Nice go through the outstanding season. Apart from two back-to-back defeats in recent matchdays against Marseille 1:2 and Angers 0:2, Lucien Favre's team took the bronze medals of the Ligue 1 with 77 points taken and 60-33 goal difference. "Les Aiglons" participated in 18 encounters on the road resulting in 31 points earned, eight victories, seven draws and only three losses. The recent unlucky streak of the visiting team was caused by the great number of the injured football players. For instance, seven football players will not help their teammates in Saturday fight because of hurts.
Nice were not broken by Lyon in four last head-to-heads covering three "Les Aiglons"' wins and one draw. Despite the favourable statistics for Nice, the hosts are the favourites of the Saturday game as they will perform in face of their supporters plus they recaptured nice competitive form in recent encounters, meanwhile, Nice will not be able to use five first-string players.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win.
