Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Over three goals
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Enjoying a very bright end to the year, a high-flying Nimes will host Champions League qualifiers Lyon at the Stade des Costières on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Nimes would have been disappointed to have only picked up a point against Guingamp last weekend, Bernard Blaquart will be ecstatic with his side’s end to the year. Unbeaten in their last three Ligue 1 appearances and really starting to find their form in the final third, a huge part of Les Crocodiles’ end of year push has come down to their continued showings at the Stade des Costières. Friday’s hosts are enjoying a four-match winning run in front of their own supporters and are yet to taste defeat on home soil since the 19th of January. Even more impressive for Blaquart, his side have scored two or more goals in six of their last eight matches at home.
As for the visitors, putting in a very dominant display in their 4-0 win at home to Caen last weekend, Lyon’s bright end to the year has seen caretaker boss Bruno Génésio secure another Champions League finish. Winning four of their last five and showing some real improvements since a three-match losing run last month, one man to watch on Friday will be the red-hot Memphis Depay. Bagging a brace against Caen last weekend, the former Manchester United forward has four in his last five Ligue 1 appearances. Scoring 14 goals in their last five outings, we’re backing a lively encounter at the Stade des Costières on Friday.
Bet: Over three goals at Nimes vs Lyon 1/1 for Friday’s Ligue 1 matchup @ Bet 365
