Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Lyon win to nil
Odds: 27/20 @ Bet 365
Still looking for his first win as Nice boss, Patrick Viera’s struggling side will travel to the Groupama Stadium on Friday night to face off against Ligue 1 powerhouses Lyon.
Starting with Bruno Génésio’s Lyon side, although the hosts may have been on the end of a shock 1-0 loss to Reims a fortnight ago, Les Gones have won both of their opening home matches without shipping a goal in return. With Lyon booking their spot in the Champions League group stages, the mood around the camp is very high. While their defensive record at the Groupama Stadium has caught the eye, Lyon also have a man in the final third enjoying an impressive start to the season. 22-year-old Bertrand Traoré already has two in his opening thee Ligue 1 matches.
As for former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, although he may have left his position in the MLS to return to his native country, Nice are drastically struggling to adjust to life under their new boss. Coming off the back of a 4-0 drumming at home to Dijon last time out, Nice have now failed to win any of their last seven matches in all competitions. With a string of off the field issues continue to steal the headlines, Nice have now failed to find the net in their last four defeats on the bounce.
Bet: Lyon 27/20 to beat Nice to nil in Fridays Ligue 1 matchup @ Bet 365
