Lyon vs Nice Match Analysis and Prediction

Ligue 1 will return to the fold this Friday when Lyon welcomes Nice to  Groupama Stadium in the 15th round of the competition. Kickoffs at 23:00 EAT.

The home team is eighth in the table with 20 points, one point above Friday’s hosts. Lyon has had a rough ride, in their last six matches wining only twice. Lyon has already suffered six defeats domestically in 2022-2023, which is more than half of their total from a season ago when they lost 10 league fixtures and finished eighth.

Lyon will be hoping to bounce back after 1-0 Ligue 1 losing efforts to Marseille in their last outing. In that match, Lyon managed 54% possession and 11 shots with four of them on target. Marseille got six shots with two of them on target and a goal scored by Samuel Gigot (44′).

Meanwhile Nice are in a better form, however it is still well off the pace they set in the 2021-2022 campaign under Christophe Galtier having lost five matches in 2022-2023, two more than a season ago, and accumulating six fewer points so far this season. Nice has not lost in their last five matches and will want to keep it that way.

Nice will enter trhis meeting off the back of 1-0 Ligue 1 success to beat Brest in their previous game. In that match, Nice had 57% possession, 14 shots with nine of them on target and a goal scored Gaëtan Laborde (54′). Brest got 12 shots with two of them on target.
