Nice vs Lyon Match Preview

Nice’s recent defensive record at home gives them an excellent chance of denying Lyon victory if they can maintain their solidity.

Since the start of November, St Etienne are the only visiting team to have scored at the Allianz Riviera and that was only good enough for a 1-1 draw.

Patrick Vieira’s side are unbeaten in the last eight matches on their own pitch and have played for 307 minutes without conceding a goal in front of their home fans.

They do not score a huge amount either, but they remain in contention for a return to the Europa League in which they reached the first knockout round last season.

Lyon, of course, have bigger fish to fry. A week on Tuesday they will play the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against Barcelona, while 72 hours before this match they faced Guingamp in the Coupe de France (result not known at the time of writing).

Les Gones enjoyed an excellent 2-1 home win last weekend against champions and clear leaders Paris Saint-Germain and they are vying with Lille to be the ‘best of the rest’ this term.

Bruno Genesio’s side have been in very good form, but Nice have had a clearer preparation for this game and with that superb record of keeping clean sheets at home recently they are backed to gain at least a point here.
