Nice vs Lyon Match Preview & Team News
The home side enjoys an excellent start to the campaign, as they are fifth, being just two points behind the second-placed Lens and with one game in hand. Christophe Galtier took over the bench after winning the title with Lille, and he managed to improve Nice’s game. Although the hosts are far from the title race since PSG has been very dominant, they are among the candidates for a Champions League spot. Amine Gouiri and the lads have been very good in front of the oppositions’ net, while Nice has the best defense in Ligue 1. They conceded only five goals so far, and only Monaco scored more than a goal against them. They now face a direct rival for the top three, and Nice will search for valuable three points.
Lyon had a poor start of the season, but the away side managed to improve its game lately. They head to this match after beating Sparta Prague 4:3 on the road in the Europa League in a thrilling clash. Although Peter Bosz’s team trailed at halftime, they turned around the result scoring three times in the second half. Lyon hasn’t lost six times in a row in all competitions, and they missed a chance to win only twice during that period. The visitors have the same number of points as their upcoming rivals, but they haven’t been that confident on the road. Lucas Paqueta and the lads have celebrated just once away from home in Ligue 1 so far, and they need to do much better to get back home from Nice with a win.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be an interesting clash, and both teams have a chance to remain undefeated in this clash. We wouldn’t be surprised if this clash ends in a draw, but Nice might be a slight favorite at the home ground, as they have been more consistent this season. Therefore, we’ll back the hosts at the DNB market.
Goals Market Prediction
Nice has been very hard to crack this season, while they have been doing very well in the final third. On the other hand, Lyon has been involved in high-scoring matches very often, and we could see goals in both nets in this encounter. Neither side managed to keep the clean sheet in their last five clashes.
