LYN vs NIM Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Ligue 1 returns after the international break with Lyon hosting Nimes at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the first match of this round.
With Ligue 1 seems to be heading for the familiar shores already and so early in the campaign after PSG’s impeccable start to the new campaign, Lyon find themselves fighting on a different front.
The Les Gones have already dropped a massive 13 points in the first 9 league games, and that’s the difference between them and the Parisians. That title race may very well be over and it’s the fight for the Champions League places which may infuse some life into a one-team league.
Fewer teams, more Fight-
Since the 2017-18 season, only three teams are eligible for the Champions League from France with the top-2 getting automatic qualification while the 3rd placed team enters the tournament from the 3rd qualifying round. Assuming PSG will win the title in the end, the 2nd place becomes far more important. As of now, Lyon are 5 points adrift of 2nd placed LOSC, and any slip up here could increase that gap to 8 after this round.
Even so early, Lyon are finding themselves with little or no room for error.
After winning twice in their opening two games, Nimes have gone 7 games without a win.
This is their first season in the top-flight and they have already shown a real fight in their group. They stated their Ligue1 campaign in an absolutely thrilling fashion as they won 4-3 away against Angers. But the real feather in their cap came in the next match. They beat the giants of France, Marseille, 3-1 in their first home league game of the season.
But those two wins came in their first two games and since than it has been a slow fall towards the bottom and they will have to sort out before it’s too late.
