In their last Ligue 1 match against Nimes at home, Lyon was the dominant team with 73% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Lyon had no need for defense in this match, but they were still struggling in the attacking end, and they weren’t able to find a way to the net. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. Depay is the only goalscorer for Lyon with 4 goals so far. Reine-Adelaide is the only injured play for Lyon as of right now. Lyon is in a bad form, especially in the attacking end, and if they want to stay in the title race, Lyon must start scoring goals. Lyon is in danger of losing their captain and best player Memphis Depay to Barcelona, but as of right now, he is staying in Lyon because Barcelona doesn’t have the money to pay for him just yet. Lyon has scored only 1 goal in their last 3 games, and they better start scoring more if they want to get back on the winning track.
The trends are on Lyon’s side in this matchup, and they are the better team here. Lyon is the favorite here, and deservedly so, which is why I will stick with the away team, and that is Lyon.
