Lyon vs Nice: Preview and Predictions

Lyon vs Nice French Ligue 1 Match 20th May 2017

Lyon vs Nice
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 20th May 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time / 21:00 CET
Venue: Olympique Lyonnais, Lyon.

Lyon have already secured 4th place no matter what happens and Nice have secured 3rd position but this still has all of the ingredients to be a tasty fixture and the clubs will want bragging rights. Hopefully both coaches will play full strength teams if so there will be plenty of quality on the pitch.

Lyon are a massive 11 points behind Nice, and although they have had their moments this season, ultimately by their standards it has been a disappointing campaign. This has been coupled with a Europa League exit at the semi final stages and the team look hungover so to speak.

Nice have been consistently brilliant for much of the season, their only fault in the end was that they were up against two better teams in Monaco and PSG. But Nice with their win over PSG recently proved just how strong they can be.

Lyon hasn’t lost for their last three games, however Nice come into this match in perhaps thir poorest form of the season having lost their last two matches.

Lyon vs Nice: Head to Head Stats

The last match here ended 1-1, earlier in the season Nice eased to a 2-0 win. Lyon have not won the last 2 games played against Nice and we have to go back to 2013 when they last won at home. This fixture has a history of having many goals in it.

Lyon vs Nice :Prediction

Nothing can change for these clubs so it is better to hope we will see an open and entertaining last game of the Ligue 1 season. We will look into over 3.5 goals for good value. Also keep an eye on Alexandre Lacazette, the talented forward may or may not be playing his final game for Lyon. He has been brilliant for them and could be a real danger in front of goal.
