Lyon started this season on Ligue 1 very good and after 21 Round they are standing at the 4th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the Top 3 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. They have 8 points less than 3rd on the table, PSG, but home side have one match less, so in the case of their victory against Lille, they could move up closer to team from Paris. Lyon’s recent form is very good after they won 4 of their last 5 league games, so they will be fully motivated to continue with good performance and win this match. Lyon play very good upfront their supporters (7 leagues wins) and their fans expect another three points. Their top scorer, Lacazette, who scored 17 league goals, has exploded this season and he could be the most dangerous player for Lille’s defence.

Lille stand at the 14th position with only 2 points more than the first team in the relegation zone, so they desperately need points in order to move up in the safer zone. Visitors know that they are underdogs against Lyon, but they have nothing to lose, so they will try to get back home with at least one point in their pocket. It will be very hard for them because home side have amazing attack. In the first part of the season, they lost at home against this opponent 0-1, so they will try to revenge them, but it won’t be an easy job for them because they have many problems with absences. Even 5 their players are at the African Cup of Nations, while another 3 players are all injured. Visitors are play very poor on away ground, so every result, except their loss, would be a big surprise.
