Lyon vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.

Lyon continue to be impressive and the club can ill afford to drop points in midweek with the top of the league so close and congested.

At the weekend Lyon did what they had too and beat Nice away from home 4-1. This result put the club into 2nd place on 33 points and it has been a long time that we come in December and Lyon are ahead of PSG.

Lyon are just 1 point behind the league leaders Lille and have earned a terrific 13 points from their last 15, they have only lost once so far. At home they are unbeaten although a 3 game winning streak came to an end in their last match here as they drew 2-2 against Brest.

Nantes drew 1-1 in the derby v Angers last weekend, but have been poor overall and have no wins from their last five matches. They are in 15th place and have 15 points and away from home their record is not good with just one victory from 8 and they have lost back to back ones coming into this encounter.

Lyon vs Nantes: Head to Head

  • Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Nantes.
  • Nantes have won the last 2 fixtures.
  • There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.

Lyon vs Nantes: Prediction

Lyon are around 1.25 to win this game which gives us no value to back them. At the same time Nantes have had some good results against them, but it is true we expect Lyon to not only win but score a few goals also.

This is why to find value we will back Lyon to win on the handicap which will put the price back in our favour.

Lyon are looking brilliant and have great form and are scoring goals, they have the chance to go top of the league too and look very focused. Nantes will have their chances but they do look very average this season, we would be surprised if they got anything from this match.

Lyon vs Nantes Betting Tips:

  • Handicap: Lyon to beat Nantes with a -1 goal start at 1.83 (5/6)
  • Lyon to score 3+ goals at 2.50 (6/4).
