Reason For Lyon vs Nice Betting Tips

Rudi García was invited to a UEFA event for some of the top coaches in Europe over the international break but his team hardly showed this calibre as they were beaten 2-1 by rivals Marseille away from home. It was an extremely disappointing performance from Lyon as they really failed to turn the screw in the last 25 minutes of the match despite their opponents going down to ten men. This type of result had been a long time coming as Lyon haven’t shown a lot of defensive security since García’s arrival six matches ago, despite winning the three games prior to the Marseille defeat.

Lyon have kept just two clean sheets in the six matches under García and with seven goals conceded in that time, it’s clear where they need to improve as their attack has continued to be rather impressive with ten scored in this time. Lyon’s home form had been pretty disastrous before García joined but it has improved since with two wins and a draw. However, with Benfica being the only real team of quality in those three games, a team with an awful away record in the UCL, they are still to be really tested under García at the Groupama and Nice could pose quite the issue for Lyon. 

Nice may have been a force to reckon with last season but it has been a different story this time round as they currently sit in 13th. They have just the one win in their last eight games but slightly turned a corner in their two games before the break with a win over Reims (2-0) and a draw against Bordeaux (1-1). These opponents have been in fine form this season so these results need to be respected, however Nice generally haven’t been able to replicate those types of performance away from home and that could damage them here. 

Last season Nice were notorious for their ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ performances when comparing their home and away form and the remnants of that can still be seen in this campaign. Of their 17 points collected this season, 11 of them have come at home and they could be in for a shock here as they have lost each of their last five away games. 

Neither team approach this match in glittering form but we’re backing Lyon to get the three points in this one. Nice have been awful away from home while the hosts have been considerably better in front of their own fans since the arrival of García. We see both teams scoring in this match though as that market has won in four of Lyon’s last five games and in three of Nice’s last five. Nice have also scored five goals in their last three games so we can see the visitors getting on the scoresheet in this one. Ultimately though we’re backing it to end 2-1 to the home side.
