Lyon is looking for the first victory in 2018
Lyon finished 2017 with 4 consecutive victories in Ligue 1 , getting on the second position with the same number of points as Monaco. Tonight they will face Nancy, 16th in Ligue 2 , which is not at all in good shape and with a lot of injuries
Nancy vs Lyon
(Most recent H2H result: 14-42)
- We all know that cup games are pretty tricky to bet, it’s enough to take a look at today’s results but i think Lyon is a big value today against a team which tries to survive in Ligue 2. Few weeks ago Lyon lost his game vs Montpellier in Coupe de la Ligue, but this time is a different story, Coupe de France has more importance in the eyes of their president Aulas. Lyon is coming after a preparation stage in Murcia, Spain and their scorer Mariano Diaz seems to be injured and will miss this game along with Traoré which has issues since sometime ago. But that shouldn’t be a problem for Lyon, 2nd team from Ligue 1 versus 16th team in Ligue 2 with players like Depay, Fekir or Cornet should do easily the job.
- Nancy had a very difficult start of season and its place in Ligue 2 is in real danger. After an easy win against an amateur team in Coupe de France ( 6-1 vs Rungis ) and Tours in Ligue 2 (2-1) , they lost again in a home game against Paris FC. The mood over the team is pretty bad, they cannot count even on their supporters tonight, only few thousands are expected which is pretty bad for such a game and reflects exactly the situation of the team. With players like Youssouf Hadji or Pedretti, very experienced of course , but very aged also, i don’t think that Nancy will make a priority for this game. The Ligue 2 survival is what they have to fight for so i’m not expecting them to die on the field tonight.
- Lyon : Lopes – Tete, Marcelo, Morel, Marçal – Tousart, Ndombele – Aouar, Fekir, Memphis – Cornet (or Myziane)
Prediction: Lyon-1, odd 2.20
