Nice vs Lyon Match Preview

Lyon return to the Allianz Riviera just three days after knocking Nice out of the Coupe de France in dramatic circumstances.

After leading for almost 75 minutes through a Moussa Dembele goal, Lyon conceded a late equaliser scored by Adam Ounas. But as the game entered stoppage time, Lyon were awarded a penalty which Houssem Aouar converted to send them through to a quarter-final tie at home to Marseille.

On Sunday, battle is rejoined with Ligue 1 points at stake and there is no question Lyon are generally in the better form although most of their recent wins have been in the knockout competitions – they are also through to the League Cup final against Paris Saint-Germain.

But Nice are strong at home notwithstanding Thursday’s agonising late defeat for they had previously been beaten only twice in 13 matches on their own pitch this term – against the top two clubs in the league, PSG and Marseille.

There could be a debut here for Lyon’s new £18million Brazilian defensive midfield signing Bruno Guimaraes, who had been strongly linked with Arsenal before joining up with Rudi Garcia’s squad.

Recent history suggests there will be little to choose between these teams, but Nice’s fine home record against all but the very best French sides suggests they could be value to gain revenge for their cup exit.
