Lyon vs Nancy Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lyon will be aiming to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they welcome Nancy at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Wednesday evening. Lyon were beaten 2-0 on the road at Saint-Etienne last time out, conceding both goals in the first 23 minutes of the game. On the contrary, Nancy picked up a 0-2 victory on the road at Nantes at the weekend thanks to goals from Issiar Dia and Julien Cetout. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Lyon Preview

Lyon have struggled in this early part of 2017, winning two and losing four of their six games after the winter break. Les Gones were knocked out from the Coupe de France a week ago following a 2-1 defeat in extra-time at the hands of Marseille and followed this up with another 2-0 loss at Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 last weekend. Despite their recent two defeats in Ligue 1, Lyon still find themselves in 4th spot in the league table, just one point clear off the 5th-placed Saint-Etienne. Lyon’s secret for their good performances throughout this Ligue 1 campaign has been their prolific attack, as they hold the 3rd best offensive record in the division with 40 goals scored in 22 rounds. Alexandre Lacazette has enjoyed a fantastic Ligue 1 campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 18 goals in only 19 league appearances. However, the 25-year-old striker got injured in Lyon’s Coupe de France defeat at the hands of Marseille towards the end of January, and he is still on the sidelines. This is the second time this season when Lacazette got injured, and each time Lyon have struggled without their star striker. On home soil, Lyon were on a three-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their 1-2 loss against Lille in their most recent home league fixture. The good news is that Lyon are undefeated in their eleven home meetings with Nancy in all competitions, winning ten and drawing once in this term.

Nancy Preview

Nancy, on the flip side, were on a seven-game unbeaten streak in all competitions between the middle of December 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but then they succumbed to three consecutive defeats. They were knocked out from both Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France during this poor run of form, losing at the hands of Monaco and CA Bastia respectively. However, the minnows have returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 at the weekend thanks to a comfortable 0-2 victory on the road at Nantes. The win lifts Nancy in 11th spot in the league table with 27 points under their belts after 22 rounds, four points clear of the relegation zone. Scoring goals has definitely been Nancy’s main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as they hold the second worst offensive record in the division with just 18 goals scored in 22 league outings. Issiar Dia has been Nancy’s most in-form player throughout the season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with just 4 goals in his 17 league appearances. Nancy can count on their away form ahead of this clash, as they have only lost two of their last eight away games in all competitions.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m not sure that Lyon will be able to get back to winning ways in this clash despite the fact that they hold a perfect head-to-head home record over Nancy. The visitors proved to be a solid side on the road over the past few months, and they scored at least two goals in three of their last five away games in all competitions. This having been said, I’m backing goals at both ends of the field.
