Lyon vs Lille – Ligue 1: Intractable should be the more adequate term to adjective Lyon’s current moment of form…
The renewal imposed on the team is paying off possibly sooner than expected. The investment made on the team was strong, but especially on relatively young players who have a lot of progression margin.
Looking at their last 7 matches, Lyon has won 7 and drew 1, but those numbers are more impressive when we see that the team hasn’t conceded a single goal and has scored 24 in that period.
The current 2nd place and their advance to the round of 32 of the Europa League are more than deserved considering the team’s performance.
Lyon’s manager is looking to maintain the team’s current record, with his biggest fear being the team relaxing and despising their opponent.
Fekir, who has been the team’s best player, is finally healthy and is an option for this match.
Traoré and Grenier should be the only unavailable players for the home side.
Lille is going through a very tough time, with the Argentinian manager Marcelo Bielsa being banned from their facilities and the board looking for reasons to fire him without having to compensate him monetarily.
All of that has affected the team that is currently sitting on the relegation zone, but they can still save themselves.
Fernando da Cruz has taken over as an interim manager and has set the goal of getting to 18 points until the end of the year, and it is believed that if their players are focused, they will have chances to get some points out of Lyon.
Thiago Mendes, the team’s best player is back. Enyeama and N’Guesssan are still injured, while El Ghazi will also be unavailable.
Lyon: Anthony Lopes, Rafael, Marcelo, Morel, Marçal, Diakhaby, NDombèlé, Fekir, Depay, Cornet and Diaz.
Lille: Maignan, Malcuit, Edgar Ié, Alonso, Ballo, Amadou, Thiago Maia, Thiago Mendes, Bissouma, Luiz Araujo and Pepe.
Lyon vs Lille – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Lyon has been on an incredible moment of form, and they count on an offensive line with a lot of great quality players, so the home side is heavily favoured.
As we have seen lately, the quality of Lyon’s attacking players is a synonym of entertainment and goals.
So I believe this match won’t be any different and I expect the home side to score at least 2 goals
