"Lyon" - "Nimes": meeting of the Olympians

Lyon

18/09/2020, at 19:00 GMT
France. League 1

Odds: 1.83

Nimes

Nimes have lost 8 of their last 10 matches. Lyon have won 6 of their last 10 home games. Nim has not won head-to-head matches since 1993. The last head-to-head match ended with the victory of Lyon (4:0).

Lyon

The seven-time French champion in the last championship, which was reduced due to the coronavirus, took only seventh place. The team did not have enough one point to get into the European competition zone. At the end of the season, the “children” played in the final of the National Cup, where they lost the trophy to PSG only in a penalty shootout.

Lyon performed very well in the Champions League, where they managed to reach the semi-final stage. At this stage, the “weavers” failed to cope with the Munich “Bavaria” (0:3), which eventually became the winner of the 2019/20 Champions League. At the start of the season, hosts beat Dijon (4:1), but already in the second round they lost points in the match with Bordeaux (0:0).

Last Tuesday the “aristocrats” lost to Montpellier (1:2) on the road and took an intermediate 11th position.

In the infirmary of the favorites are Mendes and Reine.

Nimes

During its 83-year history "N?mes" has never won gold medals in the French championship, but four times won the title of vice-champion of the country. Last year the team was saved from relegation by a miracle and a series of four victories, which resulted in the 18-th place in the League1 standings.

In preparation for the new tournament, Bernard Blancard's wards held four test matches, in which they did not win, but in the first round of the starting championship of the top division they beat Brest (4:0). In the next two stages, the "crocodiles" lost - "Nantes" (1:2) and "Rennes" (2:4), for which we made a forecast.

Valerio and Despres won't be able to play today.

Prediction

Last season the teams managed to play only one match, in which Lyon left no chance for their counterpart. Since then, little has changed in the composition of guests, who will fight for survival in this tournament as well.

In our opinion, Olympique Lyon outperforms the opponent in all lines and plays quite successfully at home. Most likely, "Nimes" will play defensively, hoping to keep the initial score, but it is unlikely that they can do it. We assume the success of the "aristocrats", on which we offer to play a bet.

Our prediction is that Lyon will win with a handicap (-1) and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBet with odds 1.83
