trying to strengthen the squad ahead of the new season. Currently, Maxence Caqueret is the only player ruled out of the United game due to injury.

Probable Line Ups

Man United XI: Henderson, Dalot, Martinez, Lindelof, Shaw, Casemiro, Mount, Fernandes, Rashford Garnacho, Sancho

Lyon XI: Lopes, Ndiaye, Diomande, Kone, Mata, Lepenant, Tolisso, Cherki, Adelaide, Sarr, Barcola.


United has had a knack for scoring goals under ten Hag but they concede too and Lyon will offer a threat. United should see this out comfortably if they are to parade their star but the possibility of conceding shouldn’t be ruled out.
