French League


Lyon can extend the unbeaten streak at home to Groupama to 6 when they welcome Nantes in the 28th round of Ligue 1. Against an opponent who is in decline, the victory for coach Laurent Blanc's army is the scenario. was predicted in advance.

Up to this point, it must be admitted that Lyon has not had a really successful season. After 27 matches played in Ligue 1, coach Laurent Blanc's teachers and students brought back 40 points and ranked 10th in the rankings. They are 7 points behind the European Cup position and do not have many opportunities to break up. Anyway, the end of the season saw Lyon's progress, when they were unbeaten in the last 11 matches. Last weekend Lyon drew 3-3 on Lille's field. It was also the first time since 2021 that Lyon did not lose after being 2 goals ahead.

Lyon's rising form is reflected in the fact that they have scored 12 goals after only the last 5 matches. If they don't lose to Nantes in this competition, Lyon will extend their unbeaten streak to 5. This is also the longest losing streak of "Lions" this season. At home, Lyon is unbeaten in the last 5 times to welcome guests (draw 3, win 2). Lyon also has a reason to be confident because they have not lost all 6 previous encounters with Nantes, drawn 1 and won 5 matches. In particular, Lyon also won the last 2 times to welcome this opponent, scoring 3 goals per game.

It was thought that Nantes would soon accumulate enough points safely to stay in the relegation zone, but the recent decline in performance put Kombouare under great pressure. The last match Nantes drew 2-2 when welcoming Nice at home. Thus, Nantes has not won the last 4 matches, drawn 1 and lost 3 since the victory against Lorient in February. Along with that, Nantes also stopped in the round of 16 of the Europa League, after losing to Juventus with total score 1-4 over two matches.

Currently, Nantes is 14th in Ligue 1, bringing in 29 points from 27 matches and 6 points above the relegation zone. In the last 4 matches, Nantes has conceded 10 goals. Nantes are one of only six teams in Ligue 1 to score less than 30 goals in 27 matches. The Nantes defense has played badly when away from home recently, conceding 7 goals in the last 2 away matches. The house Ta88 shows that Nantes has also lost both of the recent 2 matches away from home and the door to win points against Lyon is very narrow.
