Nice – Olympique Lyon, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NICE - LYON
Nice lost a catastrophic visit to Lille, and with that very much reduced their chances for the top 3. Now, however, if they win against Lyon, the difference between them and the kids who are third will again become 6 points, but that means Nice will must approach more offensive. This is something we are not used to from Viera’s team this season. After all, hardly the top 3 is a realistic goal for them.
Lyon continued their brilliant form and defeated Guingamp relatively easily for the cup during the week. Meanwhile, in the League has three consecutive wins and is already chasing the second place, which gives the right to participate directly in the UCL group, and in the last round won against PSG after a comeback. Lyon is very aggressive in their away games, but lately they have seen a little more tactical and closed football than they did before.
Nice is extremely defensive this season, and despite Lille’s loss, they are not a team that allows their rival to create many chances. At the same time, Lyon is a very important victory, but the kids want to perform well and defend good. In the last game, Nice defeated 1-0 as a guest of Lyon and the kids are a bit tired of their match on Thursday. We do not think we will see many goals in this match and our prediction is Under 3.0 goals AGL at 1.60
- In 8 of 11 games for Nice, there were under 3 goals
