Lyon vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday 3rd December 2019
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Olympique Lyonnais.
This match on Tuesday night has the makings of what could be a very enjoyable one as Lyon take on Lille.
Lyon come into this game in 7th place and seemed to have recovered from their poor start. At the weekend they came back against Strasbourg to win 2-1 and they have won 4 of their last 5 games, for them the only way is up.
Home form is still not great for Lyon where they have lost and drawn 4 of their seven games so far but they have won their last two in a row and when we talk of Lyon we need to talk only about their recent form.
Lille are in 8th place, one behind Lyon and both teams have 22 points so this could be a crunch game an exciting one. The away side’s form is not good with just 1 win from their last four, but that win was in their last game at the weekend when they beat Dijon 1-0.
Away from home Lille actually have the worst record in the league! From 21 points they have earned just 2 and are yet to win on the road. They have lost their last 3 games in a row and have scored just 4 goals.

Lyon vs Lille: Prediction
Lyon will be favourites and it will be for a reason because they are at home, their form and the fact that Lille are such poor travellers.
At the same time Lyon has not won at home against Lille since 2014 and so many matches have ended in draws. We think that can end in the midweek though.
Lyon are playing good football and looking confident and a win means they can make a real impact on the league after a nightmare start.
Lille will have their chances and that is why we can see goals in this game so back that market too.
