Nice vs Lyon: One of the sensation teams of Ligue 1 last season…
Nice, hosts Lyon on a match of the 14th round of the top tier of French football. Nice, with a tough start to the season, is fighting to avoid relegation.
As for Lyon, they are comfortable in 3rd place behind the colossus PSG, who occupies the 1st place, and only 3 points behind Monaco, who is 2nd.
Despite Nice currently being on a 3-match unbeaten streak, they have lost 6 out of their last 10 matches.
Going through a serious crisis of confidence, the team led by Lucien Favre will have a very tough opponent ahead of them here.
I should also note that, despite the fact that 5 of the 7 opponents Nice faced at home are in the bottom half of the league table, this team was only able to get 3 wins and 1 draw. However, I should also highlight their 4-0 win over Monaco.
Balotelli is still the team’s biggest offensive asset, already having scored 6 goals in 8 matches. Along with the Italian, we also can’t ignore the youngster Pléa who already has 3 goals. Koziello and Seri are two other important players, especially balancing the midfield of this team.
Lyon is making an immensely consistent campaign in this edition of Ligue 1. After an unstable start, Génésio’s team is already unbeaten on their last 11 matches, recording 7 wins and 4 draws during that period.
The two highlights were the wins against Monaco and Everton. On the present edition of the league, they only have 1 loss so far, against the almighty PSG.
The team’s attractive football is remarkable. Player like Depay, Fékir and Diaz cause chaos on the opposing defences, and the 32 goals scored this season are a good example of that.
Nice vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite playing away from home, I think that Lyon has more than enough weapons to get the 3 points in the bag on their return home.
The consistency shown on the last matches make me believe on a win. If it will be sweaty or not, only time can tell.
