FC Nantes vs Olympic Lyonnais: Prediction and Betting Tips
Nantes looking to get back to winning ways
Eight-time French champions Nantes are looking for a better campaign after narrowly escaping relegation last season. In fact, The Canaries had to play a relegation playoff against Toulouse. And they only maintained their Ligue 1 position on away goals rule after drawing 2-2 on aggregate. Despite this, coach Kombouare kept his job and has looked to reinforce his squad.
The start was promising in the opening match of the season where Nantes drew 1-1 away to Monaco. Equally encouraging was their second outing when they beat Metz at home. However, the visit to Rennes wasn’t all that successful as Kombouare’s team suffered their first defeat. Now they have to get back to winning ways in front of their home crowd as they host Lyon.
Nantes Key Points
- Nantes scored in eight of their last ten matches
- The Canaries won two of their last four home outings
- Kombouare’s team had three clean sheets in the last ten matches
Olympique Lyonnais looking for their first win of the season
Lyon were frustrated in their last match against newly promoted Clermont. Surprisingly the Ligue 1 newcomers claimed a 91st-minute equalizer after the hosts were 2-0 up at the break. Consequently, this is L’oL’s worst start to a new Ligue 1 campaign since the 1992/93 season having drawn two and Lost one. Hence, coach Gastien is looking for his first win this season.
Obviously, the problem is with the Lyon defense. Indeed, six goals conceded in two matches is not healthy proof of Lyon’s defensive strategies. Moreover, the total of seven goals in the back of their own net means Lyon have their worst defensive record at this stage since the 1995/96 season. Coach Gastein will hope the acquisition of Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri can boost their attacking third.
Lyon Key Points
- BTTS happened in Lyon’s three of four away games
- Lyon conceded on average two goals per game in their last four away games
- L’OL have no clean sheets in their last ten matches
