Lyon – Lille : Preview & Prediction
Lyon, 7th, is equal points and neck to neck with Lille, 8th, in view of a place on the podium. These two clubs are only 2 lengths behind Angers, 3rd, and the victory during this poster is important for both teams. Defeated in Russia against the Zénith (2-0) in the Champions League last November 27, OL will play its qualification on the last day against Leipzig. In Ligue 1, the results are better since the arrival of Garcia and the Gones posted 4 successes in the last 5 days against Metz (2-0), Toulouse (3-2), against Nice (2-1) and recently in Strasbourg (2-1). On the upward slope, the club Jean-Michel Aulas intends to beat Lille Groupama Stadium to regain a rank more worthy of its status. The LOSC has signed against Dijon (1-0) this weekend its first victory since 26 October. The training of Christophe Galtier is not at its best and the results outside are catastrophic. Thus, the Dogues have lined 4 failures far from Pierre Mauroy stadium, Toulouse (2-1), Marseille (2-1), Valencia (4-1) in the Champions League and Paris (2-0). This trip to the City of Lights promises to be high risk!

OL have 5 wins in their last 7 games played in all competitions.

Olympique Lyonnais should take advantage of Lille’s weakness on the outside (no win) to pocket the 3 points of the win.
