Lyon vs Lille: Match Preview and Prediction

Lyon vs Lille:  Lille entered this Coupe de France match having kept five straight clean sheets. In Ligue 1, three days ago, Lyon held Marseille to just one shot on target. This Ligue 1 season, Lille has only triumphed in two of its 10 away league games.

Lyon’s demanding schedule will continue on Wednesday night. At Groupama Stadium, they host Lille in one of the most thrilling R16 matches of the Coupe de France. In Ligue 1, Lyon’s first half of the season has been an absolute nightmare. Only their weekend’s 1-0 victory against Marseille allowed them to escape the red zone.

On Sunday night at Groupama Stadium, in the major French derby, Alexandre Lacazette made the difference. At last, head coach Pierre Sage is happy with his team’s defensive performance. On Sunday night, Lyon only allowed Marseille to muster one shot on goal.

Lille will be eager, too. Three days prior, they beat Clermont 4-0. Paulo Fonseca’s team scored all its goals in the first half. The team’s sixth straight clean sheet in all competitions. Lille rose into the top four of Ligue 1. They trail Brest by one point in third.

Lyon vs Lille: Betting Analysis

When Lille and Ligue 1 rivals Groupama Stadium met in November of last year, Lille emerged victorious, 2-0. In their last three meetings with Lyon, Lille has not lost. Less than three goals were scored in the final result of four of the previous six head-to-head matches between Lyon and Lille.

For the entire season, Lyon has had trouble maintaining silence at the back. They will, however, enter this tie in a strong position. On Sunday night, they restricted Marseille to just one attempt on goal. Lille, who has the second-best defensive record in Ligue 1 this year, will now face them.

Only in second place, Nice has conceded fewer goals in 20 league games this season than Lille (17 goals). Lille hasn’t let up a goal in five straight games in all competitions. The under 2.5 goals FT bet at 2.05 odds is the one we must choose.

The home court advantage should be huge. Lille won only two of 10 away Ligue 1 games this season. Lyon won their last four league games in front of their fans. Lyon also has a winning home record against Lille. Lyon to win or draw double chance is the second bet at 1.53.
