Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

There is 78% chance of Lyon and Nice a maximum of 3 goals combined during this Ligue 1 fixture according to our predictive algorithm and, without a strong favourite in the WDW market, we think that's where the smart money should go. Our calculations are made based on recent form, historical head-to-head (H2H) stats and the view of the betting market, and you can back it at 1.26.

Goal Statistics

Lyon's defensive record is very strong, P. Sage's men having conceded 1 or less in 6 consecutive Ligue 1 matches. An underwhelming PG rating of 1.3 for Nice makes sense in this context.
