Lyon went to Montpellier as the favs but was beaten 2-1 thanks to a brace from Teji Savanier. Memphis Depay, who just came from the bench, scored yet another Penalty goal. He already has 4 goals this season, 3 are Penalties. Lyon had a great Champions League campaign last season beating the likes of Juventus and Man City, but bowed out to the eventual champions Bayern Munich.
Nimes are surely thankful that last seaon was a shortened one. If not, they would've been battling for relegation. Before the league was cut short, they were only 4 points ahead of Amiens with supposedly 10 more matches to go. They won their first game this season, but had back-to-back losses since.
Lyon seems a little discombobulated at the moment, probably because of the impending transfer of Memphis Depay to Barcelona. That being said, they surely still have enough firepower. Nimes this season already scored 7 goals from their first 3 matches. With this, paired with the fact that Lyon's backline is a little shaky at the moment, I am expecting goals here, that's why I am picking the Overs.
