Lyon vs Nantes preview, betting tips and prediction
April 27, 2018
Lyon can overtake second-placed AS Monaco this weekend. So can Marseille. But we expect Lyon to do it first. The chasing pack are level on points and Lyon are the opening act of the top four on the Ligue 1 bill. They host Nantes and all of the focus will be on one man.
Memphis Depay has been killing it in recent weeks. The former Manchester United flop has been the subject of our betting previews for weeks on end now because he continues to deliver. He’s scored six goals and created five more in his last five Ligue 1 appearances. A new central role has been the key to this extraordinary form. Speculation is rife that he could be set for another big-money move in the summer. Will Lyon be tempted to cash in?
Nantes have been in terrible form in the second half of the campaign. One of the reasons for the drop-off in quality is Claudio Ranieri being distracted by speculation linking him with the Italy job. It now looks as though Carlo Ancelotti will receive that position.
