Lyon vs Lille Odds, Tips, and Predictions
This week's big derby match will be played in Lyon where struggling hosts will meet Lille in a clash of former Champions League hopefuls.
Interestingly, in the last ten h2h matches, Lyon and Lille played a draw on five occasions. This season, Lille has only one draw while Lyon did it twice. The visitors will be hard-pressed to keep their good run of form going with four wins in their past five matches, while Lyon will work hard to keep its net safe to build on their win last week against Montpellier.
Under 2.5 Goals
In their last five matches, four of them ended with fewer than three goals scored. Scoring is not that big of an issue for these teams, Lille has Jonathan Davis with nine goals while Alexander Lacazette has been terrific for Lyon with seven. Both teams will try to close off each other's strikers and make a more conservative approach to the game.

Lyon's home form is a reason for encouragement
Lyon ranks eighth in the Ligue 1 which is a good placement considering they have five losses this season, the same amount as Clermont who are behind them at number 9. No, another team in the top ten has more than four defeats. Lyon, however, has been counting on its home form where they have four wins, a draw, and a loss, which puts them into the top three home teams in the league this season. Their scoring-conceding goals ratio is very good when they play in front of their fans with a goal difference of 14-5. Lille is one of the toughest opponents for Lyon, the last time they beat them was back in 2016. Currently, there is a Lille undefeated streak of twelve matches.
