Olympique Lyonnais hosts Nice in a match from the third round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s take a look at this game in our vip soccer bets for today.
Olympique Lyonnais enjoyed two wins since the start of the new season – against Amiens and Strasbourg, but they also suffered a defeat in the second round of the league against Reims away from home. Just like the last season, Lyonnais’ goal this season is to finish in the Top 3 and once again qualify for the Champions League. We can’t talk for fighting PSG for the title, because this seems impossible. But a Top 3 finish would be really good achievement for Lyonnais.
In their last game Olympique Lyonnais celebrated a 2-0 win at home against Strasbourg. Martin Terrier opened the score for Bruno Genesio’s team, while Bertrand Traore scored a second goal in the midde of the second half.
Nice didn’t start the new season very well. The team won just one point from their three matches so far, being 18th in the league standings with one point. Nice started their campaign with a loss at home against Reims, which was followed by a draw against Caen. In the last round Nice suffered a devastating 0-4 loss at home against Dijon. So far we can’t say that the legendary Patrick Vieira is doing a good job at his new club. If he continues like this, Vieira could face the sack very soon. Despite of his legendary status.
These are our vip soccer bets for today for the Ligue 1 game between Olympique Lyonnais and Nice. Both teams are performing very different since the start of the new campaign. Lyonnais are the big favourite here, especially when we consider how bad Nice started the season. Can they do better now? We shall see.
