Posted on by Sreya

Olympique Lyon vs Nice

Olympique Lyon vs Nice – Olympique Lyon hosts Nice at the Stade de Lyon on 19th May, Saturday in a crucial Ligue 1 fixture.

Olympique Lyon are third in the league standings with seventy-five points after their 3-2 loss to Strasbourg in their last game which has left them just one point above the fourth-placed Marseille. Anything but a win tonight could see them not qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League as Marseille have a relatively easier fixture against Amiens.

Nice are placed sixth in the league standings with fifty-four points and are coming off an impressive 4-1 win over Caen in their last game.

Anthony Lopes is suspended while Mariano is injured. The visitors will be without the injured Christophe Jallet and Pierre Lees-Melou.

Olympique Lyon Possible Starting Lineup: Mathieu Gorgelin, Rafael, Marcelo, Jeremy Morel, Ferland Mendy, Tanguy NDombele, Lucas Tousart, Houssem Aouar, Nabil Fekir, Bertrand Traore, Memphis Depay.

Nice Possible Starting Lineup: Walter Benitez, Arnaud Souquet, Marlon Santos, Dante, Maxime Le Marchand, Wylan Cyprien, Adrien Tameze, Jean Michel Seri, Allan Saint-Maximin, Mario Balotelli, Alassane Plea.
