A Possible Victory for Lyon

Lyon cannot afford to let their title hopes slip just yet. The hosts have registered two big wins in their last two fixtures. They defeated Nantes last weekend on the road and hope for a third straight win against Lille on Sunday. Moreover, after losing 2-0 to Monaco in Coupe de France a few days ago, Lyon now has one mission. To either win the Ligue 1 title or qualify for Champions League. The hosts have some of the best talents in the league this season which include Memphis Depay, Karl Toko Ekambi and Marcelo. Depay and Ekambi are Lyon’s top scorers with 18 and 12 goals respectively. We expect them to inspire a win in this fixture against an equally strong side.

Less than Three Goals

Given the defensive records of both teams this season, we expect a tense fixture on Sunday. However, is it unlikely that both teams will find the net. We are backing Lyon to win this match with a clean sheet to keep their strong home record going now that they need a win more than ever,

No Goals on Both Ends

In a fixture like this, a strong defence and attack play significance. While Lille has no top scorer in Ligue 1 top ten rankings, Lyon has two players. Lyon has the third-best home record in the league with only 16 goals conceded and 34 netted at home. Lille has the best away record so far this season after conceding only nine and scoring 28. Based on these stats, Lyons looks more likely to find the net and keep a clean sheet in this fixture.

Match Preview: Fixture of the Week

For French Ligue 1 enthusiasts, Lyon vs Lille is the fixture of the last week of the month. Each team needs a win. But how they will perform boils down to team stats.

Lyon

Lyon manager, Rudi Garcia has defeated his Lille opponent, Christopher Galtier, seven times in their last 18 meetings. There have been five draws between the two managers. However, the hosts have only defeated Lille four times in their last 19 encounters. Moreover, there have been eight draws between the two teams, with Lille bagging seven victories. Lyon hosts Lille on the back of two victories, results they hope to build on in their quest for Ligue 1 title.

Lille

With five games to go, Lille has had one of their best seasons in Ligue. They remain title contenders despite facing some strong challengers in the race. The visitors visit Lyon on the back of a 1-1 draw last weekend when they hosted Montpellier. Lille has two victories in the last five games, during which they have drawn twice and lost once.
