Ligue 1 at Comeon

Lyon Prediction

It’s a real ‘six-pointer’ at the Groupama Stadium as Lyon and Lille battle out out for the second automatic Champions League spot behind runaway Ligue 1 leaders, PSG, and following recent disappointing back-to-back defeats to Dijon and Nantes, the hosts have since bounced back with wins over Angers and Bordeaux.

Lyon’s position is 3rd prior to this fixture but trail their visitors, Lille, by six points – however, a win today would see them reduce this deficit to half and having won 6 of their last 8 home matches on home turf, Lyon will be fairly confident that they can grab all three points in this encounter.

Lyon possess a solid looking home record of 11-3-3 32/17 which includes 5 clean sheets, but their margins of victory and goals in general have been fairly low overall – 13 of their 17 home matches to date have resulted under 3.25 goals so far this season.

In addition, 5 of the last 7 meetings between Lyon and Lille have resulted in under 3.25 goals.

Lille Prediction

Onto Lille, and the visitors know that the onus is on their hosts, Lyon, to make all the running in this match as even a draw would deny Lyon the ground they need to make up on the visitors, so Lille needn’t take any risks in this clash.

Lille are also in fairly consistent form right now too as the visitors are unbeaten in their last 5 matches overall, a run that includes wins against Nantes, an impressive 5-1 thrashing of PSG (at home) and a 5-0 romp over Nimes, also at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

This decent spell of results have helped lift Lille into 2nd spot in Ligue 1 and although they trail the league leaders, PSG, by a massive 17 points, they still look well set to claim the other automatic Champions League berth ahead of tonight’s rivals, Lyon.

Lille’s away record reads a reasonable looking 9-4-4 23/17 which also includes 5 clean sheets and also an unbeaten run of 10 matches on the road too, making them a difficult and stubborn opponent on their travels.

They too have seen 13 of their 17 away matches resulting in under 3.25 goals.
