Lille and Lyon will both being going into this game looking for a win after underwhelming starts to the season.
The home side – who were league winners only six seasons ago – are currently battling relegation in 18th place. This is more due to awful performances on the road rather than their home form however as they have won three and lost three on the road. It is also worth noting that these were all against sides in the top six (Monaco, PSG and Toulouse) although the home fans won’t enjoy reading that they have averaged only one goal per game.
Lyon are having a slightly better time in seventh but will be disappointed not to be among the title challengers. Like their opponents they have been woeful away from home having won only one of their last five although their spirits will have been boosted by a 2-1 win at Toulouse while Alexandre Lacazette is on red-hot form with four goals in three games.
Lille just hold the edge in the two sides’ head-to-head record having won two games to Lyon’s one, while three of those games have ended in goalless draws. On this occasion the bookies are leaning slightly towards the visitors.
A point for Lille could prove valuable later in the season so we expect them to try and stifle the likes of Lacazette and pick up a point. Lyon have also failed to score in three of their last four away games suggesting the Toulouse win could be an outlier.
For this reason we expect Lille to take something from the game, making a Lille win with Draw No Bet (19/20) very tempting. With a cagey affair expected as well, those who fancy a risk can get evens on the teams being level at half-time.
