Nimes vs Lyon – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 06.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Nîmes come into this game winless in their last three Ligue 1 (L1) home fixtures (D2, L1), and will likely be nervous to face Lyon considering that they have lost both H2Hs last season, conceding the opener within 25 minutes each time. However, if they claim all three points expect a cleansheet – the hosts have kept one in each of their last five competitive victories. A good start would help towards achieving that, especially as ‘Les Crocodiles’ have won ten of the last 12 L1 home games in which they netted the opening goal (W10, D2).

Lyon travel here after winning just two of their previous seven L1 road trips (D2, L3), with each of the five games that didn’t end in a draw being settled by a one-goal margin. Furthermore, the fact that Lyon have kept just one clean sheet across their eight away league games this term is concerning. Encouragingly though, the visitors have scored over 1.5 goals in 62.5% of their road trips this L1 campaign. Grabbing the first goal could be vital to Lyon’s chances, as ‘Les Gones’ are unbeaten in the last 12 L1 away games in which they scored the opener (W8, D4).

Players to watch: Nîmes’ joint-top league scorer Kévin Denkey has netted each of his three strikes after the 75th minute. Meanwhile, Lyon’s Moussa Dembélé leads the L1 scoring charts with ten goals so far, but he is yet to score beyond the 75th minute.

Stat attack: Nîmes have scored 57.14% of their home league goals in the 15 minutes before half-time. Six of Lyon’s eight L1 away fixtures have featured over 1.5 goals at half-time – a league-high. Each of the last six top-flight H2Hs held here have produced over 2.5 goals.
