Match Preview

The Kids welcome FC Nantes to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday for this Ligue 1 match. After defeat last weekend for Lyon, both these teams now look set to finish the season comfortably in midtable regardless of the outcome here. Hopefully, the lack of anything to play for doesn’t turn the match into a damp squib.

Olympique Lyonnais come into the match on a run of three home wins in a row. They have picked up 10 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.

Les Gones lost their last league match away to FC Metz. Expected goals of 2.5 to 2.0 in favour of Lyon indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match, despite playing most of the second half with only ten men. Les Gones‘s Moussa Dembele was in good form as he scored a brace of goals against Metz. Dembele now has 19 goals this season in the league for Lyon and is the favourite at 1.67/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 3-2.

Their opponent on Saturday, FC Nantes, come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up nine points from a maximum of 18 from their

The Canaries won their last league match at home to Stade Rennais FC. Expected goals of 1.5 to 1.2 in favour of Rennes indicates Nantes didn’t deserve all three points on the balance of chances created. They were perhaps somewhat fortunate to score from their only two shots on target inside the box in the match. Although Kalifa Coulibaly couldn’t really miss his tap-in on the line. The final score of the match was 2-1.

Randal Kolo Muani is FC Nantes’s top scorer with twelve goals in Ligue 1 this season but was only a substitute against Rennes. He is 9/1 to score the final goal of the game against Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday in another cameo appearance here.

Olympique Lyonnais team news

The red card shown to Thiago Mendes in their last league match against Metz means Lyon will now be without him for today’s match. Sinaly Diomandé (ankle surgery) will also be unavailable for The Kids due to injury on Saturday.

Olympique Lyonnais may look to also make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against FC Metz in their last league match. Peter Bosz rang the changes at halftime with Malo Gusto, Lucas Paquetá, Jérôme Boateng and Houssem Aouar all withdrawn after a disappointing first half. Léo Dubois, Jeff Reine-Adélaïde, Tanguy Ndombélé and Romain Faivre will be hoping after a better showing in the second half, they get to keep the shirt from the start here.

FC Nantes team news

Wylan Cyprien looks set to miss out after collecting his third yellow card of the season resulting in a suspension. Injuries will rule out Charles Traoré (cruciate ligament) for the trip to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

They are unlikely to make any changes to the side that beat Stade Rennais FC in their last league outing.
