Olympique Lyonnais - Nantes betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:00 on 14/05/2022 played @ Groupama Stadium refereed by Florent Batta

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Olympique Lyonnais. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a home win.

Considering what they’re up against, Nantes can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 7.50 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

The previous Ligue 1 round saw Olympique Lyonnais display a rather inconsistent form by losing a very favourable matchup against Metz. While this was an away game for them, most predictions expected an easy victory. However, they unexpectedly fell behind in the early game and never managed to recover.

The 2:1 home win Nantes secured in the previous round seemed all but impossible before kick-off. They had to beat odds of 1.61 to win against Rennes, even with a home-field advantage. Surprisingly enough, they did exactly that thanks to a second-half decider.

Olympique Lyonnais have a reputation for consistently scoring high, especially in the past few matches. Records show more than 5 goals scored in total over their previous 3 outings, which is a fairly strong result.

Results and standings notwithstanding, Nantes have run into some defensive issues in this stretch of the Ligue 1. In the past 3 matches, they allowed more than 5 goals to their opponents, which may be cause for concern for their supporters.

One of the main reasons the bookies are pricing a home win at 1.44 is the previous clash between these two teams. Earlier in the season, Olympique Lyonnais won as visitors. To be fair, though, it was a relatively narrow victory.

The hosts went through a slew of unfortunate injuries recently, rendering some of their players unavailable for the match this Saturday. Sinaly Diomande, Jason Denayer, Maxence Caqueret will not be playing, though the team is still considered likely to win.

Thankfully, Nantes will be able to bring out their roster in full force, with no players forced to the sidelines due to injury or suspension. They’re still considered underdogs, mind you, but it’s something to consider.

Despite the risks involved, the strongest prediction in terms of value is an HT/FT bet that the hosts will take lead in the second half. It’s as risky as you might expect, though the 1 odds offer a decent return.
