Lille vs Olympique Lyonnais [Prediction, February 23]

This Sunday, Lille is set to meet Lyon, the former Ligue 1 champions, who are on the 6th place, with no European future as it stands now. We’ve chosen the odds from Ladbrokes for this match in which the hosts will attempt to get a stronger grip on their Champions League playoff place.

Lille went through the next round in Coupe de France, where they recorded a 3-3 draw against Caen that took them to penalties, and this qualification sent them to a March confrontation against Rennes. In Ligue 1 they managed to get a draw against Evian, perpetually threatened by relegation, but it could have been worse as the team was heading towards a surprise defeat until Ryan Mendes scored in the dying minutes of the match.

On the other hand, Lyon is trying to bounce back from the defeat in Coupe de France against Lens, the team from the second tier of the French football. They do look on track to do that as on Sunday they won with 3-1 against Ajaccio, and have yet to play the first Europa League leg against Chernomorets Odessa. Lyon is also five points behind Lille, and level with Marseille, but with a slightly inferior goal average.

The last time the two teams met, the match ended in a goalless draw that again didn’t help either much, which this time around would also be the score to avoid. Another noteworthy fact would be that Lille didn’t lose at home against Lyon since 2008, and have managed to score at last two goals in their last three Ligue 1 matches.

Ladbrokes has 2.15 odds for a Lille win, 3.25 for a draw and a 3.40 for a Lyon win, while both teams to score is priced up at 1.80. We are going to bet 6 units on over 2.5 goals with odds from the same bookie.
