The LYN vs NIM match preview –
In a game played in the French Ligue 1, one of the heavyweights, Olympique Lyon, will be looking to get their season back on track as they face newly promoted side in Nimes on Friday.
Olympique Lyon have had the definition of a topsy-turvy season. If they went out and beat big teams comfortably, they would follow that performance with a lacklustre draw in their home ground. The team is still in the sixth spot in the league and has only lost two games this season, but the fact the talent they have is not being utilised to its full potential would be causing issues to coach Bruno Genesio. The season is still long, and many things can change before May of 2019, but immediate actions have to be taken to correct the mistakes.
Meanwhile, Nimes FC is a side who are making their way back into the top tier of French football after getting promoted from Ligue 2. They have proven already with nine games down, that they belong in the league and can hang with the big boys of Ligue 1. They are a gritty side with a really tight defence. However, their attack has always been a problem, and it is the area of concern that manager David Guion will be looking at with keen eye.

LYN vs NIM Dream 11 Team Predictions-
Since Olympique Lyon are looking to get on the winning colum, we have taken Nabil Fekir and Memphis Depay from their team in our side. They are a definite starter and proven goal-scorer. From Nimes, we Thioub, Ripart and Bobichan have been the most consistent players, therefore they too have been selected.
Another appraoch would be to give Lyon an all-out attack approach. Here the possible front four of the team is select from the side, along with their main defenders. Rafael is a doubt, but we will still risk taking him in our side.
