Ligue 1 leaders Lyon travel to Amiens to take on Lens. Lyon have been amazing this season and have won ten of their last twelve Ligue 1 fixtures. With Lacazette having a career year scoring nineteen goals in twenty games, Lyon are always going to have a chance to win games. Having won three in a row away from home and surged to the top of the Ligue 1 table this is a terrific story as Lyon are officially in a rebuilding phase. With Gourcuff , Lacazette, Malbranque and Fekir there is a good mix of youth and experience. Fournier has done a terrific job with Lyon and if they are to end the season with a league victory then surely this would be a fairytale come true.
Lens are struggling this season sitting second from bottom in Ligue 1. They face one of the toughest games of their schedule tomorrow when they host Lyon. Lens will look to Touzghar and Coulibaly as the strikers up front and in the cup game against Lyon Lens managed to net two goals, this was of course after Lyon had led 3-0 at the break. Lens have to start winning games or they are going to be relegated, home form is going to vital for Lens but can they get three points against the league leaders?
At the price i cant take anything but a Lyon win here. Lyon have won five in row in the league and have just beaten Lens in the cup. I like Lyon here to keep the pressure on everyone else. Lyon winning the league would be a fairytale with the money in PSG and Monaco so part of me is rooting or Lyon to continue this amazing season. A bigger part of me will be rooting for them tomorrow as I take them as one of my bets of the weekend.
