Nimes welcomes Olympique Lyonnais
Nimes welcomes Olympique Lyonnais at the Stade des Costieres in a match from the 17th week of the French Ligue 1. In our soccer matches tomorrow we will have a discussion about this fixture on Friday.
Nimes are in a difficult situation right now, positioned in the relegation zone with just 12 points won so far. In 15 games played, they have won just twice. They also made six draws and suffered seven defeats.
In their last five matches Nimes are without a win – two draws and three losses. In their last game Bernard Blaquart’s boys visited Bordeaux, but suffered a humilating 0-6 defeat – their worst for the season. You can be sure that Blaquart is not happy with this performance, so maybe he’s going to make some changes in his starting line-up for the next game.
Olympique Lyonnais will try to get back on their feet after a defeat in the previous round. Les Gones hosted Lille at home, but didn’t show their best football and lost it with 0-1. Against the Dogs the manager Rudi Garcia started the striker Moussa Dembele from the bench, but there’s a big chance to see Dembele starting on Friday.
Fernando Marcal is suspended for Olympique Lyonnais, while Ciprian Tatarusanu and Leo Dubois are missing the next game because of injuries.
In the same time Nimes can’t use Loic Landre, Theo Sainte-Luce and Clement Depres, who are also still recovering from their last injuries.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow for the Ligue 1 clash between Nimes and Olympique Lyonnais on Friday. We believe that for Les Gones this is a very good chance to get back on the right path after their defeat against Lille. As for Nimes, every point would be very important for them, as long as they could win it.
