Nantes vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
Friday, at 19:45, Nantes will receive a visit to Olympique Lyon, in a match for the 32nd round of Ligue 1. The game will take place at the “Stade de la Beaujoire” in Nantes.
With 15 defeats recorded in 30 stages, that is, exactly half of the matches played so far, lost, Nantes goes through a bad period again. Ciprian Tatarusanu’s team suffered three failures in the previous three stages and, following this downward trend, approached seven points of the relegation zone, a distance that could be considered a bit worrying. In vain Tatarusanu defended two penalties in the last week in the Cup match with PSG (0-3) and against Toulouse (0-1). Nantes did not matter offensive, the parade of the Roman goalkeeper was in vain, and the team could seriously suffer in this season’s end if they continue to evolve in the same manner.
On the other side, Lyon is set to get all three points on Stade de la Beaujoire. Bruno Genesio’s band made it inexplicable last weekend, losing to Dijon on the home ground, 1-3, after opening the score as early as the first minute. And for Lyon there are a few reasons to care. Lille departed to five points in 2nd place battle, providing direct qualification in the UEFA Champions League. On the other hand, St. Etienne was six points behind Lyon, a still recoverable distance.
In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, Lyon imposed five times, Nantes only once, while the other four duels ended in a draw;
Nantes’s previous success in front of Lyon dates back to January 2015, from a 3-2 home record in the 16th Hearts of the French Cup;
The last direct match took place on the “Olymp Olympique Lyonnais”, when the two teams drew, score 1-1;
Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a spectacular hostile run. By taking a duel in which Lyon will start playing from the start, trying to take control of the game, we think Nantes will not act passively in this regard, trying as much as possible to keep up with the offensive of the guests.
