Lower half of the table Ligue 1 side Nantes clash against mid-table Lyon in a Coupe de France semi-final clash.
It’s fair to say that both teams have not exactly had seasons to remember up to this point. However, Lyon are in better form and will be the favourites for this clash. Les Gones claimed a memorable 1-0 win over Lyon in their last game and are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions.
Nantes lost their last game 3-0 against Reims and are also without a win in their last four games in all competitions.
Head To Head
The teams last met last month with the score ending 1-1. They have drawn their last two matches against each other. Lyon though have dominated the clashes between the teams. Les Gones have won five out of their last seven games against Nantes. The last time that Les Canaris have beaten Lyon was in a 1-0 win back in September 2019.
Latest Nantes results
Les Canaris were comprehensively outplayed 3-0 by Reims in their last game. They are without a win in four games with their last victory having come in a 2-1 Coupe de France quarter-final win over Lens.
Latest Lyon results
The fallen giants of French football will be full of confidence after having gained a memorable 1-0 win over PSG in their last game. They are in relatively good form and are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions. Les Gones last lost when Auxerre beat them 2-1 last month.
Lyon are higher in confidence. I expect them to dominate this game from start to finish and to go on and record a 2-0 win.
Anytime Goal Scorers
Lyon- Alexandre Lacazette- He may not have his pace of yesteryear but the veteran can still be deadly in front of goal and his knowledge and experience is something that could be problematic to Nantes.
Nantes- Ludovic Blas- He is his team’s top scorer with six goals this season and probably their most likeliest source to find the back of the net.
