Lyon is on a downward slope at the moment, and on Friday night it will receive the visit of Nimes and I consider that this game fell at a very good time for the hosts because they can recover after 2 weak games.
The match will start at 22:00 at the Parc de Olympique Lyonnais.
He had started this season convincingly with a 4-1 victory at home to Dijon, but followed the trip from Bordeaux where the result was 0-0 despite the opportunities given by Lyon.
Only a few days ago he played in Montpellier and it was a very tense match, but the final result was 2-1 in favor of the hosts, and Lyon is forced to prevail now.
Jeff Reine Adelaide is down injured and will not be part of the squad. Houssem Aouar was also eliminated in the last game and is suspended.
The first match of this season was a very good one because they won 4-0 at home in Brest’s company.
However, 2 defeats followed which revealed the problems in the defense.
He lost 2-1 away to Nantes, then 2-4 at home against Rennes. However, it should be noted that on the offensive side he handles quite well.
Lucas Deuax and Sofiane Alakouch are injured and will not move.
There is also a good chance that Romain Philippoteaux will be missing because he is in advanced discussions regarding a transfer.
The 2 teams have met only 3 times in recent history and Lyon won in each of these games, with 2-0 at home and 2-3 and 0-4 away.

Football Prediction of the Day Lyon vs Nimes
Lyon has played very well in each of the 3 matches so far, being the team that controlled these games, but with Bordeaux and Montpellier it was very unlucky that it did not get more.
Nimes is doing well on the offensive side primarily because it is not a team to close.
That’s why I think Lyon will create a lot of goal opportunities.
The 2 teams have met only 3 times in the last 2 years and Lyon has scored at least 2 goals each time and I will bet on this even now, especially since the hosts need a lot of points.
Prediction Today: Lyon over 1.5 goals
