Nantes needs to keep afloat with confidence
The Canaries had a weak last season, the team had to play transitional games for the right to stay in Ligue 1. Nantes was able to defeat Toulouse in a tough fight – 2: 1 away and 0: 1, fortunately, the away ball rule was in force. The club started off well this season with 4 points in three matches. Nantes suffered their first defeat in the last round, lost at a visit to Rennes with a score of 0: 1, quite an objective result. Four players dropped out of the fight at once due to injury.
Lyon misses the start of the season
The Lions are failing this season’s start with just two points in three games. In the last round, Lyon had to beat the sensational debutant Clermont at home, after the first half the score was 3: 1, but the opponent was able to make a comeback, the meeting ended with a score of 3: 3. As we wrote earlier, the loss of Memphis Depay turned out to be too tangible, now there is no one to drag partners along. Damage will prevent two performers from playing in this duel.
In face-to-face confrontations, the “lions” have an advantage, which is evident from the statistics. Lyon last season was able to cope with an opponent twice – 3: 0 at home and 2: 1 away.
Bookmakers are not confused by the disastrous start of Lyon, since it is the guests who are the favorites of this meeting. Nantes looks at least good against the background of the opponent. The Canaries are quite capable of offering decent resistance, despite the quotes. A bet on the exchange of goals scored in the upcoming battle looks quite promising.
