Lyon vs Nimes Match Preview and Team News

Lyon has high ambitions in Ligue 1, they played great in the Champions League last season, and this time they want to challenge the title in the domestic competition. The hosts beat Dijon 4:1 in the first round and showed strength, and they also played attractive football. However, in the following two games, the home side managed to pick up just a point. They finished seventh last season and were one of the biggest underachievers in the competition. They have many young players who play great, and they play attractive football with a lot of goals. Karl Toko Ekambi will have the opportunity to show why he was brought in as an excellent signing for the future. Midfielder Houssem Aouar has found the right role in the team, he is doing great, and it is difficult for this guy to take the ball away. However, he was sent off in the latest match against Montpellier. Memphis Depay is the best player for the home side, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable. Rudi Garcia leads this team very well, he has a positive energy that drives the club, and the fans love him.


Nimes also comes into this clash with a low level of self-confidence. Les Crocodiles booked an impressive 4-0 win against Brest in the first round, but then suffered defeats from Nantes and Rennes. The team is in crisis after two losses. At the beginning of the championship, Nimes occupies the 13th place in the table, with 3 points won until this 4th round. Romain Philippoteauk is the best player, he plays on the left flank, and the opponents have a lot of problems to stop him. He is experienced and means a lot to the team. Andres Cubas is in great shape, has a precise shot, plays equally in both directions, and is an exciting player. Yassine Benrahou found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The main goal of the away side is to avoid the relegation battle in this campaign as well.
