Lyon will return home after an enthralling 3-3 draw with Lille, welcoming Nantes, who also held Nice to a 2-2 draw at home. It’s round 28 of the 2022/23 Ligue 1 campaign, and the match will be held at the Groupama Stadium, Décines-Charpieu, France. Kick-off time is slated for 8:00 PM (UTC).
Lyon have been quite inconsistent this season but have recently picked themselves up. They sit in 10th place with 40 points. Lyon have been on a good run, winning six of their last 11 games and losing just one.
On the other hand, Nantes are 14th, having amassed 29 points from their 27 matches so far. Their form isn’t great, either. They have just one win from their last seven games.
Both teams have a few major injury concerns to worry about. First-choice goalkeeper, Anthony Lopes, won’t be starting in between the posts for Lyon due to a broken finger. Jérome Boateng and Malo Gusto won’t be available due to injury as well.
Andy Delort has scored two goals for Nantes; they came clutch to take them through the next round in the Coupe De France. Delort will be missing the match due to a calf injury. Charles Traoré, Coco and Quentin Merlin will also be missing the game.
Given how tricky the goals option is, our pick for today is a straight win for Les Gones. The odds for a home win is 1.71 (-140 American; 71/100 Fractional).
Reason: Aside from Lyon’s impressive form, they are unbeaten in their last five home games. On the other hand, Nantes have amassed only one win in their last five away games. Besides, Lyon have only lost once against Nantes in nine games at the Groupama Stadium.
