Lyon will be looking to end 2020 at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they welcome Nantes to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Wednesday at 8pm (UK time).
Lyon have had an excellent first half of the season and currently sit second in the league table, tied on 33 points with current leaders Lille (who face sixth-placed Montpellier away). They have lost just once in 16 league outings so far and head into this tie on the back of a 13-game unbeaten streak.
Rudi Garcia’s men have won eight of their last ten league games, which includes a 4-1 victory at Nice in their most recent Ligue 1 match. At home, Lyon are yet to lose this season, having won four and drawn three of their seven league games. Each of Lyon’s last four Ligue 1 games on home soil has seen over 2.5 goals scored, with Les Gones netting a total of eleven goals in that time.
By contrast, Nantes are one of the most out-of-form teams in Ligue 1 at the moment, failing to win a single game since the start of November. They have lost three and drawn four of their last seven league outings, including a last-gasp 1-1 stalemate against Angers at the weekend, with Charles Traore scoring an equaliser in stoppage time.
Nantes have won just three of their 16 games in Ligue 1 this season and currently sit 15th in the standings, just three points clear of the bottom three. Away from home, Nantes have managed to win just one of their eight league trips so far this season, while losing five in the process.
Can Lyon extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to 14 games? Or will Nantes record their first victory since early November?
