Lyon – Lille : Preview & Prediction
Certainly more was expected from the season of Lyon and Lille: on the eve of the competition, two of the candidate teams (it was difficult to imagine they could represent anything more) to a Paris Saint Germain that has no rivals in its homeland: at least the first part from Ligue 1, said more. In short, Lille had started with other ambitions than, for example, Rennes and Nantes that precede it, just as Lyon certainly cannot be satisfied with chasing (for another, not even too close) a European placement. For this reason the National Cups could be a reason for redemption for both clubs.
Lyon are even seventh in the standings, even twenty points behind the undisputed leaders Paris Saint Germain.
Fifth place, however, for Lille, who however has only two points ahead of his next opponent in the League Cup.
In the last weekend, Lyon won the French Cup qualification after a crackling match against Nantes: 3-4 the final result.
Rudi Garcia’s team often offers a great show, but almost always grants something to the opponent: only a clean sheet in the last eight games played.
On the other hand, Lyon kept the door unbeaten only against the certainly not irresistible Bourg-en-Bresse in the French Cup.
The hosts are not distinguished by an irreproachable defensive phase and this, combined with the fact that in general the technicians operate a bit in turnover, can contribute to entertaining the spectators: we choose the Over 1,5 option.
