Lyon vs Nantes Preview and Predictions

Lyon vs Nantes French Ligue 1 Predictions 28th April 2018

Lyon vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 28th April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).

Lyon will be the big odds on favourite to make light work of underwhelming Nantes when they face the team on Saturday afternoon. On form Lyon have been the best side in the league where they have won 5 games in a row. With Monaco’s recent dip in form the side are now eyeing automatic Champions League qualification for 2nd place and are just one point behind them. At the same time Lyon has Marseille on the same points as them so we will have a very exciting finish to the league season.

At home Lyon have won 3 games in a row before this match and overall they have won 9 games from 16 and lost just two times. Although interestingly Lyon has a better away record than home.

Nantes have lost form just when they really needed it and are now 4 points adrift of 5th place for the last European placing. The club has slipped to 9th place as a result of no wins in their last five games and drawing their last two matches. Nantes have not won an away game this year and their form continues to be poor.

Lyon vs Nantes: Head to Head

  • When Lyon have been at home they have won the last 7 games in a row
  • Lyon have scored 9 goals against Nantes in the last 3 meetings
  • From the last 20 meetings only 2 games has finished 0-0 but never when Lyon was the home side

Lyon vs Nantes: Prediction

This should be a Lyon win but the odds are very short for them and do not offer us the value we need. Instead we will opt to see more goals in the first half as our main bet.

Lyon vs Nantes: Bet Tips

  • Highest scoring half: 1st half at 3.00
  • Anytime goalscorer: Memphis Depay (Lyon) at 2.05.
