Lyon Preview – Can Lyon get back to winning ways?

Well, the hosts have a perfect opportunity to return to winning ways when they entertain Nimes at their Groupama Stadium as Lyon look to bounce back from their recent 2-1 defeat away from home at Montpellier, in their quest to improve upon last season’s disappointing 7th place finish in Ligue 1.

Lyon ended last season’s campaign with just two wins from their final seven matches and although they started this season off in emphatic fashion by recording a 4-1 home win over Dijon, Lyon have since been held to a 0-0 draw away at Bordeaux and lost at Montpellier.

However, Lyon now return to their home stadium for this clash with Nimes where they’re unbeaten in their last five matches and have lost just twice in their last 10 matches, so the hosts will be confident that they can bounce back with all three points on Friday night.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Nimes Preview – Can Nimes halt Lyon dominance?

It looks like there’s a tough task ahead of Friday’s visitors, Nimes, as they prepare for Friday night’s clash at Lyon especially as they’ve lost their last two league matches on the trot with defeats against Nantes 2-1 away and last weekend’s 4-2 loss at home to Rennes.

Indeed, Nimes seem to be unable to shake off last season’s disappointing finish to their French top flight campaign which saw them suffer three defeats on the trot to sign off in dismal fashion following defeats to Rennes, Marseille and most disappointing of all, Metz.

Results away from home make for even worse reading if you’re a Nimes fan as the visitors have picked up just one win out of their last 16 matches on their travels and this poor sequence of results on the road also include just two clean sheets, so further trouble looms for Nimes on Friday night I fancy.
