A balanced confrontation
During their last 9 oppositions, OGC Nice and Lyon show the same results. 4 wins, 4 draws and 1 setback. Advantage to the Aiglons at home who have won 4 of their last 6 confrontations against the Lyonnais.
Find the podium
After a mixed start to the season, Olympique Lyonnais is gradually finding color. Unbeaten for four matches in Ligue 1, the Lyonnais have completely returned to the race for European places. Friable on the outside, with only one success in four meetings, the Gones can, like their opponent of the day, virtually take the place of runner-up to PSG, in the event of victory.
Second place in the sights
On alternating current in recent weeks, OGC Nice have conceded two defeats in the last four days. Defeated in Troyes (1-0) last Sunday, the Niçois remain in line with their ambitions and can temporarily seize second place if successful. Best defense in the championship with 5 goals conceded, the Aiglons are solid at the Allianz Riviera.
