Will Lyon make the Champions League?

Lyon -1 @ 5/4 with Betfair

The form team of Ligue 1 going into last weekend, Lyon were looking for their ninth successive win away to Strasbourg. It would have been enough to secure a top-three finish and passage to the Champions League. But a late comeback from the trailing side flipped the game on its head and gave them a 3-2 win. It was a win that saved them from relegation.


It means that everything is riding on the final weekend with three points separating the three clubs competing for a Champions League place. Lyon are in control of their own destiny but face a tricky opponent in Nice with Mario Balotelli expected to make his final appearance for the French club before moving on to pastures new in the summer.

If Lyon can keep him quiet then they should be able to overcome Nice. The last time the two teams met, down in Nice, Lyon were rampant and won 5-0.
