Game Week 4 of Ligue 1 brings us a duel between Nantes and Lion at Stade de la Beaujoire.


Last week’s duel allowed Nantes to move from the bottom of the league table and they are now sitting at the 15th place in the league table. They played away against Troyes, and fortune finally smiled on them. Even with a red card they managed to score a goal that brought them 3 points. The match ended 0 – 1, and that goal is the first one Nantes have scored since the beginning of the season. Because of the red card, Awaziem won’t be playing in the upcoming match against Lyon.


With two wins and a draw, that is, with 7 points, Lyon is currently sitting at the 4th place in the league table. Last week we witnessed an exciting duel. Lyon hosted Bordeaux and the match ended with a 3 – 3 draw. Lyon scored the first two goals, and they had been favourites. But, a red card was shown to Darder, who won’t be playing the upcoming match, and Bordeaux rightly took the advantage of the extra player. In the last 5 minutes of the match they scored the two goals they needed for the tie, thus securing themselves with a point.
