Nice predicted XI v Lyon: Aaron Ramsey, Khéphren Thuram and Nicolas Pépé all absent

OGC Nice have a mounting injury list as they go into the final match of the Ligue 1 season. Whilst Les Aiglons have nothing to play for, their opponents, Olympique Lyonnais still have an outside chance of securing European football for next season. 

Nice’s injury list has been getting longer and longer in recent weeks, and the end of the season perhaps comes at the right time. Aaron Ramsey, Khéphren Thuram, Nicolas Pépé, Youssouf Ndayishimiye and Joe Bryan are all recovering from a variety of injuries, but none will be fit enough to feature against Lyon on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, Ross Barkley is ill, and Youcef Atal, Mattia Viti and Billal Brahimi are all absent through injury. Didier Digard, in what will likely be his final game in charge of Nice, will have to be creative in his choices.
