  • Lyon have won five of their last seven games in Ligue 1.
  • Nice are without a win in their last five away games in the league in a row, three of which they've lost.

Lyon vs Nice team news

Lyon

With 5 wins in their last 7 games in the league, Lyon have been in the best form of the season and thanks to this great run, they are now in 13th place in the standings. That being said, they remain only three points ahead of the relegation zone, but at this point, it seems that relegation shouldn't be a thing Lyon's fans need to worry about.

Meanwhile, only Johann Lepenant is out with an injury, although Lyon will also be without Jake O’Brien in this game as he serves a suspension.

Predicted LineupLopes – Mata, Caleta-Car, Lovren, Tagliafico – Tolisso, Caqueret, Maitland-Niles – Cherki, Fofana, Lacazette

Nice

After their loss to Monaco at home in the last round, Nice's shaky recent form continues. After all, Nice have won just two of their last six games in the league. Despite all that, Nice remain in the second place in the standings, but now their advantage over a few contending teams is almost non-existent.

On the bright side, Nice will finally welcome back their top goalscorers Terem Moffi and Jeremie Boga, who were away at AFCON 2023 with their national teams. Meanwhile, Alexis Beka Beka is away from team due to personal reasons, Sofiane Diop is injured, while Dante and Youcef Atal are suspended.

Predicted LineupBulka – Lotomba, Rosario, Todibo, Bard – Thuram, Ndayishimiye, Sanson – Laborde, Boga, Moffi

Confirmed Lyon vs Nice lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch: Alexandre Lacazette

While he's far from the 27 league goals from last season, Lacazette is still Lyon's most consistent player and top goalscorer. After all, 11 goals in 18 appearances is nothing to scoff at and Lacazette is still proving to be vital for his team.
