Lyon hosts Nice in the first match of the 34th round of “Ligue 1”. The meeting is on Friday, April 15, 19:30 GMTand opposes the 2nd against 4th in the current standings.
Olympique Lyon progress to second place in the standings after losing Monaco last weekend and will try to hold this position. They meet one of the pleasant surprises this season – Nice, which also has ambitions to participate in the Champions League next season. in the last round, Les Gones record third consecutive victory in the ‘Ligue 1’ after outplaying Montpellier 2:0 as a guest. This was the fifth success for the team in the last six games and their good performance gives them a good chance to rank in the Top 3 five rounds before the end of the season.
Lyon is a series of five consecutive wins at home in the league and hopes of a new success on Friday night. In the last seven home games, they scored 21 goals, an average of three per game. If Bruno Genesio’s players again demonstrate that efficiency in attack, it is very likely to greet a success and move away five points Nice. The program team until the end of the season is not very difficult, so three points in this match can largely ensure new part of Lyon in the Champions League.
Nice won the battle for fourth place, beating Rennes 3:0 in the last round. Les Aiglons have a total of 53 points, just two less than occupants before them in the standings Monaco and Lyon. That is why the upcoming match is so important for them and if successful could open the door to wider participation in CL. In their last nine visits, Nice has only one victory – over Montpellier on March 12th with 2:0. During his last visit, Claude Puel’s troops fell by 1:4 against PSG and in Lyon will try to achieve a positive result.
Nice won their last two games against Lyon – 3:0 this season at home and 2:1 as a guest last campaign. But now Bruno Genesio’s side is in very good shape and I expect to outplay their guests who have quite personnel problems. Eventual success will strengthen Lyon in second place and expect graduates Bruno Zhenesio to earn three points.
