Betting Tips for the game
Lyon’s form over the past month have been a complete mixed bag with five wins, four defeats and one draw in their last ten games across all competitions. Les Gones suffered an unexpected 1-0 away defeat at Reims a week ago, but bounced back with a solid 2-0 home win against Strasbourg at the weekend. That was their second home victory of the season and are now on a nine-game winning streak in front of their own fans.
On the other hand, Nice enter the fray on the back of a seven-game winless streak across all competitions. Their start into this new season has been terrible with two defeats and one draw in the opening three league fixtures. Last weekend, Nice were humiliated at home by Dijon, losing 0-4. Nice also looked poor on the road over the past four months, having won just once in their last nine trips.
This should be an easy game for Lyon as they have been in great shape at home, while Nice managed just one win in their last nine away fixtures. Our betting tips and predictions would back the Asian Handicap -1, -1.5 on Lyon at odds 1.72.
