Nantes is 15th in the Ligue 1 standings, but they haven’t been at their best this season. Last week, the home team defeated Vire with ease by a score of 2-0, and they will try to do the same in this match.
On the other hand, Lyon, who currently sits in eighth place in the league table, has deceived fans for the past year. In their previous league match, Les Gones were unexpectedly defeated by Clermont Foot by a score of 1-0.
Despite having an impressive team, Lyon will need to make the most of their resources before this game. Les Gones will need to step up in this match because they have largely failed to live up to expectations so far.
Nantes needs a lifeline right now because they are also dealing with problems. On paper, Lyon appears to be superior and ought to prevail in this match.
