Nice vs. Lyon
Saturday, May 18th 2013, 22:00 CET
Lyon meets Nice this Saturday that could give one of the teams a ticket to Europe, provided some other game has a very specific result. Betfair offers the best odds for a match that could end up much more interesting than anticipated.
Lyon is fresh out of a game where they handed the Ligue 1 title to PSG; not that the Parisians could have lost it, but considering the rivalry between the two teams, not sure how well the players must be feeling. PSG scored the only goal of the game in the second half through Jeremy Menez, thus getting these 3 vital points that allowed them to open the champagne, and leave an upset Lyon to mourn the loss.
Nice played against Evian, in a shocking Ligue 1 match that not many would have predicted the outcome. Evian won with 4-0 and boosted their chances of staying in Ligue 1 for the next season, while Nice have to depend on other results to see if they can snatch the Europa league place from Lille seeing as they have the same number of points.
In December Lyon crushed Nice with 3-0 and was still hoping for a Ligue 1 title, while Nice was still trying to figure out where exactly on the table they would feel comfortable. This time around, Nice starts without a few very crucial players like Traore, Eyseric and Anin, all sidelined because of different muscle injuries. Lyon is without Alexandre Lacazette and Remy Vercoutre with hamstring injuries.The game will start at 22:00, GMT+1, and I’m going to bet 6 units on Lyon to win, at 2.16 with odds from Betfair.
