Nice vs Lyon

  • 3 - 0
  • Played


Nice and Olympique Lyonnais face at Allianz Riviera, in a match for the 14th round of the Ligue 1. In 8 head‑to‑heads in the last 3 years, the away team won 4, tied 1 and lost 3. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 21‑03‑2015, and ended in a (1‑2) win by Nice. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 6th and 2nd of the league table, it’s also a match between the 17th best team in home matches and the 6th best in away matches.

Analysis of Nice

After 6 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, the home team is in the 6th position, havinf won 21 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Olympique Marseille by (0‑1), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑2) at home, against Nantes. Interestingly enough, this is a team that has had better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 14 points in away matches and only 7 at their stadium. For the league, Nice won 7 points out of 18 possible points, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 6 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 13 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2. In the last 7 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 7 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

Nice have a squad with great quality in all sectors. To this match is expected that the coach Claude Puel acts the usual 4-4-2, priming the defensive approach and the counter-attacks to the clash. It's important to note the squad availability to the french coach. In proeminent figure is the foward Ben Arfa that has already scored 7 goals this season.  

Confirmed Lineup: M. Hassen, P. Baysse, M. Le Marchand, R. Genevois, V. Koziello, J. Pied, N. Hult, J. Seri, H. Ben Arfa, N. Mendy, V. Germain.
Coach: C. Puel.

Analysis of Olympique Lyonnais

The away team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Troyes, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Saint‑Étienne, by (3‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, with 10 goals scored and 2 conceded at home, against 9 goals scored and 5 conceded in away matches. In the last 6 away league matches Olympique Lyonnais has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 11 points out of 18 possible. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90'); they have conceded 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Similarly to this match's opponent, it foresees Lyon act in a 4-4-2, however, giving emphasis to a more backed and prganized play style. Thus, it's expected Valbuena to be team creative and Lacazette the responsible man to struglle the opponent. The foward Lacazette has already scored six goals. 

Confirmed Lineup: Anthony Lopes, J. Morel, M. Yanga-Mbiwa, Rafael, M. Gonalons, C. Tolisso, Sergi Darder, M. Valbuena, J. Ferri, C. Beauvue, A. Lacazette.
Coach: B. Génésio.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is both teams to score at least one goal. We believe Lyon will take advantage of the best opportunities to decide the match, thus show a more consistent football.
However, the bet we recommend to this match is related to the sucessive defensive failures existing in both teams.
