Soccer predictions for Acca Bet, 9.August.2015
Arsenal v West Ham, prediction: 1
The Gunners start the season with confidence sky high after their Community Shield 1-0 win over champions Chelsea last weekend and for the first time for a while, they look like genuine title contenders this term.
Arsenal have goals from all over the pitch – the pre-season form of Mesut Ozil has been very impressive and so too has the goals of Theo Walcott; while the defence has been strengthened with the signing of goalkeeper Petr Cech.
The Gunners have won their last 9 league encounters with West Ham and are unbeaten in 14 (W12 D2).
Lyon v Lorient, prediction: 1
Lyon have to take the first steps towards recovering their reputation this Sunday after that 6-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Cup and then a 2-0 loss to PSG in the Champions Trophy.
OL will be able to count on Alexandre Lacazette, who is set to decline opportunities to move away from the club for whom he struck a Ligue 1-high 27 goals last season and pursue his promising partnership with Nabil Fekir.
Lorient finished just 6pts above the relegation zone last May and have sold 12-goal top scorer Jordan Ayew – who doubled up as their top assists provider – to Aston Villa. Lorient endured a poor pre-season up front, having scored only 3 goals in 6 friendly matches.
Lyon have won 5 of their last 6 home matches against Lorient in all competitions.
