One of the games of the day in Ligue 1 will see Lyon travel to Lille for a tough game for the Ligue 1 leaders. Lyon hvae gone through a little bit of a rough patch of late drawing three of their last five games and hitting a scoring drought in the process. Fekir and Njei have picked up the slack from the lack of goals from star man Lacazette who has just started to go through a little bit of a scoring drought. With that said Lacazette still has twenty odd goals this season and is top scorer in the league by six goals. Lyon need to start winning games again though as they dont want to let PSG catch them and while Lyon have been a fairytale this season they need to finish it out now and go all out for the title.
Lille have been a disappointment this season and non more so that Origi the young Belgian signed by liverpool pre season and loaned back to Lille. Origi has really struggled to find the net and has only three goals this season. Lille have a strong defence though and have only conceded three goals in their last eight home games. While Lille have lost two of those games it is obvious that this type of strong defence can be built upon if Lille can manage to keep their defence together next season.
This is a tough game to call here, Lyon have been struggling to find the net recently and facing this Lille defence is not exactly a good tonic for a team struggling to score. I'm going to take the unders here as I dont see many goals in either side right now. For those looking for a pick 17/10 about Lyon is probably just a little big and I will take the league leaders to come away with a win. 1-0 lyon looks like some good value also at 7/1.
