Lyon vs Nice Live Free French Ligue 1 Match Broadcast online 2022

The Ligue 1 title chase heats up as high-flying Nice make the trip to a tough-looking Lyon.

Two of Ligue 1’s in-form outfits face off on Saturday as nice travel to the Groupama Stadium seeking their third straight victory over hosts Lyon.

Lille were humbled by the league leaders last weekend, and we believe that result could serve as motivation to get their act together, and when you combine that with the fact that three of their next four competitive fixtures will be away from home, where they have lost only once in their previous five domestic encounters, all signs point to a victory for this team.

Both teams suffered defeat in their most recent league fixtures and are attempting to regain lost momentum in a clash that could have a telling impact on the race for Europe.

Christophe Galtier’s side are currently in the third and final Champions League spot, four points clear of fourth-placed Strasbourg. However, last weekend they saw their five-game winning streak come to an end at the hands of Clermont Foot, allowing those below them to close the gap. Lyon also lost last weekend, beaten 2-0 by Monaco, in a huge blow for their own European hopes – now eight points behind Nice though only three off fifth-placed Rennes.

Olympique Lyonnais have not been shut out of a competitive fixture since losing 2-0 to Monaco in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France last year, but they have only scored multiple goals in one of their previous six games played in all competitions.

Nice are coming off an impressive showing in midweek, and we expect to see plenty of determination from them in this encounter, although fatigue might be an issue for them at some point, and with both teams fighting hard to earn a place in Europe next season, we do not expect to see either side to concede many opportunities.
