Lyon vs Nice Match Preview and Prediction

Lyon vs Nice: Today at Groupama Stadium, Lyon and Nice will kick off French Ligue 1’s Matchday No. 22. Lyon will be more upbeat going into the tie. Last weekend, Les Gones won their third straight in a variety of tournaments. Pierre Sage’s team defeated Montpellier 2-1 on the road after pulling off a second-half comeback.

In the last ten games, Lyon has won eight of them in various competitions. It is evident that they have improved significantly in form following a disappointing first half of the season. Les Gones rose to 13th place in the rankings of Ligue 1. Can they defeat Nice, who are in second place, to continue their incredible run?

In the last four league games, Nice has only managed one victory. They fell behind PSG by eleven points at the top of the table after losing 2-3 at home to Monaco. The men of Francesco Farioli have recently had a lot of trouble traveling. Of their previous four away games in Ligue 1, they had three draws and three losses.

Who will win the match between Lyon and Nice?

We believe that Nice and Lyon have a good chance to win this, even though it’s difficult to predict who will win. This seems like it could go all-square, but we’ll have to wait and see. Therefore, our prediction is for a very close match that ends in a tie after 90 minutes.
