Lyon stand at the 4th position with only two points more than Nantes and they want to win this game. Home team want to finish the season in Top 3 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season, so they will be fully motivated to take three points tonight. Lyon play very good this season, especially at home and they are favorites to win this game. In the last 7 home matches in all competitions, they have managed to win 6 games (6-1-0). Against Nantes they have amazing records when they were playing upfront their supporters. In the last 12 home matches against tonight’s opponent Lyon won 11 games, while one game was finished without goals. The last season top scorer Lacazette woke up and scored in the last three games and without any doubt he will be the most dangerous players for visitors.

Nantes play very good this season and they have a chance to reach the place which leads in some of the European competition next season. Their recent performance is not at the high level. In the last 5 matches in all competitions they have managed to win only one match. They know that home side are favorites to win this game, but they could be very dangerous from the counter-attacks and will do their best in order to avoid defeat tonight. In the first part of the season match between Nantes vs Lyon was finished without goals and they hope that can take one point again. But, their performance at the Grand Stade in Lyon is very poor. They didn’t beat Lyon in 21st century as visitors.

On the other side, visitors will be without Cana (18/0 d), Lenjani (14/1 m) and Rongier (10/1 m), while Djidji (17/0 d) and Adryan (20/3 f) are both doubtful.
