Note: The odds for this game are correct at the time of match preview publication. We recommend checking your picks with Netbet for updated match odds.

 Lyon to get their first victory of the season

Our first pick backs away victory. While Lyon is yet to win any game this season due to defensive problems, we think they will edge out Nantes in the fourth round of the 2021/22 Ligue 1 fixture. The visitors completed the double over Nantes last season and are unbeaten in three previous meetings.

Goals on both ends of the pitch

We are also tipping on both ends of the pitch.  Nantes has scored in five of the last six meetings with Lyon, three of which were home fixtures. The hosts have scored in six out of nine games they have played at home against Nantes. With that, the hosts are a high scoring prospect in this fixture.

Total goals: Over 2.5

We round off our best three picks with a bet on goals. This fixture will likely yield more than two goals. Since we are backing Lyon to win and goals on both sides, it only makes sense to go with a high scoreline at full-time.

Game Preview: Lyon Looking for First Victory in Ligue 1 2021/22 Season

Our match preview further explores both sides to give our readers more insights into this game.

FC Nantes

Last season, the Canaries lost both ways against Lyon. The hosts also struggled to stay in Ligue 1 but ended up playing in relegation playoffs against Ligue 1 outfit, Toulouse. They won the battle and hope for a better season. Nantes has recorded 1W (clean sheet), 1D and 1L in three games played so far. Notably, the hosts have conceded only two goals in the three matches. The second match was a 2-nil victory over Metz but fell to a 1-0 defeat last weekend in Rennes. The big question is can Nantes keep their good start at home by getting another win against Lyon? It is a wait-and-see for now.

Lyon

Lyon lost 3-0 in their first away trip this season. The Les Gones hope to put that behind them as they travel to Nantes for the fourth match of the season. However, a big worry for head coach, Peter Bosz is a shaky defence that has leaked seven goals in the first three games. They have scored four goals so far. Moreover, Peter Bosz averages only 0.67 points in three games, which is another worry for the Dutch tactician who had a memorable time in Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
