Lille vs Lyon Betting Preview

Lille started this season in Ligue 1 very poor and after 12 rounds they are standing in the relegation zone. Last season they finished at the 5th position, but this season their performance is very poor. Home side have managed to win only three games this season and all wins were against very weak opponents, upfront their supporters. Lille also very eliminated in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League against Gabala (team from Azerbaijan). In this moment for them is the main goal to escape from the relegation zone and move up on the table. The match against Lyon is very important for home team, but they know it won’t be an easy job to stay unbeaten. Last season they have managed to beat Lyon upfront their supporters, but the situation has been changed and in this moment they will be more than happy if they take one point. Their attack is very poor – they failed to score in three of their last four games. On the other side, their defence is very shaky, one of the the worst in league.

Lyon started this season in Ligue 1 solid and after 12 rounds they are standing at the 7th position. It’s hard to believe that they can win the title, but they don’t have that expectation. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 3 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Visitors have already participated in that competition this season and they still have a chance to reach the next phase or at least to stay in Europe and continue to play in Europa League. Their attacker, Lacazette, who has already scored 10 league goals this season, is in the amazing form and he could be the most dangerous player for home defence. Lyon won the last two games and they hope that can take another three points. Their attack is doing good job so far after they scored 20 goals, but it seems that they have some problems in defence. They conceded at least one goal in 9 of their last 10 matches in all competitions, but their opponent has very poor attack, so Lyon believe that they can make clean sheet and save their net.

Team News

Home side miss Mendez and Tallo, while Bautheac and Obbadi are both doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Ghezzal and Jallet, while Valbuena is doubtful, so if he couldn’t play, Fekir will replace him.

Lille vs Lyon Predicted Lineups

Lille: Enyeama, Beria, Basa, Civelli, Corchia, Sankhare, Amadou, Mavuba, Preville, Eder, Amalfitano.
Lyon: Lopes, Rafael, Mammana, Diakhaby, Rybus, Darder, Gonalons, Tolisso, Cornet, Valbuena, Lacazette.

Lille vs Lyon Prediction

Both side are looking for three points. Home side would be satisfied with one point, but they are playing very poor, so visitors hope that cab get back home with three points in their pocket. However, I expect interesting match between Lille vs Lyon and believe that away side could win this game.

Lille vs Lyon Betting Tip: Lyon +0 Ah @ 1.85 (Bet365)
