Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Brest, Olympique Lyon will be looking to start a new winning run in the Ligue 1 when they take on Nice at Allianz Riviera on Saturday evening. Les Gones are only two points behind league leaders PSG, and, no doubt, they are eager to stay in the title race. Memphis Depay, who came as a substitute and scored from the penalty spot in the midweek clash, is pushing for a start.
Thiago Mendes returns from suspension. Les Aiglons, on the other hand, are hit by injuries, with all Dolberg, Lees Melou, Maolida, Dante, Danilo, and Atal missing the Lyon game. Former Man Utd midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is sidelined through suspension, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. In their last meeting in the French top flight Nice defeated Lyon 2-1, meaning that the les Gones are hungry for revenge.
