Lyon vs Nantes Match Preview
Lyon have struggled to impress defensively and this has proven costly on more than one occasion, as Brest (2-2) found the late equalizer on Wednesday and extended their six-match winless streak across competitions – where earning just three Ligue 1 points set them back in attempts to keep up with the pace-setters.
Les Gones saw PSG (0-1) snatch a very narrow win at Groupama Stadium and obviously struggled to recuperate, despite proving themselves a very tough side to beat. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and Sylvinho struggled to find a cure, which sees great pressure mounting.
Nantes will hope to capitalize and they have been in a better place lately, where they bagged a narrow 1-0 win over Rennes and returned to the winning ways with their fourth in five outings. They’ve only seen Strasbourg (2-1) interrupt the streak and we feel they’ll be in great spirits once again.
However, Canaries have seen more troubles at the back when away from home and this could be more worrying. They’ve conceded five goals in three trips and earned just three points along the way, with a loss at Lille (2-1) and a win at Amiens (1-2) also on the records early in the campaign.
We thus feel Lyon will now be able to secure the points and finally return to the winning ways in front of the home fans, as we go for a Home win at 1/2 with William Hill. We have seen them a lot tougher here and we expect them to outgun the visitors on Saturday.
With that in mind, we are hoping for goals and we’ll thus also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 6/5 with Paddy Power. We have seen both sides scoring as well as conceding on the regular and this feels like a great value and possibly the best approach to the fixture.
