Lyon vs Lille Match Preview & Team News
Lyon’s three winless rounds pushed them down to 4th place and severely hurt their title bid. Nevertheless, l’OL managed to get back on the winning track with two straight victories. Rudi Garcia’s side is five points behind PSG, but with one game in hand. A potential win in this clash could see them back in the race, as they would be only two steps behind the defending champions and level with their upcoming rivals. However, Lyon lost in the Coupe de France as Monaco dominated the game, eventually winning 2:0. Memphis Depay and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net this season, and the hosts produced 65 goals. Lyon has been excellent at the home ground this season, but they lost twice in their previous five matches at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. The home side needs a much better display than the one on Wednesday to pick up three points.
Lille has a chance to get back on the top with a potential victory, but a challenging task is ahead of them. Les Dogues had a severe setback last weekend, drawing with Montpellier at home. Since they failed to secure a win, PSG got only one point behind them and made the title race super exciting. Christophe Galtier’s side enjoys its games on the road much more than those at the home ground. They are among the best visitors in the league, missing the chance to win just once in the previous ten outings. Burak Yilmaz and the lads celebrated in Paris three rounds ago, and they will try to put a similar performance. Lille is the best defensive side in Ligue 1, conceding only nine goals at the away pitches. If they want to remain on the top after the current round, Lille needs to secure another victory on the road.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a tight clash that can go either way. Both teams have had their hiccups lately, but Lille has been more confident when playing away from home. Lyon had difficulties against its upcoming opponent recently, as they won only once at the home ground since 2013. Lille had more time to prepare for this crucial game, and we believe the visitors might remain undefeated in this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Despite Lyon being among the most productive sides in the league, we expect to see a tight clash. Lille’s last three games remained under a 2.5 margin, and they are about to put another defensively solid performance. We shouldn’t see more than two goals in this match.
