Lyon vs Nice Prediction: Ligue 1 Match | 16.02.2024

Lyon will welcome Nice to the Groupama Stadium on Friday night for a Ligue one-on-one clash, with kickoff slated for 20:00 GMT.

Key Highlights

Nice’s Inconsistency in their Race for a Champions League Spot

Nice, who are second-placed on the Serie A table with 39 points, 11 points behind leaders PSG, will look to bounce back to winning ways after two matches without a win.

In their last five outings, they have won twice, drawn once, and lost two times. Their inconsistency have allowed PSG to build an 11-point lead at the top of Ligue 1. It has also meant that Nice are within striking distance from Monaco (38 points) and Brest (37).

Lyon’s Upturn in Form

Lyon have won their last two Ligue 1 outings. They won at home against Marseille before following it up with a 1-2 win away to Montpellier last Sunday. In between these matches, they defeated Lille in the French Cup.

The upturn in form has seen them climb up to 13th on the table with 22 points, five away from the relegation zone in Ligue 1.

They will look to make it three back-to-back wins as they focus on climbing into midtable in the latter parts of the season.


The head-to-head statistics indicate that this is a closely contested match. The two sides have met 20 times since 2016. Lyon have won seven times with Nice winning eight times. Five matches ended in draws.

In their last five matches against each other, Nice won twice with Lyon winning once. Two matches ended in stalemates.

Injury Report

Lyon have not reported fresh injury worries ahead of their home clash against Nice on Friday.

Nice will miss the services of defensive midfielder Alexis Beka Beka. The 22-year-old is sidelined with depression.


Given their upturn in form, Lyon will be a tough prospect for Nice at home. Nice will look to end their two-match winless run and fend off the chasing pack as they bid to keep their second place.

Lyon will win and continue their good form in Ligue 1, making it three consecutive wins.
