 OL – OGC Nice : une revanche à prendre
This Saturday on the 14th matchday of Ligue 1 Conforama, Lyon will host OGC Nice in a match with a flavor of revenge.

The context

The international break will have allowed the players to breathe. Stunned by OM in a regrettable match, Lyon want to recover and move above a position of 14th place which does not suit them. From now on, everything has to be redone. It will be necessary to find a winning dynamic and to launch an attack on the podium, which sits just five points away. But that's not all, Les Gones also have a measure of revenge to take on their opponent. Last season, the latter came to the Groupama Stadium and won (0-1) in a meeting completely dominated by the club of Jean-Michel Aulas, authors of 30 shots against only eight for the opponents, including  the one that gave the victory to Nice.


The challenge

Back from the international break, this is the perfect time to get off to a good start. OL must resume its march forward to address their fixtures and domestic cups in the best way possible. Beyond the three points that will help them climb the table, the victory will allow the team to regain the confidence that had crumbled on the pitch of the Velodrome. The hosts must record a success that tends very often to be close to them, but one that they do not always manage to catch.




The opponents

Ranked 14th in the table, the Azureens are not much better and ahead of Lyon by only one point. Authors of a successful summer transfer window with the arrival of important attacking reinforcements like Kasper Dolberg, the Southern side are also in a place that does not suit their new English investors. Porous in defense with 19 goals already conceded, they posted three defeats in a row that made them fall in the standings, despite a good start to the season. OL must be careful of Les Aiglons who will come to be successful at Groupama Stadium -- and have proven in the past that they are capable of it.
