Nantes vs Lyon. Prediction for the French Cup match

"Nantes" and "Lyon" will play on the fifth of April in the semi-finals of the French Cup. The Lions were able to beat PSG over the weekend. Is the bet on the success of the guests obvious today?

Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Nantes vs Lyon


Nantes is not in the best shape - in the last ten matches the club has achieved only one victory. Moreover, the “canaries” had a victory not in Ligue 1, but in the previous round of the French Cup - 2:1 with Lens. In the rest of the meetings, Antoine Comboiret's wards drew three times and lost six times.

With such results, Nantes has already fallen below the middle of the standings. Now the team is not so far from the relegation zone. So, unlike the Cup, the prospects in the championship for the "canaries" are not the best.


Lyon are in a different situation in Ligue 1 than Nantes. In the table, the club is in the middle, in ninth place. The Lions are currently on a six-match unbeaten streak. During this time, the wards of Laurent Blanc won three times and tied. Moreover, in the last round, the team was able to beat the leading PSG - 1:0.

One of the victories fell on the “children” in the previous round of the French Cup. There, the team had to play with not such a strong opponent as Nantes had - with Grenoble. His wards Blanc won with a fairly close score of 2:1.

Game Totals Prediction

In this game, we do not really believe in the chances of Nantes. The club performs rather uncertainly in the championship, goes to the series without victories. But Lyon was even able to beat PSG in the last round. So we now prefer the "lions".

We bet on the victory of Lyon with a coefficient of 2.15 from Mostbet.

But we do not think that the “lions” will easily get the victory. Recently, the opponents have already met in Ligue 1 and shared the points there - 1:1. So now we are waiting for both teams to score. In the championship, "Nantes" is unlikely to be able to achieve anything. So the Canaries will tune in to the Cup in the right way and play actively in attack.

We also make a bet that both teams will score. In the line from the bookmaker, this option is valued at 1.78.
