Olympique Lyon vs LOSC Lille
Tue 21:05 » Football » France, Ligue 1
It’s not been an inspiring campaign for Lyon so far, but four wins from their last five league matches show their form is on rising. Although they are in a modest seventh place in Ligue 1, they still have an excellent chance to qualify for the round of eight of the UEFA Champions League. But, in the league, they don’t have much space for new mistakes, especially not at home ground.
Coach Rudi García had a lot of troubles with the injuries of his most important players this season. For example, Mendes, Aouar and Depay are questionable, while Dubois and Marçal are unavailable for the upcoming match. So, they will again not have their most reliable team at their disposal.
Lille is coming here as the worst away team in the French Ligue 1. They have failed to win their last 11 away league matches, so they have no much optimism ahead of this match. Participation in the UEFA Champions League has left a consequence on their results. They do not have a wide enough squad to play successfully on two fronts, but they have quality.
Exciting clash at Groupama Stadium
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in their last five matches. But the more exciting thing is the fact that Lille has scored at least two goals in all the games. In this season they are capable of making many problems for any opponent in the French Ligue 1, so the Lions will again have a difficult task to keep a clean sheet. But, they will not lose – be sure.
