Lyon will look for their 4th consecutive win in Ligue 1 when they host Nantes at the Groupama Stadium on Saturday evening. Lyon picked up a comfortable 0-3 victory on the road at Dijon on Tuesday thanks to a brace from Moussa Dembele and another goal from Martin Terrier. On the contrary, Nantes lost 1-2 at home against Nice, with their consolation goal being scored by Emiliano Sala. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Lyon have been on fire over the past two weeks, having won each of their last three competitive fixtures. They beat Manchester City in the Champions League and followed this up with back-to-back wins against Marseille and Dijon in Ligue 1. At home, Les Gones have only lost two of their last 15 games across all competitions, while winning twelve.
Nantes, on the other hand, have won just one of their opening seven games in Ligue 1. They are currently on a three-game winless streak in the league, including a 1-2 home loss against Nice in midweek. Nantes are currently second from the bottom in the standings, two points behind safety. In addition, Nantes aren’t regarded as good travellers, having lost four of their last six league trips.
Lyon have been in fantastic shape of late and they should be able to secure an easy win here. Our betting tips and predictions expect Lyon to win to Nil at odds 2.05.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Although Lyon have been scoring goals for fun this season, we can’t see a high-scoring affair here. Nantes have been in poor shape this season, but they haven’t conceded more than two goals in their last three league games. Our total goals prediction expect under 2.5 goals at odds 2.25.

First Goalscorer odds
Bertrand Traore has been Lyon’s talisman in this early part of the new Ligue 1 campaign as he leads the club’s goalscoring charts with four goals under his belt. He has been quiet in midweek, but we fancy him to get back to goalscoring ways here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Bertrand Traore at odds 6.50.
