Tip Reasoning

  • Only four teams are conceding more goals per game than Lyon in Ligue 1.
  • These two sides have kept just three clean sheets combined so far this season.

Fall from grace

Somewhat surprisingly, this fixture is a midtable clash. It is surprising given that these two teams were both involved in last seasons four-way fight for the Ligue 1 title and both finished top of their respective European groups during the week.

Champions Lille currently occupies 11th spot in the table and will be relying on their home form here to help propel them closer to the European qualification spots. They’re unbeaten in their previous seven home Ligue 1 outings, winning four of those and have not suffered defeat in any of their previous nine top-flight encounters with opponents Lyon. Lille forward Jonathan David is the leagues’ current top scorer with 11 goals so far and the hosts will be hoping that he can continue his exploits in front of goal.

Lyon were handed a one-point penalty due to the trouble during the abandoned match with Marseille and it contributed to them being two points behind their opponents here. But their biggest concern is how easy they’ve been to score against this campaign. They’ve conceded an alarming 25 goals so far, their worst return at this point of the season since 1982/83 – a season which ended in relegation!

Goals in order

We do favour the home side here but given both teams lack of organisation at the back, it could be a game that sees a high number of goals and so we’re expecting both teams to find the back of the net with at least three goals being scored.
