It is match day once again! Everton’s boys in blue need three points desperately. A draw would be bad, but a loss would be absolutely crushing. Can they get the win? Sure, it could happen. I mean, there are only three possible outcomes. A win is realistic, and Lyon have a healthy number of injuries, if that makes sense. Will it happen? Dude, I don’t know. Just watch the game; I’m freaking out over here.
