After dominating Ligue 1 and winning seven titles in a row between 2002 and 2008 Olympique Lyonnais have fallen short in the past few seasons. Last year Les Gones managed a third placed finish and head coach Remi Garde will be looking to improve on that in the 2013-14 season starting with Nice on Saturday. Garde has brought in a number of new players including Miguel Lopes on loan from Sporting Lisbon to strengthen his defensive options as Lyon had no problem finding the net last season. A higher finish in Ligue 1 could so easily have been attained for Lyon if not for their leaky defence and they will be aiming to start their campaign with a clean sheet against Nice.
OGC Nice were hot on the heels of Lyon last season and finished one place below them in Ligue 1 with just three points less. Their manager Claude Puel knows a thing or two about Lyon havng coached them between 2008 and 2011 and has made just a handful of select signings for Les Aiglons over the summer. Nampalys Mendy, Christian Bruls and striker Abraham Gneki Guie are all in line for their debuts on Saturday and Nice are expected to give Lyon a tough test in their opening Ligue 1 match.
