Nice vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 2nd February 2020

Nice will be looking to go 6 games without defeat when they welcome Lyon on Sunday afternoon.

The club are in 12th place but are just four points from 4th, though they are not losing games they keep drawing and that is what is holding the club back at this time.

They have drawn 3 of their last four games including back to back ones coming into this one. At home they have lost just twice, and recent form is good here they have won 6 from their 11 games so far.

Lyon are starting to find form at last and have moved up to 5th place with 32 points, they come here after winning back to back games and their last match ended in an easy 3-0 win over Toulouse. They also have the 2nd best away form in the league having gained 18 points from a possible 33 and they haven’t lost on the road since last November when Marseille defeated them.

Nice vs Lyon: Prediction

This is set to be a close game, but Lyon are playing their best football of their season and they have the better team. They will need to impose themselves early on, but we will be backing them to get all three points here and try to challenge for European places.

Maxwell Cornet for Lyon has done well for the club lately in the cups and he should be able to push more for a regular start in the league. We will also back him to get a goal here if he is given the chance and it is best to check the final team news before.
