Nice welcome Olympique Lyonnais in the Coupe de France Round of 16 at the Allianz Riviera this midweek.
A 1-1 home draw with Rennes at the weekend now means that the hosts have avoided defeat in their last seven competitive fixtures (W4, D3), with 57% of those matches featuring under 2.5 goals. Les Aiglons have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with when at home lately. In fact, they’ve won six of their previous eight home games in all competitions (D2), bagging 2+ goals in each of those triumphs. What’s more, they’ve drawn first blood in seven of those matches, with 61% of their goals scored in that period coming in the first 45 minutes. Yet, they’ve endured mixed fortunes in their past four H2Hs with Lyon (W2, L2), with all of those encounters seeing the winners on the day prevail by a narrow one-goal margin.
Meanwhile, the visitors stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to eight games last weekend (W, D2) with a 3-0 hammering of Toulouse at home. Impressively, Les Gones have found the net inside the opening 20 minutes of play in seven of those eight matches, scoring over 2.5 goals five times along the way. Moreover, Rudi Garcia’s men have racked up a six-game unbeaten away run (W5, D1), netting two or more goals in each of those five wins while keeping a clean sheet in two. However, Lyon have not enjoyed traveling to the Allianz Riviera lately, as they have suffered three defeats in their last four trips to Nice (W1), drawing a blank in all of those failures.
