Lyon welcome Nimes to Groupama Stadium in Ligue 1 on Friday night. Both clubs are desperate for a win after two disappointing results, who will come out on top in France?

Lyon Form


Olympique Lyon lost to PSG in the French League Cup final. They reached the UEFA Champions League semi-finals where they lost 3-0 against Bayern Munich.

Lyon began the new Ligue 1 campaign with a 4-1 win against Dijon, falling behind early before responding through a Memphis Depay hat-trick and an own goal. 

Rudi Garcia’s side drew 0-0 at Bordeaux before a 2-1 defeat at Montepellier. They were 1-0 down when Houssem Aouar was sent off in the 44th minute, Memphis Depay making it 2-1 from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute after the hosts were reduced to 10 men.

Lyon Team News


Midfielder Houssem Aouar is suspended and might have played his last game for the club. Midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide is injured after recently announcing his desire to leave the club.

Burkina Faso attacker Bertrand Traoré is unlikely to play with a move to Aston Villa coming closer.

Lyon left-back Youssouf Kone is close to returning from injury. Melvin Bard could start at left-back here with Jean a chance to start in midfield.

Nimes Form


Nimes lost their final three matches of the previous Ligue 1 campaign. The Crocodiles had a poor preseason, but put that behind them to win 4-0 against Brest in their opening game of the new season.

Jérôme Arpinon’s side couldn’t build on the momentum however, beaten 2-1 at Nantes and 4-2 against Rennes. Adrián Cubas and Zinedine Ferhat both equalised against Rennes but Nimes couldn’t hold on.

Nimes Team News


Attacking midfielder Romain Philippoteaux has been linked with a move to Brest and might not feature in Lyon.

Defensive midfielder Lucas Deaux and right-back Sofiane Alakouch are injured.
