nice vs lyon Tip Reason:

Lyon are in fine form with seven wins in their last eight matches in all competitions, scoring 26 goals along the way. The visitors have also been solid on the road recently with five wins in their last six. Lyon have just three clean sheets in their last 20 matches, though, and face a Nice side who have lost just twice at home all season. Both teams have scored in seven of the hosts’ last 10 matches as well as six of Lyon’s last eight. Nice’s home comforts Nice’s home advantage proved crucial again last week as they kept up their fantastic reputation at the Allianz Riviera. Ever since Patrick Vieira joined as manager they have turned their stadium into a fortress with many teams struggling to take points from them at home. Rennes were another one for the list last Friday as the third-placed side in Ligue 1 could only draw 1-1. Nice have lost just two matches at home this season in all competitions and they came against PSG and Marseille, the teams currently sitting first and second in Ligue 1 respectively. Even in those games they performed very well and they’ll be confident in their abilities despite Lyon coming to town. Les Aiglons have won six and drawn two of their last eight home matches with convincing wins coming against Reims (2-0) and Metz (4-1) in that time. They have conceded five goals in this period but with two of them coming from the penalty spot, they are very assured at the back. Nice have never really been known for their attacking prowess under Vieira but that hasn’t been the case in recent weeks. They’ve scored 23 goals in their last 13 matches and will be looking to keep that up against Lyon. However, Nice haven’t had the best record against les Gones in recent clashes so will need to really be on their ‘A’ game if they want to progress to the next round. Lyon scoring for fun Lyon have also been in some fine form ahead of this match. Les Gones have won seven of their last eight matches in all competitions with a whopping 26 goals being scored in this time. Even with the injury to Memphis Depay, Lyon have managed to continue scoring and attacking with a clinical edge and Nice could be their next victim. Lyon have a good record on the road with five wins and a draw in their last six away games but les Gones’ defence could hold them back here. They have kept just three clean sheets in their last 20 matches in all competitions and with these all coming against teams of a very poor stature, like relegation-favourites Nimes (4-0) and Toulouse (3-0) as well as third-tier Bourg-en-Bresse (7-0), they could continue to struggle against this Nice side with an eye for goal. Both teams to get on the scoresheet on the Riviera? As much as Nice have been playing well recently, they face a very good Lyon side here, who have been bolstered by the addition of Karl Toko Ekambi; he scored on his debut against Toulouse last week. The visitors have been scoring for fun and, with so many victories recently, we are backing them to get the win here. Lyon won 2-1 when these teams last met in November despite playing over 50 minutes with a man disadvantage and we expect them to get a similar result. However, Nice should give them a battle and with both teams scoring in seven of the hosts’ last 10 matches as well as six of Lyon’s last eight, we see this one finishing 2-1.
