Lille OSC is hosting Olympique Lyonnais at Stade Pierre Mauroy in round 9 in the French Ligue 1.
Lille is the only undefeated team in Ligue 1 so far this season, and they are in 2nd place with 18 points, 14 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals, the same amount of points as PSG at the top of the table. Lille is also playing well in the Europa League, and they are in second place in their group with 4 points. In their first two games in the Europa League, Lille has scored 6 goals while conceding 3 goals. In their last Ligue 1 game, Lille was playing against Nice on the road, and they have had 47% of ball possession in that game, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 88% of the correct passes. Lille conceded a goal in the 49th minute of the game, but they were able to get back in the 58th minute. The final score of this match was 1-1. Yilmaz is the leading goalscorer for Lille with 4 goals, while Bamba added 3 goals, and Araujo has 2 goals. Bamba has also added 3 assists so far this season. There are no injuries or suspensions in Lille at this time. Lille is playing incredibly well this season and considering they are playing in 2 big competitions, Lille’s success this season is fantastic. Of course, it’s still early in the season, but Lille doesn’t have any injuries, and they have a good depth in their roster.
After 5 straight games in Ligue 1 without a win, Lyon is now on a 2-game winning streak. During this streak, Lyon has scored 7 goals while conceding 3 goals. In their last Ligue 1 game, Lyon was playing against Monaco at home, and they have had 34% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 77% of accurate passes. Lyon has had a fantastic game in the attacking end, and they have scored 4 goals in the first half. Lyon conceded a goal and a red card in the second half, but they were still able to win this match 4-1. Depay has been Lyon’s best player so far this season with 5 goals and 3 assists, while Ekambi added 4 goals. There are no injuries in Lyon as of right now, but Bard is suspended because of the red card. With 13 points, 14 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals, Lyon is now in 6th place in the Ligue 1 standings. Lyon is a good team, and they are playing good soccer, but the best thing for Lyon is that they are not playing in the European competitions this season, while should allow Lyon to compete for the title if they are able to keep their best players through the winter transfer window.
The trends are on Lille’s side in this matchup, but they have been playing in multiple competitions this season, and they are playing a game every three days. Honestly, I think this game could go either way, which why I will pick something on goals here.
