Lyon managed to come in second last season due to impressive run at the end. The visitors earned 65 points and had 67:43 goal difference. Still they fell 31 points behind champions PSG. During preseason, Bruno Génésio’s team had to deal with departure of Samuel Umtiti who moved to Barcelona, however, they managed to sign Nkoulou and Mammana and Rybus. Although Lyon had decent preseason they were thrashed by PSG 1:4 in the French Super Cup.
Lyon lost only one game in 16 years to Nancy as they remained unbeaten in all others. It seems Lyon will be able to avoid losing to newly-promoted team, despite the fact they play on the road. It will be the first game in the elite division for Nancy since 2013.
Prediction for the match: Lyon to win with 0 handicap.
