Olympique Lyonnais hosts Nantes

Olympique Lyonnais hosts Nantes in a match from the 8th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Groupama Stadium in Lyonnais.

Olympique Lyonnais started the new season in a positive way. They are currently 2nd in the league standings, although being on 8 points behind the champion and leader PSG. But let’s be real here – does anyone really thinks that PSG could have a competition for the title?

Right now Lyonnais have 13 points won and a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. They are currently in a run of two consecutive wins, achieved against Olympique Marseille and Dijon.

In the previous round, Lyonnais achieved a 3-0 win during the visit to Dijon. Moussa Dembele scored a brace for Lyonnais, while Martin Terrier added one more for the win.

Bertrand Traore is the man in form for Lyonnais at this moment. He has scored 4 goals since the start of the season. He’s going to be important for his team this season, that’s for sure.

Nantes is not doing so well. They are currently 19th in the Ligue 1 standings with 5 points won so far. Their record shows 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses. Right now they are in the relegation zone of the Ligue 1 and they’d like to get out of it as soon as possible. But we guess it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially when you are travelling to Lyonnais in your next game.

This is what is happening with Olympique Lyonnais and Nantes before their clash at the Groupama Stadium in the city of Lyonnais. Of course, the home team is the big favourite here. Bruno Genesio’s side is doing pretty well since the start of the season, so it’s going to be difficult for Nantes.
