Lille vs Lyon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th March 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille and Lyon will do battle in the Sunday night game which could have the ingredients of being a classic.
Lille are in 4th place and just 1 point behind Rennes and they have set their sights on at least finishing 3rd. The club have been in good form winning their last 2 matches and winning 4 out of their last 5 and they are proving that their great performance last season wasn’t just a one off.
Lille have one of the best home records in the league winning 10 of their 14 games so far and losing just twice. They have scored 23 goals and conceded just 9 and their home defeats have come against PSG and Marseille the top two sides in the league this season. They have collected 32 points at home from a possible 42.
Lyon have moved into 5th place and are 6 points behind Lille they could make a big statement winning this game. Form has improved and they have won their last two games in a row and have lost just once in their past five games.
Lyon can’t move up a place but could go just 3 points behind Lille with a win and both Montpellier and Monaco currently have the same points as them, so they must try and win this game.
Lille vs Lyon: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 2-2.
- 5 from the last 6 games has seen both teams to score.

Lille vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon do not travel well to Lille and have won at this ground just once in the last decade, although there has been a fair few draw.
Lille should start as the favourites and they do have a very solid home record. But these games are usually very close affairs. Lyon have failed to step up when it has really mattered this season and because of that we are going to back the home side to get the win.
We also like Loic Remy who is a good price to score anytime for the home side and has scored a few against Lyon in the past.
