Analysis and prediction of the match of the 4th round of League 1 “Lyon” – “Nimes”
The new season of the French Championship has successfully started and is starting to gain momentum. Of course, there were some incidents, but the fourth round is already on the nose, life goes on. The main trouble is the postponement of games due to the coronavirus.
Bayern – Schalke. Prediction: Winning the Champions League will inspire Lewandowski and Neuer. Over the last 10 games against Schalke, the Munich team have won nine victories. Seven – dry.
Lyon and Nîmes were lucky, they have no serious losses due to the coronavirus. Therefore, they will play their match of the fourth round. The meeting will take place at the Stade de Lumière stadium and will begin at 22:00 Moscow time. Lyon played all three possible games in the new season. There are definitely no problems with physical fitness. However, it does not fit with the results yet.
Yes, we managed to beat Dijon in the first game (4: 1), and then share the points with strong Bordeaux away (0: 0). Although it was even possible to count on more with the Girondins, the implementation failed. Only the “weavers” lost their last game, and therefore could not rise above the 11th line.
Actually, in the match of the last round, they visited Montpellier and lost with a score of 1: 2. At the 38th minute of the meeting with a penalty kick, the hosts’ midfielder opened the score. A few minutes before the break, Lyon midfielder Ussem Aouar was sent off. In the second half, Savagnier scored a brace and strengthened Montpellier’s advantage, but in the 81st minute the home defender received a red card. A minute later, Memphis Depay converted the 11-meter kick, winning one goal.
Krasnodar – Khimki. Forecast: Berg and Safonov will win before the Champions League. Murad Musaev’s charges do not yet shine in the attack, but they miss a little.
“Nim” also played all three possible games, and therefore has no problems with tone either. However, it turned out even a little less successful. Now the club with three points is at the bottom of the French championship standings, although the debut was excellent.
In the starting round, we managed to defeat the modest Brest (4: 0), but then two defeats followed. First from “Nantes” (1: 2), and then from “Rennes” (2: 4). In the latter case, the “crocodiles” even looked a little more constructive than their opponent in attack and could score more.
In general, in the new season with goals from “Nimes” everything is quite good. He scored in each of the three fights, and in total built as many as seven goals, which is a lot for the not-most productive French championship. At the moment, only the leading Rennes have the same performance in Ligue 1.
Khamzat Chimaev – Gerald Mirshert. Fight prediction: noisy Swede from Chechnya will put the UFC on its ears. Chimaev will fight for the third time in two months. The previous ones ended quickly.
It is clear that Lyon will again try to take the initiative into their own hands and achieve victory, the difference in the level of performers allows us to count on success. However, in our opinion, he will not be able to get out of the water dry. “Crocodiles” show bright football in attack, so we expect a lot of goals from the upcoming confrontation. The total over 2.5 goals for the odds of 1.72 looks tempting in such hands.
