Lyon vs. Nice – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 23.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Lyon have lost their last home Ligue 1 game against Nice (0-1 in August 2018), but they haven’t lost two home Ligue 1 games in a row against this opponent since March 1952-August 1955 (3).

Olympique Lyonnais’ 2-0 home win versus Metz in their last Ligue 1 (L1) home outing saw them put an end to a four-game winless run on home soil in the league (D2, L2). In fact, Lyon’s last five league games at Groupama Stadium have featured under 2.5 goals. Moussa Dembélé (LYO) is the joint-leading scorer in L1 with nine goals so far, six of which came of which came before the break. Rudy Garcia’s men possess L1’s fourth-best home defensive record, after conceding an average of 0.50 goals per home fixture to date. Furthermore, fans can expect a tight defensive display before the break, with Lyon being the only L1 side not to concede a goal at home in the first half.

Lyon are yet to score a league goal at home in the last 15 minutes of their matches this season. Nice are yet to concede a goal in the opening 15 minutes of an away game this L1 campaign. The last four L1 H2Hs have seen the away side on the day go into the interval with a cleansheet.

Visitors Nice enter this game on a dreadful run of four straight L1 losses on the road, while failing to score in the last two. In a stat that implies there will be entertainment here, two of the last three L1 H2Hs held here have featured over 4.5 goals. Wylan Cyprien (NIC) has netted four goals in L1 so far, going down as his team’s first scorer in his four goalscoring games to date. ‘Les Aiglons’ can take confidence from their recent efficiency in front of goal. That efficiency is quantified by the fact that 25 of their 55 shots in away matches have been on target, constituting the highest shots-on-target rate (45.45%) in the away league table.
