Lyon vs Nice Soccer Prediction Today


The same stadium was set on Thursday, May 16, the final of the Europa League. Even without going into the pitch, Lyon were happy to be 3-0 at Atletico Madrid 3-0 at Olympique Marseille. Not only to see the misfortune of his biggest national rival, but because the success of the Spanish team caused a change in the quality of the third place in the UCL league (Uefa Champiosn League).
In the beginning, the French Championship would give direct vacancy in the group stage of the Champions League only to the two first placed. However, with the change in ranking after the Europa League decision, the third will also have that right.
Thus, Lyon came to rely solely on their result to avoid having to play in the knockout phase of the tournament. No need to overtake Monaco, who is in the lead of the tournament with 77 points. Just confirm the third position.
That would make his fans cheer twice more. Not only would the team have a place in the most coveted tournament of the Old Continent, it would leave Olympique de Marseille, fourth place in Ligue 1 with 74 points, who need a trip from Lyon to reach third place.
Lyon’s situation could have been even more comfortable, but they were beaten 3-2 by Strasbourg, away from home on the previous day, having halted a series of seven straight victories.
However, coach Bruno Genésio has trouble managing. Suspended goalkeeper Anthony Lopes (34 games in the 2017/2018 French Championship) and Brazilian defender Marcelo (34 games, three goals) are suspended.
The casualties should be even higher due to the bruises of defender Kenny Tete (22 games, one goal); midfielder Myziane Maolida (13 matches, one goal) and striker Mariano Diaz (33 matches, 18 goals).


Nice also has ambition in the final match of the season. You need to secure the right to play in the next edition of the Europa League. When you enter the field this Saturday you will be in the qualifying zone for the tournament. With 54 points (15 wins, 9 draws and 13 losses) he is in sixth place.
Ligue 1 grants the right to participate in the competition to the teams that are between the fourth and sixth positions. Bordeaux, seventh with 52 points, and St. Etienne, who are in eighth place with the same score, still threaten Nice. The first will visit Metz on the final journey and the second will host Lille.
With a big advantage in goal difference in comparison to St. Etienne, the draw should be enough to leave the rival behind. Should Bordeaux win, however, it may be necessary to beat Lyon to retain their place. It will depend on the number of goals scored by the rival.
Swiss coach Lucien Favre will be able to count on practically all his squad for the clash with Lyon. The only drawdown should be for defender Christophe Jallet (15 games in the 2017/2018 French Championship, no goal). It is in the process of recovery from injury.

As the two teams will enter the field with advantage in comparison to their rivals in the fight for their goals, they are likely to assume a conservative position, preserving the draw and seeking victory without taking great risks. Such a stance should only be changed if the rivals get results that press them. In this scenario, Lyon, technically superior, is more likely to succeed.
