📊 Form Guide

Lyon LWLWDL

Lyon won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 2-1 Ligue 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Montpellier.

In that game, Lyon had 56% possession and 19 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Lyon was Memphis Depay (82'). Montpellier had 10 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Téji Savanier (38', 59') scored for Montpellier.

It has not been often in recent games that Lyon have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Lyon have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 9 goals in the process. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern might persist here in this game.

Going into this encounter, Lyon haven't been defeated in their previous 5 league matches at home.

Nîmes LLLWLL

After a losing effort in their last game against Rennes in Ligue 1 competition, Nîmes will be hoping to turn things around here.

In that match, Nîmes had 45% possession and 17 shots at goal with 9 on target. For Nîmes, the goals were scored by Adrián Cubas (36') and Zinedine Ferhat (55'). At the other end, Stade Rennais FC had 10 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Serhou Guirassy (12', 39'), Nayef Aguerd (72') and Benjamin Bourigeaud (97') scored for Rennes.

Showing their penchant for eventful matches, goals have been scored 24 times in the prior 6 games in which Nîmes have taken to the pitch, giving a mean average of 4 goals each fixture. Their opponents have hit 13 of these goals.

Heading into this contest, Nîmes have not won away from home in their last 3 matches in the league.

↔️ Head to head

The previous league match between the two was Ligue 1 match day 17 on 06/12/2019 which ended up with the score at Nîmes 0-4 Lyon.

On that day, Nîmes managed 21% possession and 6 shots at goal with 2 on target.

At the other end, Lyon got 22 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. Memphis Depay (16', 64'), Houssem Aouar (71') and Joachim Andersen (79') scored.

The match was refereed by Oliver Thual.

🗞️ Team News: Lyon

Lyon boss Rudi Garcia will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all coming into this game owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.

It’s our opinion that Lyon should employ a 3-4-3 system for this game, handing starts to Anthony Lopes, Jason Denayer, Marcelo, Joachim Andersen, Maxwel Cornet, Maxence Caqueret, Bruno Guimarães, Léo Dubois, Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembele and Karl Toko Ekambi.

🗞️ Team News: Nîmes

Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Nîmes boss Jérôme Arpinon to be concerned with. Clément Depres (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.

It’s our belief that Les Crocodiles appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Baptiste Reynet, Renaud Ripart, Loick Landre, Sidy Sarr, Gaëtan Paquiez, Adrian Andres Cubas, Anthony Briançon, Zinedine Ferhat, Yassine Benrahou, Nolan Roux and Kévin Denkey.

🧠 Prediction

It looks to us that Lyon will more than likely be able to score a couple when they meet Nîmes, who might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves.

We’re tipping a controlled 2-0 win for Lyon at the conclusion of the game.
